    My Grandpa just gave me a bow that I need to learn about. I don't know what string I should get or what arrows I can shoot.

    Community Help
    I've asked before, but I've never gotten an answer. What do the envelopes mean on the different threads? I assume one must mean closed, or something, but I can't tell, and it would be VERY helpful not to have to look through a thread only to find that the bow has been sold. Here's what I've...
