Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, my dad is thinking of taking up archery and I am considering following suit (getting bored of rifle competition and hassle of dealing with rifle/handgun transportation). I have done some archery in the past and own a compound currently, used to own a recurve which I loved using.
I am currently looking at using longbows, but have never really fired one. So I am curious if anyone has some first hand experience with them and could offer some advice in what to look for. As well, I seem to only be able to find Martins, and I am really wondering if they are a good brand. Their Savanah bow seems like a pretty nice choice, but I don't want to drop money on it without knowing what I am getting.
As well, would you suggest ordering wooden arrows or going with metal/polymer (whatever the normal arrows are made of) ones? I have found a site that sells wooden arrows and they seem slightly cheaper than the metal ones I found in stores.
