Good idea. Compound may be more forgiving and not so demanding technically but recurve helps you correct your stance and release.

Welcome to MT.O! :cheers:

From your description, I think you just find a new home on internet.  :tu:



And again welcome. :waving:

Sounds like a good kit, but we'll have to find you a nice flashlight.

Would you like something for the keyring or purse, twist to turn on or a clicky switch? :)


I have a black CRKT NIRK knife and a little pink Generation 2 SOG Micro Tool Clip along with a few other things I suppose.
I would probably want something that could go on my key ring with a clicky switch. Any suggestions?


AAA powered with a clicky switch might be a bit dificult as most of them come with a twisty interface.

Maybe the Lumintop Tool, http://www.ebay.com/itm/321104640646

Don't have one yet, but there are some members here who do so they might give you some more first hand knowledge on them.

Clickies are always a bit larger/longer cause of the extra space for the switch at the back.

Yes! Of all the AAA clicky ones you recommended me to try, the lumintop is my favorite.

I was just ready to tell our newbie it's probably best to stay away from all the tools forum, so she won't "turned".  I can't believe you guys got me start looking at 'lumintop', even in the welcome forum. :facepalm: :D

 :cheers: :tu:

I've only recently given in to using a release with the bow. Still getting the hang of that. And I feel very disconnected now. I think that's why I loved the recurve so much last weekend. You're so connected.

While iprefer clickies on my bigger torches, i can live with twisties on my small flashlights.

And i can´t mention enough how much i like the last 2 i bought - the Fenix E05 2014.

I love the 3 light modes - starts with low and goes up from there 8/27/80 lumen.

Have fun.

Welcome to the slippery slope  :D :D :D


For a AAA flashlight with a clicky, have a look at the Fenix LD02, too, I really like that one :)

Nice choice of tools. Climber, CRKT.
 :salute: :tu:

One question for you: long, recurve or compound?

(I can just hear your thoughts, guys... It's not that!)
 :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:


Ha!
I shoot a Mathews compound bow.
However, after visiting an outdoor show on the weekend and playing around with a recurve- I want one of those too.



Crossbow ftw.    Compound crossbow for when you really want it dead.

I think I love that it takes more skill to shoot a recurve.
I haven't shot a crossbow yet- maybe I'll change my mind.

Certainly requires less skill to shoot a crossbow.  But higher bolt speeds, higher energy hits and greater scope options makes them a bit more lethal--so good for deer hunting.

totally agree with you on that one! I'm more accurate with a compound, but shooting a recurve is much more satisfying. :)

I'm thinking the compound will always be more accurate for easily identifiable yardage- and the recurve for everything in between :)

Hmm, Crossbow - once i bought me a Horten Safari to slaughter it.

The last pic is what it will be some day, when i have gathered all needed parts (another hobby of me).  :think:


From the buy i still have 10-12 bolts and the big padded carrier bag, thinking to buy me a crossbow just for some shooting in my garden. But i´m not sure how long  i might be excited with it, and when it gets boring (no club or shooting range for crossbows here).

Have fun.

Bye,
Michael

Erstaunlich!

That's so cool.
It can be tricky around here to find a place to shoot crossbows too. Not allowed on gun nights and not allowed on archery nights! I've never fired one before.

I love StarWars, and for a fan like me it´s absolutely great to have a movie prop (replica) that was build from the same original parts as the ones used for the movies.  :drool:

But you would wonder how many hatred you can get from the collectors of old camera equipment, guns, or whatever was used, when they notice that you buy one of the items they are also searching for  :o  - to disassemble it and "only" use parts to build a movie prop. :think:


I think one prob with the crossbows is their power - they might just go through a target that was made to stop the arrow shot by a bow. Not the safest thing ....

Have fun.

Bye,
Michael
