Archery Suppliers On Line

Do you have a leisure pursuit that you like to carry out out of doors or are you permanently glued to the seat in front of your PC? If you never go out, then that is a pity and you ought to take that common piece of advice and get out more often .

And do what? – you may inquire. Yes, well that is your concern, is it not? But there are hundreds if not thousands of things that you can do in the open air and they are all healthier than sitting down in front of your computer no matter what you are doing with your PC.

I will confess that I spend too much time at my desk, although, in my defense, I will say that that is how I make my living. However, I do like to get out-of-doors sometimes too. I live in a country where foreigners, such as myself, are not allowed to own or carry anything that might be construed as a weapon. This includes penknives as well.

When I go out into the beautiful countryside it is only to stroll with my wife and look for animals – mostly snakes and birds.. However, I have had a lifelong interest in archery.

Something inside me desires to be able to hit a target from a long distance. I do not want to kill anything, but I am OK with people who do so long as it is for a good reason.

It would be great to make a bow and the arrows to go with it. I am Welsh and have always hankered after a Welsh longbow, although it takes a great deal of strength to draw a longbow. The minimum draw weight in medieval days used to be 160 lbs for a war bow, for hunting it was 100 lbs, but these days it is more like 60 lbs.

However, this is still pretty heavy for modern man, who does not usually pick up anything weightier than a pint of beer.

There are some fantastic archery dealers, but if you do not live near one, you should go on line and either place an order from there or have a catalogue sent to you. Two good places to start are ‘Footed Shaft’ and ‘Three Rivers’ archery suppliers.

Both of these companies will send you your desired items through the post and they have any kind of archery supplies that you may need. For example, they have finished goods such as bows and arrows, but they also supply nocks, feathers, arrow shafts and points so that you can make your own arrows.

Do you want to make your own bow as well? No problem. You can either purchase a kit with all the bits and instructions or you can buy a book or DVD and buy the parts yourself.

These and other on line archery equipment dealers offer good value for money and have very comprehensive stocks of archery goods. Their catalogues and web sites are easy to navigate and use as well.
