Question reblogged from Building An Unstoppable Fist with 22 notes

Anonymous said: where should someone who is looking to get into archery start?

First, I would recommend looking for local archery ranges. If you can, take a beginners course, this way you can get a feel for archery, and decide if you want to go further and buy your own bow and arrows.

If you want to go regular, modern bows, I would recommend 3riversarchery.

If you want to go traditional, historical bows, crowsheadarchery is a great place to look. They have nice wooden longbows for 180 USD, which is rather cheap as far as bows go. They also have a horsebow if you’re into eastern archery.

Even if you don’t have a range near you, you can still practice archery in your garage or house using a hanging carpet and blunted arrows. I have one set up in my garage:

Otherwise, you can post specific questions about form or arrow building or whatever you’d like in the bowblr tag. I’m always watching it, and there’s quite a few fine archers active there.

And remember the Five Pillars of Archery:

Successful shooting hinges on accuracy, the infliction of injury, the ability to strike from a distance, the ability to strike swiftly, and the ability to protect one’s own body. 

These five points are the pillars on which archery rests, and the true archer is he whose mastery of them is complete. They are interdependent in the same way as five entities vital to archery are interdependent, namely, the bow, the string, the arrow, the thumb-guard and the archer.

Great information. Also, funny how everyone has a different definition of ‘traditional archery.’ As 3Rivers Archery promotes itself as “The Longbow and Recurve Experts.” Though referred here as ‘regular, modern bows’ (which I would consider a modern bow as a compound bow). No statement or anything here, just find it funny the different points of view. 

Yeah, I noticed the “modern bow” part too. I associate “modern archery” with Olympic and Compound. Interesting.

What RPG class would you assign me?

Monk as the main class with Paladin/Knight secondary. I like to call this hybrid “Martial Artists of Justice”

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  1. Autumn In The White Carpathians
  2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan 
  5. Autumn Path
  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland
  9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic
  10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring
