    I took my recurve to Thursday night 3 spot vegas this week. I have only shoot it in the front yard about 4 times at 20 yards. The first thing I ask one of the Fita recurve shooters was what is a good score for a first timer. He said there realy is not a set point. So away we go. Started off good, felt good, hitting the scoring rings. Then I started hitting way right and way left. Almost off the target. A freind of mine(Yes I have them lol)(Bet you to it bowman) said do you want me to tell you how to fix your sights left and right? So the smart as# I am I started turning in circles and going click click.
    He said (I thought he was joking) to shoot backwards. Step up to the line, turn your back to the target and twist around, aim and shoot. So here we go. Boy the people started clearing out of the way. One arrow8 ring, second 7 ring, third 9 ring. So I did it 2 times and I broke it down to what was going on. It did fix the left and right. It just made you shoot with proper form for a recurve. It makes you torque your body up and get all the slop out. Because holding 45 pounds and aiming at the same time is not ez. And with not sight, all old school baby. So I as one more time near the end and the score thing. Mistey yelled he most likely shoot a 65. The guy said that is not bad for the first time. So I as him if I broke 100 would that be good. He looked at me funny and said if I can brake 100 that would be great. 2 more rounds to go. I told he all I have to do is get 1 more point to get 100. So I broke 100 on my first try.
    If you think that is nothing and have never shoot a recurve, The next 29 yard shoot you got to, borrow one and try to shoot a whole Vegas game with one.
