    I am going to purchase one of those finish it yourself long bow kits. I was wondering if any forum members have used these kits and are they any good? Also, I was just planning to go to my local big box sporting goods store and pick up a box of aluminum(sp?) arrows but my know it all bud (we all have one) told me that you can not shoot aluminum arrows out of a wood bow. Does he actually know what he is talking about this time(it would be a first)? oh yea this is my first post so go easy on me if it is a dumb question. Hello all and this is just the first of many bows and questions.

    Thank you for the information and kind welcome Broken Arrow I went by the big box sporting ggods store and there were worse than no help at all. I was beginning to put the purchase off because the kit cost about 50 and arrows would be at least 60- thats just crazy. I have done a little research and I am going to try my hand at making my arrows.
