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.
