    I knew that title would get your attention...I took my husband out today with a "dinosour" bow. It is very old. Anyway, it is the first time he ever even held a bow and hit the target everytime at 20 yards. No peep, just weird lookin' pins. Anywhoo, since I don't know anything about shopping for a bow. Is it possible to get him something decent with all or most the accessories for under $500 to get him started?

    Yes, very possible, you can get a rough idea about prices on e-bay. but usually those prices are a little high. You should be able to get a 2 or 3 year old bow with all the accessories for the price you're looking for.

    Of course it is possible to find something for him. But most importantly make sure you know what his DL is and how much he can pull back when you get a bow from a place that is other than a Proshop. There is nothing worse than getting a bow and slapping your arm everytime you shoot or unable to pull back your bow that you just dropped cash for.

    Jay has a good point. Whats his wingspan, fingertip to finger tip? Mine is 75". If divided by 2.5 I'd shoot an AMO 30" bow. I use a d-loop and shoot a 29" cam. The DW should'nt be too much, but most can be turned down at least 10 pounds from max DW. Some cams have DL adjustment within the cams, and might be a safer bet if you're (he) is not sure. Better a little short than long.
