    Hi everyone, i am new here. I really happy to have found this forum.
    I am looking to get a bow, and i like the shakespeare recurse looks.
    I was wondering if anyone know of any site that sell them. I've been looking at a few on Ebay.
    I live in San Diego and there i can't seem to find a place around here that sell archery items.
    aside from the bow, I was also wondering,
    how hard is it to put the string on a bow?
    I m atlethic and i also lift weights, so i can probably handle 45# i think.

    anything pointer would be greatly appreciated.
    so far, i don't have anything yet, except for money ;0)
    thanks,
    jason

    ok, i just figure out that i need the following:
    1) glove
    2) tab
    3) bow quivers
    4) armguard
    5) bow
    6) arrows

    please let me know if that sounds like everything
    thanks

    Shakespeare is out of business which is why you only see them on e-bay.

    It's not too difficult to string a recurve, but I would recommend using a stringer so you dont twist the limbs.

    your list is complete but you shouldn't need both a glove and a tab.

    :wave: and thank you for all the warm :welcome: :hug:
    i'll definitely do a little more reading on these stuff.
    been wanting to get into this stuff since i was a little kid, but my parents don't want me to get trouble and they don't like the idea of me possesing a weapon and i can understand their reasons. altho, i think that i can handle one responsibly now.
    thank you all for your response,
    jason
