    I know most of this part of the forum is based on firearms. But I have taken up asiatic horse bows lately and its a hell of a lot of fun. Anyone else into this sort of thing?

    I own a Istvan Toth Tatar 40# double recurve compsite bow. (hand made in hungery) about to upgrade to a 55# Hun style bow :bowdown:

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say no one on this forum owns a horse bow

    You buy it from Seven Meadows?

    I was thinking about picking one up before the election went to the faggots.

    Do you actually practice shooting them while riding on horseback? Seems like it would be a bit difficult.

    Yes, seven meadows, I work with them, I am getting my symetrical hun tomorrow its :bowdown:. Archery is a lot of fun, and for the most part your ammo is reusable. I was just wondering if other people were really into it? I shoot my guns too. But when you see one of these bows in action its just insane. I am going to post up some videos or something.

    I am going to learn the horse element this summer, and yes they practice from horse back.

    I just started getting back into bow hunting, but I use a Mathews Legacy compound. My dad should be getting the long bow in that he ordered pretty soon. It's made by Martin.

    That's cool, bro. :cool:

    I've wanted to get into archery but my time & money always seem to go elsewhere. I have a Japanese friend (back in Japan now, I met him here in the US a few years ago) who is an amateur champion. He had (at the time) 4 longbows and 2 compound bows. :)

    I used to be into archery, and was reasonably good at it (got first in a few competitions), and then I discovered guns, and never really looked back :big grin:

    I have a couple of my grandfathers bows. I took them out one day with a friend and we couldn't hit shit from 25yrds. We resorted to guns after a very frustrating hour :hs:
