    Shouldn't you wear like a lil glove? In draft service, our G3 "battle rifles" would batter us noobs all pink and swollen after a day in the firing range. We even got to the point of anticipating every next bullet with dread, for the annoying mule-kick on allready numb shoulders... gives a good feel about weapon's power tho

    @zegh8578 i was shooting barehanded with thumb ring as usual, its just that i'm not used to shoot a warbow because of higher draw weight and faster acceleration

    @CzigBot 85lb turkish horsebow

    That's pretty damn strong, you must be as well to be able to use it. I want to get myself a bow sometime, I was thinking a ridiculously powerful old-timey crossbow with a cranequin or windlass, but an English longbow so powerful that I can barely use it also has its own appeal. Hard to find something with enough draw length for my height though.

    Thank you, actually i was a bit struggle to keep it balance while draw it on horseback though, i ussually shoot 60lb bow. So i just practice it as target shooting. Same here, i used to consider longbow back when i was in HEMA but i found composite bow more appealing without restrict someone based on their height.

    HEMA is another thing I was interested in, but I never got around to it because I was a broke high schooler at the time. Instead I've decided to do blacksmithing, I'm not very good at it yet but in maybe a decade or two I'll be able to make half-decent weapons, got a warhammer head that I've been shaping up but no handle for it. Made it from an old ball peen hammer.
