Albert A Rasch has written a review ( Part 1 and Part 2) on SeigeWorks “American” Longbow. These beautiful traditional style bows, without all the ugly gears and pulley that modern compound bows feature, really appeals to me.

    When I was a kid, I had a cheap bow, just some kind of wood covered with a laminate that looked like hardened glue that kept flaking off.

    It was a blast. Between that and my bb gun, there were holes in every tree, sign and junk car in the woods around my house.

    My friends have compound bows and they're okay to shoot, but I've never really wanted one.

    Those are some pretty bows.

    I had never looked, but always kind of thought that bows these days were either compound, crappy like my old one or ridiculously expensive.
    Those are nice.

    I have to admit, I like their horse bows more than the long bows. I've always liked that style.

    I guess my next weapon purchase will be a bow.

    I'm a Glock guy who's seriously considering a wooden recurve purchase this year. Also, how can you not like the name "SeigeWorks"?
