Well, as long as you're not planning on getting involved with the committee.

Whatever you do, do not watch this, the guys laugh is the icing on the cake as he demonstrates a 10 shot repeating bow with a sliding magazine.

I did it years ago, Before Children. It was actually very relaxing and enjoyable, a bit like a cross between yoga and the good bits of golf (yes I will concede there are good bit of golf), in the whole 'be the bow' thing you have to cultivate, but with a lethal weapon.

Don't do it to socialise though. The number of dirty looks and straight out being told to shut ups I got for daring to try to have a chat with people.... at a club level, its a sport for middle aged extreme antisocial males with chips on their shoulder, and as handling a lethal weapon is part and parcel....

But at least the participants aren't as unhinged as people who shoot guns. In my youth a mate dragged me along to Wisley. Frankly, everyone I met during this brief hobby were absolutely, unequivocally, the very last people any sane person would want being able to access a firearm.

Interesting..  most of the people I’ve met on shoots have been lawyers or farmers..  they all seemed pretty decent!

That’s true in target archery, what you want to do is field archery, far more sociable and fun. 

A bit like golf in a way, you have a 36-40 target course and go round in groups of 4-5. 

I’ve done archery for close to 40 years, field archery for about the last 20. It’s a great sport and a hell of a lot cheaper than golf. Typical shoot, which lasts all day will cost about £8. Equipment wise you can get going for sub £100, although like anything can run in to the thousands, but it really doesn’t need to be. Biggest expense is petrol. 

Ive been lucky enough to shoot all over the world, been to some fantastic places and met so many great people.
