Arrows by MissSelfDestruct Arrows by MissSelfDestruct
A set of arrows (one missing on the photo :p) that I made a while ago. I still really like how they turned out (especially regarding that I was on an accidental, week-long bad trip -chemistry lab possibly gone wrong and then a trip to the pub - while making these), so I thought I'd share :)

Sorry about the size of the photo. I like how the arrows look on this one, but can't seem to find the full-sized copy anywhere (I'll keep on looking and possibly replace this one).

Tell me what you think :D

Those are GORGEOUS. Did those shafts and feathers come looking like that? What did you use to wrap them with?

How do you get the feathers to be so ridged? Or are these store-bought?

They look great. :) I wish my arrows were as awesome looking as that! But I just have my dad buy mine at the store. I can't make arrows. XD But these look nice. :)

I know exactly how you feel... :(
I have a wooden recurve, two really nice sets of wooden arrows (including the one I made and never shot), an awesome leather side quiver and essentially all other necessary equipment but not a place to shoot. There are at least 5 archery clubs, but there's very difficult access to them and I can't reach them but in a car (and I don't drive myself of have a willing driver).
I spent some (short) time shooting in my old college fields, with an assistant principal as my coach (rarely, as he was a very busy guy) and i was pretty good at it. Now, I've not shot a single arrow for a year.
Every time I draw my bow indoors I have this terrible urge to shoot it - even though I'm standing in front of a closed window.

Sorry about the rant. This is really frustrating stuff ;p

It sure is :D I guess I'm lucky to have some family-owned forest where I can even shoot with firearms..just so far away I can't get myself to go there very often. When I was kid I was about to move there permanently. Still not a bad idea, actually :D

I wish I lived somewhere further from the city, or at least that I could travel freely...

Speaking of archery clubs, I just did some reasearch on google and found an easily-accessible one close to where I live. Except that it's led by muslims and there is "COMPLETE MALE AND FEMALE SEGREGATION WITH SEPARATE ENTRANCE"

Please, hold me. I want to cry.

Whew, finally stopped laughing.. *ahem*
but think about all those decadent influences you could get if bowing in company of men! Horrible.

I know, the thought of it is terrifying! And they... they would look at me!
...

Can you imagine a headscarf getting caught on an arrow? I'd piss myself laughing. That's probably why they segregate them, so they don't have to wear those. Or maybe so the boys aren't *forced* to sexually assault any of the girls because they saw an outline of a buttock thanks to all that obscene... -motion-.

All that loosely hanging cloth was what I had in mind, too.. and aiming through that tiny peephole.
Hmh..then again, those dudes may not want to be around when badly-treated females got projectile weapons in their hands. I wouldn't.

I'd love to see that. An all-muslim-women uprising, all with scythian bows/longbows, Lord of the Rings-style.
