Do you lock up your bow?
I have a gun safe that I use to store my guns. Some of the guns dont even have half the value of my bow. But I dont store my bows in a safe or even lock them up.
Nope. Strung and on display so I can grab one on my way out to the garage and take a shot!
But it's interesting that you mention it, because what you say is true. I guess if someone broke in, the last thing they'd take is an old recurve........unless it was a BOWSITER!
I have a back up T/D recurve in the gun safe, just in case.
NEVER crossed my mind, but I shoot a 30 yo recurve!
Nope! There left-handed so no one wants them.
Can't shoot it daily if it's under lock and key.
Guns aren’t locked up to prevent theft necessarily.
You married guys (and Jaq) have to lock up your guns and bows so your better half can't stand there and count what you have!
Na, all three of them are hanging in my basement shop. And I if I didn’t have two small children in my house I wouldn’t have any of my guns locked up either.
I lock the house when I leave does that count
I should be more careful I guess,,,, I do not even lock my house or cars etc, where I live,,,,,, my bows are always being used, so no, they are just hung up.....
Nope...although I do hide my arrows
No, but I put a trigger lock on my compound release so it won't accidentally go off and hurt somebody.
Takes a pretty big safe for a 64" bow.
I put mine in my safe when I lived in Dallas.
No because I’m pretty sure they would return it once they realize it’s old and left handed.
Would eat up a lot of space in the safe, which is in pretty high demand. Actually, I need another safe...
Mine hangs on my bedroom wall! If someone needs it that bad they can have it! Just don't let me catch you 'Borrowing' it! (grin)
Maybe just me , I like having my bows hanging in my garage and in my mudroom . Shows how much I enjoy archery and shooting my bow , nothing like grabbing your bow walking out the garage and taking a few shots .
Several takedowns are kept in my safe, bows I don't shoot but won't sell. Bows like my Ballistic from John Frazio, a double dyna stressed takedown by Harold Groves, the first Black Widow my daughter and ex bought me, the first takedown longbow Bob Lee made and gave me, and a few other Bob Lee's. Most bows are tools, but I do have a few I'm very partial to.
I have way more guns than I do bows, especially handguns. Some of them can easily be replaced by insurance, but some are destined to be handed down when I kick out, and I sure wouldn't want to lose them. I only have two bows, an Elite Synergy and an old Red Wing Hunter. Either one can be replaced.
Nope. I usually Shoot my bow daily.
Nope. they all hang in my tv room.... Guess you could say I'm careless. Like elknut, let me catch you taking it........
I wish someone would steal mine....give me a good excuse to buy a new one. After 2 years they aren`t worth anything anyway. They are like golf drivers.
Mine is layin on the kitchen table by the back door cuz i shoot it almost every day. Also a big knife layin close by in case somebody touches my bow.. (not really)
