    how much string pressure is on your guys fingers before you draw? was just curious to what you all do, do you use none at all or alot?

    I'm not much of a cook . For starters, I do not like to cover up the taste of meat with all the spices and things most recipes call for. I have found the versitility of a pressure cooker has brought a new found flavor and texture in wild game.

    I am hoping that I have found a solution to the problem of how to install a diy adjustable pressure button through the standard 5/16"-24 threaded hole in a just-cut-to-center riser (zero center), without having it protrude too far from the sight window face of the riser and push the arrow too...

    I have been shooting Morrison metal risers, off the shelf (Velcro), but with a pressure button. I set up the center shot so that the arrow tracks directly down the center of the bow line/string. I then bare shaft and set button pressure according to fine tune on bare shaft. It seems that most...

    One of the Australian disciplines I sometimes shoot is Barebow Compound. An old mate of mine (still shooting in his eighties) brought along a Hoyt Spectra to try. It had a tongue rest on it, no side plate, so I did not think it would be possible to shoot it with fingers, but I had a go anyway...

    Here is my situation. I maintain a "deep hook" while drawing the bow, I shoot 3U with a glove. I'm not super target orientated, nor am I slump over , short draw "hunting " form kinda guy. I try to shoot with proper form, with the hunting equipment I use in the field. My issue is that I seem to...

    Hi, I have a Ruger LCP and would like to add a laser sight that comes no when the firearm is grasped. I don't want to have to hit an extra switch because that kinda defeats the point for me. Crimson Trace makes one that can be had with the gun at time of purchase and also added on later...

    I am working on finger pressure to achieve consistent distance. Kisik Lee's shot cycle (http://www.kslinternationalarchery.com/Translations/Chapter%204%20Hooking.pdf) states that at setup 80% of pressure should be on the index finger, going to 40% index, 50% middle, 10% ring at full draw. This...

    I picked up a close out Loasch grip from Lancaster - I have heard good things and wanted to give one a try. It screwed right to the Das riser and pivots into the hand perfectly really like it - much slimmer than the Jager grips I have been using. But, I missed the sharp edge of my ground...

    I recently read somewhere that a callus on the bottom of the ring finger (of the drawing hand) indicates too much pressure on the middle finger (if I recall correctly.) Anyway, yesterday morning I was practicing and having a poor time of it. I remembered that discussion, and started consciously...

    I decided to conduct an experiment this afternoon. I was wondering how different grip pressures on my longbow would affect arrow flight/point of impact. Rather than shooting a fletched arrow for the test, I decided to use a bareshaft to tell what really happens. All shots were at 20 yds and...

    Another dumb question from up north.. Reading and re-reading "Tuning for tens" I gathered that you move the plunger tip (i.e. centershot) for spine adjustment, and tune the windage with the pressure of the plunger spring. However, it seems that spring pressure is also used for adjusting the...

    Well now, after having continuous problems with setting up the nocking point, a friend noted that it could actually be shooter related. That's a first, lol. Just to get an idea, I thought to ask how do people shooting three under distribute the string pressure between the fingers. As a...

    This weekend I watched Rick Welsh's video, Vol II and read an article by Terry Wunderle. One thing that they both recommended is to direct the pressure on the bow hand toward the target. This may seem like a very simple, basic thing, but I realized that I had not be doing this. I had only...

    since I am a string walking hunter, getting the string in line with my eye to wink the point is important. this puts a certain amount of pressure on my face from my release hand. I used the index finger as the anchor finger and have the draw weight during the draw about equal on all fingers...

    Just wanted to show my particular findings on two longbows here at the house. The one with the pressure point under the leather rest will use several spines with good flight, and you can see the arrow travel is very consistent. The pressure point on this one actually could be moved toward the...
