Why no archery?

I'm sure this has been asked before--but I view the discipline of archery as being very complimentary to my firearms shooting. If having a moderator is what it takes--I'll volunteer. Maybe be put to a poll vote?
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!

We've discussed this before. Archery is a wonderful topic but not defined in our mission. There are many outlets for such discussion. Forums sometimes are asked for small topic forums - why not a 22LR, why not airguns, knives, flashlights, why not XYZ? In many cases, the smaller topics in general forums get little traffic over the years.

Thus, we've avoid proliferation of topics where there are other outlets.

Thanks for the suggestion. Other mods can join in, if they choose but that's the way I see it.

Another time and place !!!

In the past, we have seen a number of posts, dealing with archery. Mostly in the "Hunting" section or Accessary sales. One big problem that you could do an entire forum on archery. I'm sure someone has already invented that wheel. I use to hunt deer with a bow and still shoot some field archery. I have a lot of respect for bow-hunting but that's another time and place. ....

'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.

TFL is firearm focused.

Threads/posts about peripheral topics associated with firearms or shooting (e.g. airguns, archery, hunting/self-defense knives, flashlights, etc.) are generally considered on-topic and left alone, however at this time there are no plans to introduce new subforums specifically dealing with non-firearm topics.
Do you know about the TEXAS State Rifle Association?

if a bow and arrow can be considered 'arms'.....then can flaming arrows be considered firearms?

Just a rhetorical question.

I was actually just looking for where the acronym definitions live.
If you feel that you're pretty should think about your significance to the Universe....and re-evaluate !

In the Library there's an entire section on "Acronyms, Abbreviations, and Terms".
