when your friend does a fandom reference at you and you don’t get it the first time
And I got a new back tension release the day before. I tried it for… ooh… twenty minutes. Got in three rounds of 9 with it. The first was 4 feet from the target in case I had an accident.
Introducing my new Stanislawski ‘Black Ice’:
Sunday: Turned up at the archery range in Ngau Chi Wan around 1:30.
Shot about five rounds of 9 before I had my new release set up how I wanted. (Got to use my new monocular too, so I could actually see the arrows in the target from 18 metres away. Finally!)
By 4:30pm I was getting into the flow of things, and everything just seemed to be clicking into place, over and over:
Was definitely in the zone by this point, and felt each draw was becoming lighter and lighter. Had to give up at 5pm, as the wind was really getting up and I could already feel the long trek back to Choi Hung MTR station in my buggered knee.
Still - brilliant day. Really enjoyed getting arrows in the yellow and sorting my release out. Only downer? The next day I was completely knackered and had to keep stretching my back and sides to make them less stiff.
Pretty happy, though. Pretty damn happy.
I always suspected I was a character from a sci-fi story living in the real world…
I can’t tell if I’m the one being disposed of, or the one doing the disposing, but both actually seem pretty fitting hm
thats me 100% tho
um ok I promise this is not my IRL aspiration but if you say so, TVTropes
Creepily accurate. Welcome to my world.
Compound: for women with actual boobs. For people who need sharper string angles at draw. For people who don’t want to spend 20 mins stringing and unstringing the damn thing just to get to shoot. For people who prefer a crisp, clear sighting system. For people who aren’t a snob about the sport and just get out there and do it.
I find it amusing that it’s ok to cheat if you’re hunting, though. I don’t hunt. (Hitting a target the size of a five pence piece from eighteen or forty yards away is always more impressive than being able to hit the broad side of an animal.)
my idea of a hot date
I had no idea there were women like this how do I find them?
I mean shit bro are we really that rare
There are women like us out there. I would do this with a guy
Dude we’re all over tumblr
(Yes, the paper targets are upside down.)
I quite liked this end. Next end was all about leaving a smiley, but I’m just not that good.
My efforts during last Saturday’s lesson. What did I learn? That I’ll be keeping that new release aid…
I can safely assume 98% of us should be doing homework
The other 2% of us should be marking it.
But I don’t usually go just announcing it to everyone. Like, “HI IM TOLSI IM LEFT HANDED” i just wait for someone to notice it later.
BUT WHEN I NOTICE SOMEONE WHO’S LEFT HANDED ALSO???
