    Good advice by these guys. Especially the one about volunteering to help with the shoot. Many people never help because they may not have the time or are just lazy. They may have no idea of the work involved in setting out targets and tearing them down after the shoot. Then there's always need of kitchen help. So many small things. Getting involved gets you on his good side and those of others. You'd be amazed at how many good firends you make.

    Hopefully, if you have a club like mine there will be as many as 15 people setting targets and almost as many tearing down. This way it goes quick and nobody has to do a ton of work.

    So many times you'll hear people complain about one aspect or another concerning a course. These are generally people who show up at a lot of shoots, have their fun and leave. They never get involved in the work and can't appreciate the efforts of others, but they'll always have something negative to say.

    We were even more than that on Friday to set it up. I had to leave before it was completed but most of the job was done. I'd say it took about 2.5h to set the whole thing up.

    Make no mistake, I will always lay a hand whenever I can. This is a great community and I'm a proud member.

Also ask him if you can watch him do the work and you can learn while having it done.

    Didn't you make another post that you don't have to press the limbs to change the string and cables, just loosen the bolts evenly?

    Yes but it is much quicker for shops to press and repair. That way they don't mess with the customers draw weight.

    Thanks Hutch, that makes perfect sense.

    Because of your post about being able to do that without a press moved Martin up a notch on my list of bows I'm interested in. I'm a gear/moto head and maintain/modify our race bikes. I can't afford to take them in for every little thing. Bows look pretty simple by comparison and I think I could handle it. It's all the little things I would need to learn that will take time. I might jump into the deep end and buy a bare bow and start the learning process. Trial by fire so to speak.

    Martins have been a solid bow company. They back their bows and make them simple. This forum helps you understand why they are good. We stick together and help one another.

    If I buy a bare bow, or any bow for that matter, you better not bail out on me when I throw a barrage of newbie questions at y'all.

    I go to AT and another forums but this one is laid back and doesn't play I have a secret or my bow is better than your bow.

    Have no fear, always eager to help in any way I can, I doubt that you could ask a question that the guys on this board wouldn't have an answer for. Go on, go get your feet wet, you know that you want a bow.
