    Default Lars Anderson Archery

    Lets face it, bow and arrow are far down on the list for most folks here as a choice for a martial weapon.... that being said, it doesn't diminish the skill and technique of Lars Anderson, who is a master archer, and dispelling some common fallacies on technique...

    Enjoy

    Make no mistake, I am not advocating archery as something to train for the modern warrior... doesn't mean I can't appreciate someone who has mastered that art.

    They are very similar especially on the mental side.

    Lars has mastered his niche.

    Very impressive. Disciplined, for sure.

    I have an unorthodox bow that a friend
    designed & built. He gave one to me
    a few years ago, and I do get it out from
    time to time, so I can "shoot" in my
    driveway. The pull weight can be dialed
    down very low to fish, or pushed up to
    65 lbs for larger game & distances. Peep
    sights are built in. He talked about building
    the next version that could shoot marbles
    & ball bearings, which I was interested in
    seeing, but he told me he would not
    build any, as he is in his late 70s, and
    has different priorities now.

    Pretty cool. I appreciate the research, practice, and dedication to his craft. The part about which side of the bow to hold the arrow reminds me of many martial arts; there is the sport way used to score points and then there is the much older and effective martial way used to win fights.

    I appreciate that that gentleman is not sport focused, but fight focused. Give that archer a G17, and I bet he could bust off the X and point shoot as well as most.
