oooooooooh, I've been there before. I really sucks when it swells up after you do it, and then you hit it again!

YOUR NOT SUPPOSED TO DO THAT

YOU SHOULD NEVER DRY FIRE A BOW ----BAD THINGS HAPPEN
Stop yelling at me!!! Jp, didnt dry fire the bow. Arm was in the way of the string and after the release it swelled a little bit. Then two days later i did it again and that was an end result. This will make an interesting story for my bowhunters class at the end of the month.

My wife shoots long bow and re-curve. On top of being transparent white/Scottish, it looks like domestic abuse after she sends some arrows through the air!  She now wears a guard to prevent that from happening.

East player, I guess you know this now but your arm holding the bow should never be straight and locked.

ehh watsup doc? Didnt hurt just stung, and arm guards are for people who dont remember to keep proper form when shooting. Same thing with rifles, improper form=injury.

More people should wear protection. .... While engaging in outdoor sports that is. Actually at Calverton this weekend i noticed many shooters not wearing glasses and a few without hearing protection. My father is over 80 years old and still shoots a recurve. Never saw him with a guard.
