    ... from Cabelas? The reviews on it are positive and the price is right.

    Also, as a noob, how can I tell what pull to get on a bow? Just for fun last night, I bent over and picked up a 40lb dumbell with one hand and held it to my cheek for a minute... is that a way to test one's relative strength or just some hooey I read somewhere?

    I wound up getting the 25lb PSE instead. It was $109 and they have a bunch at the Texas Archery Academy so I know they are rugged.

    So far, the bow does what it is supposed to with no problems. Once I learn to shoot it very well, I'll think about getting the trigger release and moving up to a 35 or 45lb recurve. I might get a compound bow some day but unless I'm going to hunt deer or hog, I don't see the need.

    I tried once to use my release with my recurve and it was pretty weird. My idea of shooting a recurve is much like throwing a rock, snap shooter.

    Very true; you don't see Byron Ferguson shooting moving targets or thrown asprin with a compress :)
