My son has just spent the afternoon engaged in archery practice with his neighbor friend, using an old bow that I rescued from a dumpster one day when I was working (a perfectly good bow, I might add). Just wait until he sees the new bow that Santa's going to bring him tonight!
P.S. The old bow that I found is also collapsible so it can be stowed in a much smaller place than you would normally expect to find a bow. Don't know why anyone would throw it away, but they also threw away three perfectly good arrows at the same time. Brought them all home.
