Grettings and Welcome,
There's an archery shop there in Austin. Archery Country, 8910 F-5
Research, Austin. (512) 452-1222.
You can use Ebay if you want or there are several on line places you can go.
Go to http://archery.ansteorra.org there are several links to other sellers.
I'd recommend at least a dozen arrows. They break.
Alfred is your local Archery Marshal jfeatherling at austin.rr.com
I'm the Southern Regional Archery Marshal, not that that matters.

Hi, I am Rose.
I am new to the SCA (since January) and very new to Archery. I have been
mainly pursuing cooking and textile arts, but am also interested in archery.
I am looking for some tips on a few things:
1. Where to get equipment. Internet? Ebay? Anyone recommend any local shops?
(I am in Austin - Bryn Gwlad)
2. What kind of equipment. I know I need a glove, arm guard, bow and at
least 6 arrows, and a quiver. Suggestions on types, brands, styles, etc?
3. Where to practice? As far as I understand, Bryn Gwlad is not currently
practicing archery, we lost our practice range on 9/11. Are there any other
groups practicing that I could hook up with? I think I heard maybe
I shot two Royal Rounds out at Academy of the Bow, one open with a 30lb (?)
'Scorpion' recurve (score 16), and one period longbow 50lb (score 14). I am
hoping to eventually get into Combat Archery as well, once I can accumulate
the proper armor and equipment (gimme like a year...)
Thanks in advance for your help!!
