Tourette syndrome (also called Tourette's syndrome, Tourette's disorder, Gilles de la Tourette syndrome, GTS or, more commonly, simply Tourette's or TS) is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder with onset in childhood, characterized by the presence of multiple physical (motor) tics and at least one vocal (phonic) tic; these tics characteristically wax and wane. Tourette's is defined as part of a spectrum of tic disorders, which includes transient and chronic tics.

Tourette's was once considered a rare and bizarre syndrome, most often associated with the exclamation of obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks (coprolalia). However, this symptom is present in only a small minority of people with Tourette's.[1] Tourette's is no longer considered a rare condition, but it may not always be correctly identified because most cases are classified as mild. Between 1 and 10 children per 1,000 have Tourette's;[2] as many as 10 per 1,000 people may have tic disorders,[3][4] with the more common tics of eye blinking, coughing, throat clearing, sniffing, and facial movements. People with Tourette's have normal life expectancy and intelligence. The severity of the tics decreases for most children as they pass through adolescence, and extreme Tourette's in adulthood is a rarity. Notable individuals with Tourette's are found in all walks of life.[5]

I so want to post examples!

Tello, I love the smell of gunpowder but, I can fire the same arrows over and over again, works out a lot cheaper, and quieter. The dopey targets don't even know what hit them & I can get six shots off before they even wake up to the fact.

Ubbrd..... can you replace arrows for 12 cents? Try this recipe:

1x Large Rifle magnum primer
10 grains 452AA shotgun powder - or Red Dot will do...
1x 165gn Flat top Die Cast projectile

= one .308 round that travels at 1800FPS and absolutely flattens rabbits! And.... cases last a lifetime!!

I like the concept of archery, and once I work out how to use a nice compound bow, there'll be no holding me back...

In the meantime, I'll enjoy vicariously the victories of Ubbrd.

Ubbrd, it's interesting - sometimes one looks for something and is convinced it's the best (or a good) deal, but if things don't work out, one realises it's not such a good deal in comparison with another deal. Sometimes the universe condescends to stop and give us a lift.

Struth. I posted this comment on the other thread without realizing the off topic posts had been removed. I have deleted my post from the other thread & it follows below.

"R numbers, I can't get arrows for that price. The shafts I buy to make my target arrows cost a bit over $50 each, that's for the bare shaft. I have to buy the points, vanes (plastic tiny feathers) & the nocks (bit that sticks on the bow string) on top of that.  I have to cut the shafts to the length I want.
I hate making new target arrows, it's boring, but, it's something I have to do."

Ubbrd - I'll bet I can produce my 'arrows' at a far quicker rate than yours! Tried reducing the loads to subsonic - down to 3 grains. They perform like a 45/70... biggest rainbow you've ever seen!

Yep R numbers I believe you. It takes a while to make a dozen perfectly weighted arrows. My arrows when complete each weigh exactly 342 grain.
I never got into re loading when I was a shooter, I wish I did but I was too lazy.

Countess. Although my archery is generally tournament stuff (sighted compound bow). I get involved with traditional longbows & I make my own wooden arrows with proper feather fletches.
Australia has some of the best bowmakers (bowyers) in the world & the the wooden longbows they make are works of art that actually fire arrows.
There is a revival in longbow tournament archery in Australia & just about all tournaments have longbow divisions. I own 3 longbows.

Ubbrd..... Rifle reloading is not altogether different from creating your own arrows. It's about personal design to suit your particular preference. The recipe that I gave you earlier is for plinking.... the costs are much higher (around ten times in fact) where the need is target accuracy. Your precision = 342grains!!! Absolutely remarkable!!!

Hey ubbrd.... what sort of wood do they use to make the long bows with?


Got an old popular mechanics article about bow making somewhere and hubby thought it was interesting enough to give it a go but couldnt work out an equivalent Oz timber to use.

G'day Katbalou. the most popular timber used for wooden arrows is Port Orford Cedar. Austrian Fir  is popular in Europe but we don't see it here, as far as I know.
Any flexible very straight grained timber will work but, they should all be spined the same (amount of bend in the arrow when a weight is suspended from it whilst the arrow shaft is balanced at two points 28" apart. the spine should vary depending on the draw weight of the bow.  The heavier the draw weight of the bow the stiffer the arrow shaft should be. A bow which takes 50 lb of effort when drawn 28' requires a stiffer arrow shaft than a bow that is 30lb at 28".

Katbalou. I didn't answer your question (didn't read it properly). Just about any straight tight grained flexible timber can be used. most modern long bows have the wooden limbs covered with fibreglass. some longbows have bamboo limbs but most longbows are made with timbers that have been laminated.

There are different types of long bows, English Long bows & American Long bows are the two most popular.

Below is a picture of me with an American Longbow which was made for me by an Australian Bowyer. It will give you an idea of what they look like.
Google Longbow there is a gazillion sites about them. Note the can of Pepsi Max, my staple drink.
