Looking at the outline of bows from legolas I realized that in the current sheme  we don't mention the origin of a weapon.

It came to my mind because e.g. Composite bows were never generally used in Europe but mainly in the steppes of Asia. But in England the Longbow became popular while Central Europe favourized crossbows.

So it might be an good idea to add that detail? I guess to some extent it was mentioned in most entries in the description but maybe it should be described with more detail?

Yea, there should be the detail in there. Different weapons for different needs, right? Composite bows have better accuracy, and are better for hunting (at least from what I know, shooting a beer can at 20 feet or so is pretty accurate), while 'regular' bows get better distance.

I'll have any bow that can shoot a beer!! hic... Hic

The word composite when it comes to bows is only to do with the material it is made from . Today it means a bow made from more than one substance but has nothing to do with how accurate it is or how far it shoots that is the design etc

Good idea. Will finally do a sticky Misc. topic, including that.
