Bow and crossbow: history of weapons

In the modern world, everyone can choose a hobby and sport according to their capabilities and wishes. As a result of the freedom of choice, there is now an increased tendency to engage in various fights and shooting, especially with old mechanical devices such as crossbows and bows.

Archery men in ancient times foraged for food and protected the camps. The weapon was quite primitive: a curved spruce branch and a tightly stretched string. Arrows were also made of wood with sharpened ends, and later had metal tips. Since then, many years have passed, during which this weapon was improved, and new materials were used in the manufacture of the bow, only its design was practically not modified. Now the bow is used mainly in the sport of “archery” but there are also fans of such exotic hunting with ancient weapons. In order for throwing weapons to be used for their Hobbies and for sports, the bow passes after its manufacture according to accepted standards, the archery Federation has strict control. This is necessary, first of all, for the safety of participants so that the bow is not a cold weapon. The device of the model bow is slightly different from the combat one, although their technical characteristics have been significantly improved.

A brother of the ancient bow can be considered another weapon something similar to it from a distance, but having a more complex design. We are talking about a crossbow that was invented before the bow in China, the purpose of its purpose was to protect their lands from militant neighbors, and was used as a hunting weapon. Crossbows came to us much later and were used mainly only for recreation and sports. In General, the design of a crossbow is different from the bow device in that it has additional mechanisms for fixing the string in a tense state. Modern crossbows have an improved design, which makes it somewhat easier to use. The basis of the crossbow is a barrel made of solid wood so that it can withstand the heavy weight load from the mechanisms adapted to it. To stretch the string, the warriors stepped on it earlier, later invented mechanical devices that provide the necessary elasticity.

Practicing such sports requires special intensity, attention and skill from its participants. Since the flight of the released arrow is affected by many external factors and it is almost impossible to predict the flight path. This sport is loved for its unpredictability and the ability to feel like a primitive hunter participating in colorful spectacles.
