Yeah. We see in the news the hyper sensitivity to guns and weapons over and over. Those folks would not have done well in my high school, where they owned a bunch of .22 rifles and had a rifle range in the gym basement right next to the wrestling room (not through the wall, mind you). Everyone knew gun safety rules and how to point and shoot a shoulder weapon by the time they were 12 back where I grew up. That's not to say that accidents in the field didn't happen when people didn't follow the safety rules, but at least they knew what they were.
I never got to do archery in high school, though some kids did. It seems like a lot of fun. I like target activities. My eldest has a condition that makes it difficult for her to track an object coming at her quickly or going across her field of vision quickly, which has hampered our playing of ball sports like tennis. So, when there's a sport where the thing she needs to hit just sits there in the same spot, that's really cool by her way of thinking.
