    Welcome to the forum. (or maybe I should say.... welcome to the addiction!)

    If you are just starting out, I would highly recommend spending a little bit of time and money at a good bow shop. They can watch you shoot and help you develop good habits from the start. Have fun.

    Depending on how old and how well taken care of...You may want to give it a once over closely checking the string for frays. A new string is cheap insurance ;)

    Have fun, practice, practice, practice, and don't over do it.
