Saw him at the range when he told me. What a sigh of relief. He’s the only other man that touches my bow.

That’s a big X2.

I call him the bow whisperer, I’ve never seen anyone that can tune a bow as fast and effectively as Lawrence. I was in his new shop in September, he has that monster 190” whitetail he arrived on display in there, worth the visit just to see that

Ya, for sure good to see him back in the game. A lot of people have asked if he is available, now it's official that he is! He also deals with "Americas Best Bowstrings" (ABB), which are very good and highly thought of in the archery world. Give him a shout, he will be happy to help you out with whatever you need!

This is great to hear. I have heard nothing but the best about Lawrence, so the fact that he's gonna be back in action is a boon to archery in Alberta.

If you ever go on Archery Talk, the Prime Nexus 4 is getting a lot great reviews. The only bow getting better reviews is the Hoyt Ventum 33.

Nope, if you didn't like his service the last then I am sure he won't be heart broken if you don't go back.

Well said! Everyone has a choice. I know Lawrence would appreciate people making a good choice for both parties involved!😉.

Total rookie here, but really interested in hearing this...
Just posted in another thread about living in Parkland county and not knowing where to go or who to talk to these days. Sounds like I may have found my first and possibly the best and most convenient answer to all my questions.

Given the most recent Covid restrictions does anyone know if Lawrence is still taking phone calls and appointments? Even if its just to meet a rookie and maybe set the on the right path?

Best is to give him a call at the number posted in the top post of this thread.

He is excellent to deal with and was super patient and supportive of me when I was just starting out. Call him.

Default dont agree

Sorry, everyone, I see this situation from a different view. Many of you won't like what I have to say. I typically shy away from controversial armchair internet chatter, but I cant help myself on this one.

I have to preface this by saying it's not personal, and I have known Lawrence for a long time. He might actually agree with some of my words.

I have managed or worked in 5 different archery stores starting in 1987, and can say that working in the industry, there are many things wrong with supporting a "fella" working from his garage.

Simply, Lawrence should have to open a bonafide pro shop before purchasing and selling any archery products to customers. He should have to assume the same risks as others who have dedicated their personal savings to building a shop, employing staffing who depend on wages for a living, and offer a facility that will grow the community as a whole.

Lawrence's reputation is intact in this geographical area; however, if I was still in the archery business and made the above sacrifices owning a pro-shop in this climate, I would see that his ability to buy and sell goods was challenged. The idea that he can offer the same products as "Jimbows" (PSE and Black Gold) undermines the essence of owning a true pro-shop, along with making all the sacrifices as a business owner. This is why archery pro shops come and go in the capital area.

Not for one second should this announcement be celebrated... sorry.

Go ahead and get mad at my words. At the same time, go get your broadheads from AliExpress, then ponder why you have nowhere to shoot your bow this winter after hunting season. The practice of backyard pros may work in other industries; however, in the archery industry, it is fatal to people trying to make a living at it.

PS. Brendan's dad...love ya. Just don't agree.

K

I guess that means the two firearms dealers that worked out of their homes, should not be allowed, neither should some taxedermists, nor gunsmiths, nor a fellow I new when in poco, he worked out of his home.
Nor some hair dressers, I guess you should only deal with places with a retail store.

Basically that is what he is saying, yes.
Underground business are flourishing, always have and always will, for several reasons.
Some " shade tree mechanics " are great, others not so much, same as any retail store, be it automotive , hair salon , gunsmiths or archery suppliers.
My favorite Bowyer has worked put of his house for well over 30 years, doesn't have a store anymore , but I'm okay with that

Why would anyone try to open a retail store in the last year and a half?, that would be a terrible idea with all the rona problems. Working out of his home is a way better idea, if he is successful, good for him.
