I haven't seen many composite bows at all, but while I have seen Composite Long Bows, I have NEVER seen a Composite Short Bow.

Are they out there? If not, why not?

I have a composite short bow (+1) in my chest.

As for bows in general, there is a general paucity of bows in comparison to the number of players that use bows ((any type)) as their primary weapon. I know I've talked to some of you about this and at least one DM has acted on the suggestion, but to raise the issue to the general DMship, Can we get the proportion of bows with respect to other rewards raised a bit?

Hmm I've given out a few myself.

Bow's are always good rewards, item wise. There's few PC's that Can't use one, and most do even if only rarely. Even tanks know that having a bow with you is a good idea, because they are useful.

As far as composit short bows... No idea why there would be so few of those, other then perhaps they were never offered for sale at a merchant.

The combo of comp longbow/acid arrows is common simply because they're dropped by Cuar every time there's a sereg attack.

At one point the 4A's R&D chest had something like 14 comp longbows because of that.

Less that comp shorbows are uncommon more that there's more longbows around due to simple drops.
