I find this rather ridiculous. No one would do this with a melee weapon, you would die. During a fight you would not go and retrieve your arrows, you would die, you might be able to use some of the arrows the enemy shot at you though. After the fight has ended you would clean your weapons, retrieve usable arrows, etc.
