Nasruddin was an archer.

Nasruddin used to boast about his accuracy of aim.
Nasruddin used to boast about his archery's accuracy.

Are my sentences grammatically correct?

    There is a fixed phrase for accurate archery, slightly poetic, and perhaps archaic (but then archery is a slightly archaic art): His arrows flew true.

    Nasruddin used to boast that his arrows flew true and always hit its mark.

    And a phrase: May your arrow fly straight and your aim be true.

    "Nasruddin used to boast about his archery." should be enough. If he never hit the target, he would not have boasted. :D
