Can I have a magic bow as my pact weapon without getting the Improved Pact Weapon Eldritch Invocation?


The Warlock’s Pact of the Blade feature specifies that you can only create melee weapons, but you can also turn a magic weapon into your pact weapon (without specifying that it’s only melee weapons). Can I have a magic bow as my pact weapon without getting the Improved Pact Weapon Eldritch Invocation?
