    Grretings from Queensland.

    Post by archaic.archer on Tue Jul 30, 2013 7:16 am

    Good Evening all,

    I am from Queensland, Australia.  I am relatively new to shooting crossbows and prefer medieval style crossbows to the modern style crossbow.

    I look forward to learning lots here, and will probably have many questions.

    Unfortunately, it will be a while until I can start to build my own crossbows (due to Qld legislation, I need get an armourers licence before doing so).

    Regards,
    Robert.

    Welcome to the forum Robert.
     There is much to learn here. Great group of guys and gals with much knowledge and skill. 
     Good luck with the license, look forward to more post.

    Welcom Robert!  Armourer's license? That's interesting.  In your spare time between crossbow builds you can knock out assault rifles and Bearcat armoured rescue vehicles for the Queensland Police Force!
