    I'm new.

    I know next to nothing about Crossbows.

    I wish that I'd bought a good Barnett Panzer before the Compound Crossbows became all the rage.

    I hate Compound Bows; Polymer Frames on Handguns; Polymer Stocks on Anything...

    And I hate Glocks; Hate Glocks; Hate Glocks.

    I Love 1911A1's; S&W Double Actions—without Gay Little Keyholes Please—Colt; Ruger and EMF Style Single Actions—

    And Love Walther PPs but am left really cold by the PPKs and PPKSs...

    I Love Anime; Indian Movies (Bollywood) and recently have really been getting into Nigerian Movies (Nollywood).

    I've yet to build a Firearm—Poor, Sans Workshop and getting Increasingly Lazy in my later years...

    But I do play a Firearms Designer online.

    {My best known effort is "Rastina Ophelia" a Modern Breaktop Revolver borrowing from the old H&R Auto-Ejector...}

    I have a Completed Novel that I'm looking hard to sell to a Publisher.

    Let me know if you want a free PDF book OF 68 000 words, or know a good literary agent...

    {SF/Phantasy; Episodic; Victorian in Moral Tone, an attempt to bring back the Rollicking Melodramatic Style of Edgar Rice Burroughs...}

    {Need "E" Mail Address—Too large an attachment to PM...}

    I'll send you a PDF of Rastina Ophelia too... 

    O yeah, I like-Long Bows and Recurve Bows. I've always wanted a Takedown Bow.

    I was quite the Spear Man in my youth. I may have been the only kid in Southern Indiana with my own Real Steel-Bladed Spear back in the late 60's and early 70s—My father made him for me.

    I Love Knives. I lost my Western Bowie—and so far as I'm concerned, any other Camp or Self-Defense knife is a poor second best to the Old Western Bowie. I wish they still made them.

    O yeah, I have a Rat Terrier named "Hagrid Needleteeth"; a Dogge De Bordeaux named "Horatio-No" and a huge "Bloodhound" rescue named "Beauregarde Slobber-Jaw". Beauregarde was a "Rescue Dog" and I'm thinking that he may be Black and Tan or Boodhound/Black & Tan mix.

    Hermione was a 200 pound Bloodhound, but she got Cancer and went away. She's my Avatar.

    Do any of y'all's Dogs make ridiculous claims? 

    Horatio says that he was heavily involved in the Anti-War Movement in the '60s and burned his draft card. He says that he ran around Timothy Leary and Keasey and that he invented both Tie-Die and Bell-Bottoms.

    I tell him that:

    A.} He wasn't even born back then.

    B.} Dogs have never been subject to the Draft.

    C.} He would have hell burning his draft card, without opposable thumbs.

    D.} Navies have used Bell-Bottom Trousers since time immemorial.

    Hagrid mainly believes everything he sees on TV. He's very timid and my sister is watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" DVDs—so now he thinks that everyone walking up and down the street—day or night—is a Vampire.

    He wets all over himself if someone comes to the door...

    Doesn't keep him from going out and barking in the back yard at night...sigh...

    Anyone else have Reality-Challenged Dogs?

    Welcome!  You too can build your own crossbow.  There's lots of information here, about a gazillion ideas, and some of the sharpest crossbow minds on the planet.

    Want a takedown bow?  I can build you one.  The are a bit tricky... What draw weight are you looking for?  I made my Lady's daughter a takdown lognbow as a graduation present for her MS, back in May.
