    A trip to Geezer's

    Post by SlingerDave on Tue Jan 10, 2017 2:13 pm

    Yesterday I was fortunate to visit Geezer/ New World Arbalist and talk crossbows with him. We knocked on the door, were ushered in, and proceeded to the workshop where we spent two hours learning everything there is one could fit in that time about crossbows from one of the most friendly characters I have ever met. His stories and instruction were most valuable and in most instances, quite hilarious as well. Thank you Geezer for spending your time with us.

    I don't know about that. I see him as knowledgeable professional that makes his living doing something that he loves. As I look through the pictures, I would say he is very common and loves the crossbow . I love his helmuts also.Also I see an old Daisy hangin there, some of those are like money in the bank.I am really impressed with him AND his apprentice.Great people, good with their hands.

    That Daisy Red Ryder came from my Grandmother's house.  Dates back to the 1930s. And yes, it still shoots.  Geezer.

    And actually, it's my apprentice/Journeywoman who puts us all to shame.  I may still be a slightly better bow mechanic, but for beautiful finished product, she's without peer.... at least on this side of the big-water.  There's Todd, in England.  His metal work is to die for!  Geezer
