I was researching information on crossbows this week and discovered this forum through a post by Ivo on 'Crossbowforum'. I have been an avid archer (traditional recurves and Mongolian style bows) for the past 15 years and is my principal focus as a medieval recreationist in the SCA. Shot my first reproduction crossbow at an archery tournament last weekend and was immediately hooked!
I plan to build a crossbow in the near future and will be looking forward to reading the information (and anecdotes) on the forum. Looks like a great site!
