    G'day from Western Australia

    Im totally new to the Arbalist scene yet come with some prior wood working skills (bow making and arrow fletching) and a very annoying tendency to tinker, make and break bits and pieces to see how they work (which causes me to try to make my own gear instead of destroying purchased equipment :-)

    Australia game hunting laws are complex, just like our crossbow regulations (Western Australia being one of the last states not requiring a permit to own and/or use a crossbow).

    So be prepared, theirs a real chance that I will ask tons of silly questions in the effort to increase my understanding .....or otherwise explain myself poorly and cause confusion

    Totally awesome forum by the way.....

    Regards
    Riot (Jeff)
