    Greetings All, the AG was recommended to me by a friend (Stoneagebowyer) so since I have some interest in this area I decided to check the place out. I poked around a bit on here last evening and was truly impressed by some of the projects shared on here so I'll pull up a chair and learn what I can for a bit before I jump in with a build.

    Thanks for looking~

    Greetings Lee; Well you came to the right place! I too pulled up a chair, sat back to see what I could learn also before my first build (just finished my first). The knowledge here is beyond words. Made quite a few mistakes, but these guys will try to help you solve any problem you may come across. Bet you won't sit long! Anyway welcome to the Guild.

    Geezer here: Welcome aboard, Lee. You'll find lots of good info here, and best of all, everybody is friendly and supportive. Sarcastic jerks... there have only be a couple, and they either straightened up or took a hike. So don't be afraid you'll look stupid. All of us do that occasionally, but the friendly spirit hereabouts makes learning a joy.
    I predict your biggest problem will be deciding what to build first... there's just So Much here. Geezer.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys!!!

    Geezer, choosing a style or build WILL be my biggest challenge...I tend to bite off more than I can chew, go big or go home right? LOL...I am currently draw to the older designs and definately want to do a build that involves some bone and inletting. Thanks~

    Lee, good to see you have joined our family! It is a great site with a fantastic assortment of crossbow nuts. I've never felt more welcome at any site, though PA is a close second by a sliver or a margin.
