    Hello everybody, my name´s Gustavo, from Argentina. I love crossbows and bows, in fact ancient weapons in general and I´ve found this excellent site looking for some information about pistol crossbows and some transformation I want to make.
    Hope I can come up with something so I can share it with you.
    Excellent site and threads!
