    Hi from Scandinavia

    Hi guys! Think it´s time to introduce myself after taking part of some discussions in this eminent forum. Smile Loves the way you lift knowledge to higher levels. Doing it in group means more ideas and all the groups experience can be used.

    My own motivation comes from the exploring of unknown territories like the inswingerdiscussions and I like using tecnology from other areas in the archery-field. Joerg´s slingshot experience is examples of this. In my country it´s not alowed to build a crossbow so thats why I stay to small scale experiments.
    Have a military bakground and hope to share my experiences with yours.
    Should be fun to break the 500 ftps-barrier and still hit an apple in 100m.

    PS In younger years I felt ashame of my bad spelling in the english language. Nowadays I think I just develope it to a higher and more modern international level... Cool

    Howdy and welcome.

    Sounds like you have some fun projects ahead of you.

    And anything that could break the 500 ft/s barrier would be awesome to see.
