    Hello from Israel

    Post by ZigiMan on Sun Dec 09, 2012 3:18 am

    Hey everyone,



    I'm glade to find this community. I caught the "bug" of building a
    crossbow about 25 years ago (when I was about ten) from the late 80's tv
    show "Crossbow". Built one but wasn't satisfied and stopped dealing
    with building until now.

    It caught me again recently. I'm planing to build new one and already
    read a lot of posts and internet sites and blogs, and still learning.


    See ya,

    ZigiMan

    Shalom and happy Hannukkah!

    This is The place for everything you need to know about building a crossbow!

    I see you're a Northern Exposure fan as well. My Lady and I are currently watching all the episodes sequentially; she's never seen it, but I fell in love when it first aired as a summer replacement.
