    Hello everyone,  Very Happy

    I introduce myself "El Zurdo", I am French. I live Istres a city of the South-East of France. 

    Be indulgent with me please, I speak and I write very badly your beautiful language. 
    I would be grateful if you could use simple words and not use too much slang or contractions because I would have a hard time understanding you. 
    Which would be a shame for me!   Embarassed

    My nickname "El Zurdo", simply because I'm left-handed and if I believe my family and friends not so awkward as the legend says! 

    I manufacture functional miniature weapons on my free time. My YouTube channel (870.000 views) is of interest because few craftsmen make this type of weapon.
    typed on search Youtube "Gilles Lavandera" or "Comtedelanorena".

    That's why I registered on the Arbalist Guild. This forum of enthusiasts full of knowledge with which I hope to exchange opinions and share the knowledge and problems around this very strange art that is miniaturization...  scratch

    I recently built a medieval crossbow at 1/6 scale for a Texan collector. 
    With this crossbow, I set a world record distance of 49.21 yd. But the bolt could pull much further.





    Hope you'll like this new topic. EL Zurdo
