    Thanks for the warm welcome !!
    Ahh i forgot the .se Embarassed Corrected that.
    Yes we have a lot of nice crossbows here.
    Under the royal castle there is the lovely royal armory and then there´s the "Skokloster Castle" wich is a goldmine for crossbow freaks like us cheers .
    se http://www.postimage.org/image.php?v=PqALI0A
    Aprox 50 Crossbows hangin in the roof of Gustaf Wrangels armoury.
    Chief Commander Wrangel was plundering all of Northern Germany during 1630-1648.The 30 year war. A horrific reading what happened there and then Mad btw.

    More lovely pictures will follow as soon i have finished the moving to my new house (and new workshop in the basement Smile ).
