    Howdy and welcome to the World of Crossbows (said in a particular dramatic Voice) Very Happy

    Crossbows are certainly a fun change of pace in bow making and we are more than happy to help you out. I have dabbled in making longs bows, with some success, in the past.

    Well, you might be even more surprised that you're not the only person from S.Jersey here either. Smile

    However don't be too surprised about bowyers being (actually) the majority in this community...Not sure if it's because having a neck for bowyery just makes life more interesting when trying your hand at crossbow building or that we're just chill people that don't discriminate against other forms of archery...to be honest - I have no idea...We're just having fun here. Very Happy

    Welcome to the forum...always happy to see new people join in!

    Hey welcome on! I started with self bows and now am obsessed with crossbows. Watch out, it's addictive.
