    Hey

    My name is Peter and I'm interested in learning more about crossbows in general. I am an archaeologist, but for the present time being, I'm working as a journalist.

    Welcome Peter!

    You have found a great resource here to learn! The commonality here is we all love crossbows and crossbow like machines! Here you are wired in to both amateur and professional crossbow builders from all around the world, and a cool place to just hang out and read.

    Some other places you might like to visit are www.crossbownation.com
    www.crossbowforum.com, www.archerytalk.com and a few others like www.excaliburcrossbows.com have a forum of their own.

    Then are there are the many hunting forums which crossbows are just a part of. Look and learn!

    Hey and welcome to the site.

    Do you have any interests in particular with crossbows? I know you said in general but do you want to do target shooting or try your hand at building a medieval style bow?

    Yeah sucks having to do something other than what you want to do to pay the bills.

    Hi Peter, and welcome!

    FYI, Geezer has an extensive knowledge of medieval crossbows, the history, the making of them, and more.. did you have any questions of that sort for him. As does Pavise and many others on here. I am sadly lacking in this knowledge and hope to catch up to the experts in another 20 years or so...

    Take care;

    Lightly

    Hi, another new guy here. Also almost new to medieval crossbows. I´m a proud owner of a NWA crossbow. Geezer provides the best customer service and also knows what he says. Lightly, I have seen your work and it´s amazing. I don´t buy your words and I think you have experience in crossbow making.
