    The folks over on the Armsandarmourforum are discussing goat's foot bows a la Padre island. http://www.armsandarmourforum.com/forum/index.php?/topic/1932-spanish-crossbow-padre-island-version/page__gopid__14420#entry14420

    Sergay Mityanin has made a nice one. Alexander Lemeshko has posted a link to these crossbows in Malta. http://www.tforum.info/forum/index.php?app=gallery&image=14319

    Mac, I went to that URL, but it told me I dont have permission to view the forum. And here I even took a shower this morning. Any suggestions?

    Did you try both links?

    The Armsandarmourforum requires membership to read their stuff, but link to the Russian language "T forum" should work fine. The "T forum" link is the one with the pics of the bows from Malta.

    The second like worked. I didnt see it, probably a client from hell causing me to be less than 100%. Thanks for the email, Mac. A nice case full of nice stuff there. A Spanish bow is on my short list of projects, after two or three others. Smile
