@PsyChuan it's a crossbow; I can pick it up! I just had it on a sawhorse so I could film it

@Satsuma yeah doesn't feel *great,* but a distinct learning experience

@jacethechicken Oh you were using a sawhorse to balance it. I thought you built a fucking ballista at first.

@jacethechicken YOU BUILT A BALLISTA??! that's my favourite quarantine project I've seen anywhere thus far

@Ethancdavenport technically just a crossbow -- it's just sitting on a sawhorse so I can film the shot -- but essentially, yeah lmfao

@CornishRepublicanArmy technically just a crossbow, it's not attached to the sawhorse I was just resting it there so I could film it. but basically, yeah!
