Ya know, an arguement can be made that Bows are chemically powered
projectile weapons.... :)
I assume, however, that he's referring to the acetylene devices since
Black Powder's not used in the SCA, at least not around here.

I'm curious as to which version is correct as well (not that I use the silly
things). Personally, I fail to see why the Society is so prosecution and
safety paranoid that Black Powder competitions aren't allowed, since they
*are* allowed in some other historical costume groups, but that's just
me. At this rate, it should be less than a few years before swords are
no longer allowed as part of garb...(*mutter*kvetch*gripe*)
Does that succintly enough express my opinion, Ma'am?
