Hardware store crossbow

I created this little crossbow for a Christmas gift exchange between some friends and I.

I am quite happy with the way it turned out. The limbs are made of 6 hacksaw blades stacked together and the trigger is spring loaded so it will return to position after being pulled. The bow will shoot approximately 30 m on a good shot, though not always very straight.
