Personally, I find Hand Crossbow a pain in the neck to type out, or even say. Been using the term Pistolbow with friends, and it seems like it's really catching on. I fully expect this to be the list of shortforms

Bow = bow
Crossbow = xbow
Hand Crossbow = Pistolbow = pbow

Lemme know if you plan on using this short-form, if you've already been using this short-form, or why you won't be.

Because pistolbow is more fluid to say in conversation than handbow.

Regardless if "you" decide to adapt this, a bunch of my friends already exclusively call them pistolbows, and naturally more and more people will begin using the term.

pistolbow is 3 syllables. Handbow is 2. how is that more fluid? And they aren't pistols. They're bows.

Really? That's a bit egocentric. Also putting "you" in quotations. Why?

I tried to maximize crit% chance to dominate with the generation effects, stacking as much hatred is vital, certainly because I dual handies...

...what, is that not gonna catch on?

For Hand Crossbow, I've called it hxbow. I guess you could just call it a hx though.

Lol'd irl.

Still better than OP's suggestion though. Pbow sounds like Tebow which makes me hate it. Maybe it's because I live in CO.
