About a $1 gets your 15 arrows. No one paid attention to locals using it, but as soon as I sat down a crowd formed. Mocking me. Unfortunately I couldnt turn it around far enough to shoot any of them. A few phrases from my Chinese book of vulgar terms fixed that problem.
The first few arrows you line it up and aim it etc, then you realise you can just yank on the handle at great speed and it generally goes close enough to the target.
A very clever ancient weapon!
