This exotic weapon is common among rogues and others who favor stealth over power. You can draw a hand crossbow back by hand. Loading a hand crossbow is a move-equivalent action that provokes attacks of opportunity. You can shoot, but not load, a hand crossbow with one hand at no penalty, but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if attacking with two light weapons (see Two weapon fighting).
