A shortbow is a military two-handed ranged weapon in the bow weapon group.[PH:219]

Loading a shortbow is a free action requiring the use of both hands. Small characters can wield a shortbow even though it is a two-handed weapon.

Bards, blackguards, cavaliers, fighters, rangers, and seekers are proficient with all military ranged weapons, including the shortbow. Warlords who select the Archer Warlord class feature gain proficiency with all military ranged weapons, including the shortbow. Elves gain proficiency with the shortbow as a racial trait.

Other classes and races do not have proficiency with the shortbow as a class or racial trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.
