The dwarven pelletbow is a crossbowlike weapon that is loaded with and fires sling bullets rather than bolts.
Normally a pelletbow takes two hands to operate, but you can shoot (but not load) a pelletbow with one hand by taking a –2 penalty on attack rolls. You can shoot one pelletbow with each hand, but you take a penalty on attack rolls for attacking with two one-handed weapons.
Feats and special abilities that don’t involve proficiency (that don’t depend on dealing piercing damage or firing bolts) that apply to a heavy crossbow also apply to a dwarven heavy pelletbow.
