The dwarven pelletbow is a crossbowlike weapon that is loaded with and fires sling bullets rather than bolts.
A dwarven light pelletbow can be reloaded as a free action (allowing characters to attack with it multiple times in a round).
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 light 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 light crossbow also apply to a dwarven light pelletbow.
