Pistol Whip [General]
You know how to use your crossbow as a weapon, even when it's not loaded.
Prerequisite: BaB +1
Benefit: You can make attacks with the pommel or butt stock of a crossbow without penalty, including attacks of opportunity. An attack with the stock of a hand crossbow does the same damage as an unarmed attack as per normal for the attacker’s size, though the attacker is considered armed and the damage is lethal. Despite the name of the feat, an attacker can also make attacks with the stock of a light, heavy or repeating crossbow as well. Treat any such attack as a club sized for the attacker wielded in both hands, applying any damage from Strength appropriately. Any magical enhancement upon the crossbow does not apply to such attacks, though a masterwork bonus does apply. If the crossbow is loaded, there is a 50% chance that attacking in this manner sets it off harmlessly.
Special: A fighter may select Pistol Whip as one of his fighter bonus feats.
Special: If firearms are included in the campaign, this feat may be applied. Treat a pistol as a hand crossbow and a musket as a crossbow.
