How this is consistent with GURPS rules? How I should build character in realistic campaign to play someone like this?

Give him an extremely light bow, and have it only draw it part way do maybe 1d-4 (0.5) damage. use rapid fire from Martial arts.


(also a search for threads about archery and Lars, might give bit more context)

Such kind of thread seems to appears periodically. GURPS Martial Arts anwer this question (p. 119-120):

"Quick-shooting Bows

(...)At the GMs option, realistic archers can quick-shoot bows out of combat. There are real-life speed-shooting competitions, after all. Use the rules as written. Doing this under fire is cinematic, though apply an extra -4 to Bow and Fast-Draw rolls for this feat in combat in a realistic game."
