The repeating hand crossbow holds five crossbow bolts. As long as it holds bolts, you can reload it by pulling the reloading lever a free action. Loading a new case of 5 bolts is a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity.

You can shoot a hand crossbow with one hand at no penalty. You can shoot a hand crossbow with each hand, but you take a penalty on attack rolls as if attacking with two light weapons. The reloading lever of a repeating hand crossbow can be pulled with the opposite hand even if that hand is holding another hand crossbow with no penalty, provided the wielder can use his ring and pinky fingers and has a Strength score of 5 or more. The lever can also be pushed against another object, say the wielder's forearm, for example, to the same effect. In this manner, two repeating hand crossbows can be wielded at the same time, each offering multiple attacks per round.
