While not the strongest, there's no way you can miss if you fill the air with arrows.
The halfway shortbow is a masterwork shortbow which can be drawn and fired at an extraordinary rate, at the cost of damage. As a swift action you can activate its function for 1 round and double the number of attacks you make with it, but all damage is halved (including from effects such as bonus damage and enhancements). The biggest advantage is increasing the chances that you will hit something at all. This doubling of attacks does not account for bonus attacks from feats, abilities, or spells such as haste which are added afterwards.
