Short Bow is found in the very first room on level three. You literally can not miss it, it has a torch right next it (it's in a barred room accessed by some loose rocks).
There's also a sling (uses rocks) on floor 2.
By the way, the end of this game really sucks. The last few floors are just kind of thrown on, and the boss fight (yeah it ends with a boss fight) is stupendously bad.
Damn, I didn't find the sling. I'd go back up and get it, but I really don't need it now though, I've got about a dozen throwing starts and knives, and one of my rogues can attack with daggers from the back row now. I kind of wish they'd randomize the weapons and/or locations they appear. I know the old school RPGs didn't do that, but it would make things different if you play it again since once you know what items are where, you can plan your party to take advantage what you come across.
BTW, has the patch gone out on Steam yet? Mine didn't patch when I started it. Steam updated and I restarted Steam, but still no patch to Grimrock.
