The kest was a primitive sling-crossbow weapon developed by the Byrsa, to defend themselves against the Goa'uld who came to their planet hoping to claim new hosts. It only held a single kest bolt in it at any one time, and so, after it was fired, it would need to be reloaded immediately. (SG1: "Cor-ai")
