Personally, no. There are other sources of ranged attacks available, so stick with the melee.

This. It's about what you want your stuff to do, and for 1 point more than corsairs (2 if you give them shields), crossbowmen do it better in my view - they've got longer range & armour peircing.

Handbows just don't make sense to me for the above reason honestly - sure corsairs are more survivable, but why would you want to give them shooting weapons with such low range (to the point that they can be charged after shooting) and then watch them all die whilst doing very little damage? Might as well, in my view, just give them the 2 hand weapons then at least they've got more of a chance of taking something with them whilst waiting for one of our hammer units to flank charge...
