airbow

Ok I'm little behind the press release but I just came across this ad for the Crossman Air Bow ...

wow!!! Ok it's illegal in Pa. ( for now) but I would defiantly get one it they pass the legislative bill out there to use air powered weapons for big game.

just think no strings to replace no limbs to fracture no crank and under $1,000.00 watching the youtube pretty amazing..

It should never be legalized and it is not a bow, it is an air rifle that shoots arrows. Calling it an air bow is an insult to everyone's intelligence. An idea whose time has not come.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

It is my opinion that they should be legal in Pa for species that air rifles are currently legal for. It should be regulated as an air rifle.

A sling shot that shoots a 150 grain core lokt is still a sling shot, not a rifle. An air rifle that shoots an arrow is still an air rifle, not a bow.

At one time there was a barrel kit for a 10/22 that fired an arrow using a blank round. Would that be legal for small game?

Sounds like they took the James Bond speargun of the '60's and adapted it to land.

Why are we fighting and tearing each other down? We need to be united to fight the anti's, not fighting among ourselves. People should be able to hunt with whatever weapon they want. It will attract new people to the sport, and that's what we really need.


Oh wait we're talking about the airbow!?! NOT IN MY BACKYARD

It is not a bow, or even close to a bow! It is a novelty.

I remember many people saying the same about compound crossbows when they started popping up.
