It's sort of bow like...

Postby PAarcher » Fri Feb 10, 2017 9:31 pm

I got to shoot one of these today at the Great American Outdoor Show. I guess it's sort of a bow/slingshot hybrid. No sights, no let off. You do have to use a release though. It was an absolute hoot to shoot. If I'd have had money in my pocket I'd have bought one. The rep said they can be taken comfortably up to the 40-50# range and that several people have taken deer with them.

Not a fan... That's one of the things on the agenda to legalize in BOW SEASON in Va. this upcoming year. The V.B.A. and most of our archery organizations are fighting it.

Why is that? It's not like shooting a crossbow.

The biggest reason is that it is now a bow. They tried to get sling shots shooting arrows legalized a couple years back and failed, so now they have retitled them "sling bows" in order to try and get them in.

Here is another version....

They do look like fun to play with, but could you imagine a car load of drunk Va. rednecks riding around some of our country roads with two guys armed with "slingbows" in the back seat. There would be arrows stuck everywhere and in everything!

Shoot. I think that might be an improvement for drunk Virginia rednecks!
