    Wonder if it would be legal for hunting anywhere? Is it a bow / crosbow / or rifle?

    I would like to see the expression on face of the 1st game warden to find one in use during deer season (as long as it wasn't me using it).

    The states im somewhat familiar on hunting regs have a positive list of approved weapons. If your chosen device or method isnt listed its a no-go.

    Im not convinced it can drive an arrow weighing 10 times the normal weight of a 22 bullet half the speed of a 22lr round. I would need actual video chronoed proof of that from an independant source. Blanks just arent that powerful

    That was pretty sweet, but a little pricey for me.

    They are a bit off in their estimation of arrow speed from bows.

    Ben Pearson Stealth II does 340+ FPS...Pearson makes some mighty fine bows in Brewton, Alabama :)
    Low prices, high quality!!

    I only shoot Hoyt or Pearson bows in NFAA & IBO. Nothing else cuts the mustard.

    Lemme also point out that they weren't doing precision shooting, they were aiming at a BARN...
    with an arrow with No Fletching. To some of you, that means little.
    To an archer, we know that an arrow with no fletching can end up in a WIDE area.
    Sure as heck ain't gonna be precise...

    Here in VA, years ago, Game Wardens caught a guy using a 12 g to shoot arrows during bow season (reduced powder charge). Gunpowder residue on fletching. HE went to jail. Do not fool around with the Partridge Police or the Deer Deputies!
