That's pretty interesting.  The name is kind of funny though.  "Airbow", but there is no bow.  That's what's good about it.  No limbs to get in the way packing it.  I want!  Gary

Great idea. I wonder how many decades it will take before it is legal to use in New York State.

I just typed a pretty long response to maple flats but figured it belonged in restricted topics so I deleted the whole thing...

Thanks for sharing that, Goat.  Seems like a heck of an idea.

  Looks neat but would not be legal for archery season in PA, the rules specify that the energy must be stored in a bent limb with or without wheels. Might be legal in regular gun seasons.

Looks like a perfect fit to a alternate method season, as well as gun season,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Six hits on a buck at 120 yards with a mountain howitzer.  How cool!  :laugh:
