The Legolas System....
« on: September 10, 2020, 03:43:40 PM »
Well, the BOW is traditional, and the attachment COULD have been made in medieval times.  I pulled this from the Traditional Archery forum:



Hope you enjoy it!

That's pretty interesting...

I do wonder,,, how long it takes to reload the 5 arrows? That should have been something they should have touched on and maybe they will in another video?

Right!  I was wondering how they loaded the arrows also.

I have read numerous mentions of "getting into the bow".  I think the archer demonstrates this with the way he wields theses heavy bows; at least, that is what I envision is meant by the term.

This system was created by a crazy German guy. He has a channel on youtube, the slingshot channel.
Here is the video of his first prototype.



Here is a video of a commercial version with all the latest features.

Been going over this "Repeater" Bow & Arrow setup in my mind, and I'm just not sure I see a real practical use for it other then if you live somewhere where it's the only thing you're allowed for self defense.

It's interesting, no doubt about it.

They've mentioned "second shot" while hunting (which in my own experience) when I miss, that's it - that four legged critter is gone! Of course I don't hunt from a tree stand or hunting blind.

Also it kind'a makes me wonder what kind of regulations the government will put on it? If you carry 1 or more arrows in the "magazine" for lack of a better word, will it be considered a "loaded weapon" or not?

Will it even be allowed in the Archery hunting seasons since it's a multi shot repeater instead of a single shot arrow thrower???

Just not real sure what to make of it???

The one thing I do know,,, I'm not going to buy one, as I have no use for it even as a novelty item. I like to take my time and send those ol' arrows down range at my own pace like I've been doing for years.

 Im sure its fun but If it holds the bow at full draw then ya cant use it in Idaho w/o a special permit.
 I had 3 shots at a really nice buck once, the saving grace was that the recurve was silent at draw, silent at release and silent at reloading.
 it wasn't until my third miss that I hit a pile of brush behind him that he bolted.   
 cant imagine I would had more than one shot with that thing.
 gotta be heavy to carry around too.  like a vertical crossbow.
 One shot , one kill ( or miss)  thats for me.

What I would need along with the multi-arrow capability is a very quiet, battery powered,  electric motor thingy to draw the string back for me so I just have to press the trigger.   ;)
The trouble with doing things right the first time is no one realizes how hard it was.
Often, however, the following is more applicable.
I stand corrected, a position somewhat painful to achieve, but once there, is quite satisfying.
