    I guess you haven't seen the PSE TAC-15 crossbow. It is a crossbow upper for your AR 15.

    I did see that one. :) Not sure if it actually counts as a firearm though.

    An AR that requires three black powder charges, a bullet, and spent casing ... all before it'll shoot. Hm. "Primitive" sounds like a good word.

    Does that now classify this AR-15 as other than an assault rifle? Isn't that what the libs say 2A was referring to, black powder muskets.

    What was the purpose of turning a semi-automatic rifle into a single shot musket?

    Black powder is in keeping with the "black" theme. It's bound to be tactical.

    Okay, the crossbow mod made a little sense in a sheer goofing around way. This thing...someone needs to fire their concept guy.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I guess it was a .50 beowulf upper?

    Blackpowder hunting is fun. Even better if it is a platform you already enjoy.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    Probably just to show that it can be done...I wouldn't have thought so.

    No, I think we now see how scary black powder rifles are. Surely 2A does not cover such advancements as black powder firearms.

    I guess I don't really understand how that would work from a functionality standpoint. If the firing pin his hitting the primer in the casing, would it really be able to light the powder that's like 3inches away in the barrel?
