    Bow - The Bike Wheel Bow

    My Comments: Thought this was different and made me think that sometimes I focus too much on knives and firearms for defense. What if I'm stuck without the firearms? This started to make me think 'outta da box' again.

    Only if you add 'Features' that "Don't call me Mame" Feinstien does not like. Afterall, she is a progressive left Senator who know exactly how you should act and live.

    Not until you add rails for optics and WML.

    Only if you take the wheel from a bike that has more than 10 speeds.

    I would recommend that everyone have a bow and practice with it. If things go bad, ammo will be worth more than gold.

    That would make it a "Tactical" bow, anyway if you use the correct shade of "Black".

    "Tac ti' call"
    A special shade of black which is very dark gray with a mat finish and subtle nearly imperceptible random patches of darker gray in a 'mossy' or 'oak' pattern.

    It's got a "forward" hand grip. Only a matter of time before the antis get wind of this and push for bans. I mean, we gotta consider the evil-doers and what they might possibly do with such firepower. They'll come riding up on a bicycle, and quicker 'n' you can say "Mud" you are under fire.

    Neat "trick" with commonplace items, though.

    Another bow you could make if ammo becomes unavailable. Not quite as easy as the bike wheel though.

    Actually, as was pointed out in a reply, it's not really a bow but a rather large weird sling-shot.
