Daughter Kelley gives it a shot and confirms Mom. This is really fun. Now, about all those yellow splats.
What a Blast!
There were many items at the Shot Show in February, interesting to write about, but the Bowtech Airow Gun stopped me in my tracks. It was one of those “I wish I had thought of that!” moments.
A paintball or .22 pellet gun you shoot with your bow! The wheels started turning and I began to think of all the fun we as a family could have, breathing new life into shooting practice, building confidence in our new shooters, family outings and games. How about a little lighthearted competition in camp after an unsuccessful day of hunting to brighten everyone’s spirit?
The Airow Gun, works two ways, either as a paintball gun or as a .22 pellet gun. I have the paintball version and judging by the yellow and pink spots all over my trees the whole family is having fun with it. Everyone can practice without losing or breaking expensive arrows.
The Airow Gun is fairly simple in design and with detailed instructions, easily mounted on many compound or recurve bows. It is sold as a set with the compact but mighty Diamond Edge bow from Bowtech, or separately to mount on your own bow. There are several optional accessories including a Weaver Rail Scope Mount designed for use with your favorite laser sight.
The Airow Gun does not need Co2 and has adjustable air pressure control to allow the paintballs to reach speeds from 260-300 fps.
Once you are finished shooting for the season, you can still have a great time with your bow and stay in practice for the coming year.
The Airow gun has a MSRP of $199.99 for the paintball unit or $229.99 for the .22 pellet unit.
