Pump Action Bows - Tool or Toy?

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Pump Action Bows - Tool or Toy?

Post by JoergS » Wed Dec 25, 2019 3:27 am

Haven't been here for a while as I am super busy these days. My channel, the GoGun corporation that used to be my tiny little store and my ongoing battle against YouTube's unfair censoring/demonetization policies... I am literally working three jobs at once.

I have been working with repeating arrow shooters for several years now, and the "Adder" repeating crossbow will shake the market but good.

But I also kept working on repeating bows, started in the summer of 2017 with my "Instant Legolas" invention. Basically a box attached to the bow that holds a few arrows so you can draw out and shoot WITHOUT nocking the arrows manually. The real breakthrough came just recently, when I detached the box from the riser and made it sliding.



It is great fun on a small, light youth recurve but I also made one for a serious 70 lbs hunting compound.



I EVEN made one for super light "Mongolian" bows - shooting two arrows at a time!



OK this last one IS a gimmick but the first two are very legit weapons, I assure you.

The advantage of these over a repeating crossbow is the higher rate of fire PLUS the fact that you can keep them on target while you repeat. But also it makes it super easy to shoot a bow as you don't have to deal with those tricky release issues and such. There is almost no archers paradox too.

I am now trying to find a manufacturer who will bring on a mass produced version of this, but also I want to develop a high end, machined version for the top of the line compound bows (Hoyt, Bowtech and so on) - of course with bearings, laser sights and so on.

I think this might be a whole new category of bows and I hope it will be here to stay.

Glad to see you back. Brilliant work, as always!

That's amazing... Sign me up for one when you get picked up.

I think the big companies will be silly not to bring this to market.

Hey, if real companies don't, there's always getting a kid's version to Nerf...

I suggest switching from YouTube to Nebula. Pretty much all gun content, conservative political content and anything else that YT doesn't like is going up there. Eventually all that will be left on YT will be music pirates, drug dealers and terrorists , since all those guys are still monetized.

You won't make as much as you used to on YouTube but it is better than trying to talk to the world's most tone deaf company and deal with all their stupid off the cuff policies.
You go 'round and around it
You go over and under
I go through

Other platforms are suicide for creators like me. No recommendation engine, no monetization, no traffic.

I am now generating the family income through my store (gogun.de), but I need to maintain my reach. YouTube is the only option unfortunately.

The Adders have safely arrived in Hamburg at the port, now the container is unloaded for customs inspection. We will ship first, latest second week in January.

I await with baited breath. I have a cheap shot R9, and a 110 lb Cobra R9, plus a 90 lb limb. Buying the cobra was the only way I could get a 110lb limb. It was on clearance for $99.00 US. Lots of fun. Very accurate.
