Joerg has been playing around with magazine fed bows for some time, his latest contraption is something else. I'd love to see "The Walking Dead" devote an episode with Daryl and Eugene maybe developing one of these . Smile

In this vid, Joerg gives a quick history of his iterations before showing his latest toy --

I remember watching many of his vids back in the day when it was only slingshot stuff - the inventiveness of this guy is simply amazing. His final version is pretty impressive!

Skip to 3:30 to see his latest refinement.
If you're even remotely interested in the subject, check this out. I think you'll find it time well spent.

Been watching Joerg on and off for some years. He really outdoes himself damn near everytime a new video is released.
