No really. It's half an AR-15. PSE's new creation, the Tac-15. Bow stock "upper" accepts an AR-15 lower. Advertised speed over 400fps Twisted Evil

That thing is SWEEEET. I love the video and that they included a winding mechanism with the receiver. certainly gives a AR-15 owner some options for hunting.

At $1,250.99 retail...they can keep it for the military. I'll stick with my Horton and Oneida.

From what I can tell, that thing is huge, be a pain to hunt with.
After spending way too much on an AR, then spending just as much on an "attachment" seems ludicrous to me, but I just hunt with lowly Mossbergs, Hortons, Bear Bows and Marlins, what do I know about high end weapons!!

I heard you can shoot out to 100 yards with it. That would be a huge advantage over any bow on the market.

considering the desert stryker shoots 60yds all day long, i don't see it as impossible

It is not impossible for almost any modern bow to shoot 100 yards, but all the variables you have to deal with at ranges over 30 yards is where the problems begin. The effect that wind can have on an arrow over 30 yards (heck under it for that matter) is very extensive. Plus, the loss of kinetic energy would be extensive as well. YOu may hit the target, but much penetration isn't very likely.

I don't bow hunt to shoot 100 yards. I bow hunt to get close to the quarry and attempt to outsmart them. If I wanted to shoot at an animal at 100 yards, I would stick to firearms.

not trying to be smart but that's my point exactly...the loss of downrange energy at 100 yds would make a clean kill impossible...way too risky not to mention totally irresponsible ethically...food for the anti's!
