Airow Gun

Ive been thinking about buying an airow gun and I have a question. Is there much a difference between the trajectory and flight pattern of the airow gun and a compound bow of the same weight and pull length? I was wondering cause I was once big into archery. And it came so naturally to me. So if they are similar that would be perfect.
Also anything else you would like to tell me about it I would be gratefull. Theres so little information about it.
Thanks.

Well, consider that the ball will travel according to whatever path it normally would at the velocity you set the thing to. You'll need to grow accustomed to any new gun you purchase, the Airow gun should be no different.

K, thanks. What would I need to attach this to a bow besides the one offered?

I believe they mount very simply like standard bow hardware.

the mount attaches just like you would attach a sight(I believe) to the bow
I haven't seen one in a while, though I remember their site talking about how it attaches and works....

Recurve Bow

I have Q can you use a recurve bow with the bow gun? Or do you need a compound bow? I have a kick *** recurve bow and I would like to avoid buying a compound bow, I don't like them much.

I just got one about 3 months ago and i love it, i would suggest that you stick to compound bows because you need every Fps you can get out of it. If you know archery then the feelings really natural for you. but see as i pull mine 50 pounds at 26" its only shooting around 215 -220. I can honestly say that i have more fun getting 1 kill with this than 10 with a regular gun. Im about to mount mine to a mathews solocam and increase to around 60" at 27 and im sure it will shoot faster. going from 45 to 50 it increased from 180 to 220. the trajectory is not as flat as an arrows but flatter then shooting my long bow.

the airow gun will fit any bow with the universal threads and fittings. some recurves have these threads but they are set in and glued and not machined in like on the compound bows so the actual mounting probably wouldnt be as sturdy on a recurve as with on a compound. ive never used the airow gun myself, but i did my fare share of research and they had some for sale at target world (gun store)
