I'm pretty sure I'm the first to do this, and the results are incredible. Here's the link for the picture.

So what did I do? I took a real life bow, attatched PVC piping, and fabricating a plunger attached to the string. It's insane. Ranges go around 180+ feet. Not lying. In fact, the bow string broke on me, and as soon as I replace it I'll get pictures up. Don't lock this Talio, just wait.

You should eh... get those pictures up in the next 24 hours or I'm gonna call bullshit. Besides, real bows can be quite dangerous dude.

Why the hell would I lie about ranges? It's a real, hunting bow. 180 feet is the range I'm getting, get over yourself.

I am still not believin 180+ with a 45 degree angle. Maybe with like wind, and arrows, but not with tiny Nerf darts.

To his defence however, some people(bob) have stressed that bow powered blasters can be dangerously powerful, and kane admitted that he can make his Aabow dangerously powerful with slugs. So his ranges still be possible. But looking at the picture, the PT (I think?) looks pretty small.

The bow is about 3.5 feet tall when strung, the plunger rod is 1.25 feet long. I'm not sure how much PSI the bow holds, although it is pretty strong.

What, the goal is to not have a nerf gun to fire farther? Excuse me. I'm not the one who puts lead weights into modified darts and fires them at people. A rubber dart, even fired at this velocity, is not going to hurt. What the hell do I have to do? Make something that fires exactly x feet and x fps?

Theres the point where a nerf gun becomes too powerful to be safe to use in nerf wars, And using stock darts for a bow like this probably wouldm't be possible, since The power would cause the darts to spin.

If you don't care, then why did you post the topic? If those ranges are real, how exactly are you getting the string attached to a PT without uneven advancement, therefore killing the seal? (unrelated: lakewoodz, check your pms. i see you on there.)

Dude, it's a bow. Meant for Killing things. And you made it do what? Fire a "safe" foam projectile at someone? Not the brightest move man, that could actually cause some major harm dude. For example, a freak string snapping occurance could easily damage you, and firing it at someone's chest could injure their eyes, given the innacuracy of a nerf dart. Try it on some of the nerf glasses bro, and see what kind of harm it'll do to the glasses.

To be fair here, arrows are made to kill things, not bows specifically. The original Nerf Bow N' Arrow worked on similar principles as this (except it was spring-powered rather than string-powered, though the difference is negligible, really) and it was safe enough to use.

I don't particularly see this as being a viable, useful Nerf weapon, but let's be realistic here. Suddenly it's okay to make a singled Titan or something that can hit over a hundred feet, but not this? It's not like he's firing darts out of something with gunpowder or any other combustible.
