PVC Bow

Has anyone here made a PVC bow? I made one and it shoots well enough. I used 1/2" sch 40 pvc. I'll make another from 1" pipe. Its incredible the versatility of PVC pipe.

Any photos and videos? I believe Rambonucke had played with these: offtopic-related/topic24867.html

A pneumatic arrow launcher is a better use of PVC pipe in my view :)

I used to play with them as a kid, great fun :D

If you want to upgrade it a bit, get one of these:

You can remove the excess parts, it's a hardened steel fence post, makes pretty nice small bows.
