Stolen idea?

Unread postAuthor: lukemc » Tue May 15, 2007 8:02 pm

my friend told me today about this thing that you mount on your compound bow to shoot paintball. i looked it up:http://www.airowgun.com/paintball.php and instantly thought of this http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/6mm-crossbow-project-t7946.html
a coincidence? probably but still congrats jack on a very nice idea that could be bigger than you thought. by the way that paintball thing looks sweet

The press release is dated November 2006, I made mine in 1999 :wink:

Apparently there's a version that lets you fire 0.22 pellets too...

That's the thing about great ideas. You could have a fantastic, would changing idea, but someone else could have built it before you or had the resources to actually build it. I remember plenty of times I got a fantastic idea, couldn't build it or didn't follow through, and two years later, it's a product! That's just the way things go I guess.
