    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Maybe with a crossbow <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> (Thats illegal in Sweden... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_neutral.gif" alt="Neutral" longdesc="20"> ) By some reason Im not very fond of "regular" hunting. But when I get older I would like to go to some country where crossbow-hunting is legal and see how the crossbow-hunters do it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"></span>

    @failure<br><br>Well, i think going with someone on a hunting trip and then shoot a moose would be awesome! Sadly here in holland you can only hunt goose, ducks and rabbits. <br>My friend Rindert has also got a crossbow it is a 150 lbs and we already shoot about 10 starlings. in swedish is that a stare. Crossbows are a lot of fun! and i also like your pistol crossbows <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/herz.png" alt="I love you" longdesc="22"> . <br><br>Kind Regards,<br><br>Stefan

    @Stefan: Lucky you! Here in Sweden crossbows with an energy of more than ten joule are illegal without a special license (which takes a long time, and costs a lot of money to get. Plus I have to wait until Im 18 <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cry.gif" alt="Crying or Very sad" longdesc="11"> ). <br><br>And thanks for the compliment about the pistols <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    @failure<br><br>is it? are airsoft guns legal in your country? in my country they are only legal with a permit. almost everything that is fun is illegal in our country. Even slingshots <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br><br>Stefan

    @Stefan<br>Soft Airguns are legal if your 18+ or being supervised by a parent... Slingsots are only legal for some people, like Tivoli-people and such. For some reasons they are also legal if youre a farmer <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br>Airguns/pistol are allowed if they got less than 10 joule, same as for crossbows.<br>A wise man once said "Whats the Point of a toy if its not dangerous?" <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">
