Ring Bow?

  1. I know a couple members have done ring shooters back in the day, has anyone done a ring slingbow? Just curious if this has been done yet, going to try to make one soon.

    i've never thought of that, let alone done that, but i really like this idea! i might just like it as much as my much used beer-opener ring! please post your attempt!

  3. I meant a finger ring slingbow like this. Sorry my drawing skills aren't the best and I used paint on a touchpad to draw this lol.

    now I understand but I don't think this is a good idea because of the amount of force you need for properly shoot arrows

  6. I'll have to show it to you when I get it finished, I think that when it's all done (it will have a support that screws in) it might surprise people how much weight I can tack on. I am hopeful anyway lol.

    40-50lbs of pull on a single finger sounds like a great way to break a finger.
    Maybe a brass knuckles style one...providing its high enough to not hit your own hand

  8. There is going to be a support that screws into the ring, but even without it I'd probably be ok, I can draw my 75 pound bow with my ring finger so I probably won't break anything. I should have this finished by tuesday or so, found a friend to weld it up for me, so I'll hopefully have pictures and maybe some vids of me shooting it up by then.

    It should work as I have seen someone shoot an arrow off of their knuckles with a bareback rig. Doing something with the bristles from a cheap paint brush for a rest might not be a bad idea.
  10. That was my thought too, it should certainly work. As for the toothbrush I am going to see how it functions without one first, I don't think I could claim it was a ring or necklace with much success if I epoxied a toothbrush onto it lol.
