Posting this mostly so I can refer back to it later...

There is this German inventor (Joerg Sprave) who is inventing some nifty devices to turn archery bows into semi-auto rifles (sort of). He's got an entertaining YouTube channel and apparently has gotten the attention of some industry manufacturers.

I love how he chuckles whenever he fires the thing

loosing 10 arrows is all well and good if its into a big archery target but I recall as kids with proper longbows how expensive the arrows were and how important it was to recover the arrow.
I guess these modern bolts being used are not without cost but have no idea what a couple of hundred of em might cost .......
