Don't know if y'all have ever heard of these but it's a new one on me, and pretty damn slick to if you ask me. Anyway I figured I'd post it for anyone who hadn't heard of them.
I'm impressed with the accuracy of that . Very cool.

I found this review quite likely ,

Style: Air Gun OnlyVerified Purchase
Ok, review time... Had this for about 3 months now. I am going to compare this air rifle to a Barnett C5 Wildcat crossbow.
Pro's: Arrow speed is crazy fast, there is a very noticeable difference in impact time at both 25 and 50 yards.
Pro: Arrow penetration is significantly better, but...this is a con as well due to the fact that it sinks the arrow up to (and sometimes and past) the fletchings in a standard YellowJacket target vs about half to three quarters of the crossbow.. I have ruined a half dozen arrows so far. I also had one arrow split on me so buy extra arrows.
Con: It is fairly loud, not gunshot loud, more like nailgun loud.
Con: pumping it up using the hand pump is a lot of work. I'm 53 y/o and by no means in bad shape but the hand pump causes me to stop shooting after a couple of refills.
Con: Consistency is difficult to obtain at 50 yds or so. Each shot lowers the air pressure, which changes the impact point. Additionally there seems to be a "sweet spot" for air pressure...too high or too low and arrow flight is erratic.
Summary: The jury is still out in my book. I am getting an electric pump to see if shooting without the hand pump makes it more fun. I also don't know if I would trust it on a 160+ inch whitetail. I'll keep you posted.

Update #1: Electric pump arrived. Went from 2500psi to 3400 psi in about a minute. Groups much tighter with 2 shots between refills. Gun pressure drops about 100 to 150 psi per shot. Tore the fletchings off another arrow due to target penetration. FYI I purchased the Simon-noger pump.

The old way of doing it is break over single shot .410 and stuff the arrow through then screw a broadhead on. Launch it with a shell that you’ve taken the shot out of. Be sure to seat the nock against the wad or card. Bingo!
