As soon as I saw the “airbow” I thought, here we go again. 

Before long someone will invent a way to push a lead conical with smokeless powder in a cartridge.

I don’t think it would be legal in many states. The industry will get behind it and make all kinds of claims to get laws changed so they can sell more stuff. Oh, and the industry will say that the public demands it. 

One of the repercussions if a push is made to make this legal during archery seasons, will be to reignite the battle against crossbows in a few places and the crossbow crowd fought a dozen years to expand there tool’s acceptance. 

I would’t care at all if this were considered a firearm and allowed during centerfire or shotgun slug seasons.
