Ok you can shoot game with a catapult , pigeons rabbits ect with a bb or lead shot ( smooth rock??? ) You cannot shoot a rabbit or pigeon with an arrow from a sling shot . You cannot shoot a rabbit or pigeon with a bow (crossbow) and arrow . This is my question can you shoot a rabbit or a pigeon with the shoot tek rubber powered bow slingshot thing with a BB . if not why not ? can you shoot a rabbit or pigeon with the shoot tek ar 480 using a BB . it has the accuracy of an air gun and all the power needed to do the job . If not why not ? My thought is realy there is no difference between a bow and a catapult .It is just the ammo used . Start the abuse here................

I think by the time you work out the answer to your question, the rabbit or pigeon would of fecked off, I really like the starship catty,s but you can't hide them and if you sling them in the hedge the person your trying to hide it from just picks it up so really for me a catty is a small discreet fork and elastic set up that I can just throw in the hedge rather than try and work out the legal arguments with the local Bobby and not some of these laser sighted multi elasticated rifle type things the Chinese seem to be into, just get a rifle and a catty covered all angles

I thought crossbows were quiet enough without a silencer

It's not just catties.
The banning of archery equipment for hunting was a travesty of justice and prevented it being done wrong by zero.
Hand guns being banned is the same.

Catties are not defined in law so kind of neither illegal or legal.

It's like muzzle loading rifles, fine for target shooting in the eyes of the home office but a no go for hunting with and that is despite there not being any written legislation banning their use for hunting!
Ironically one can use a smooth bore to hunt with! Go figure.

Alot of these laws were/are heavily influenced by the anti hunting groups. Read: very little logic!

thanks that makes a bit more sense now . If it is possible to make sense of non sense . I guess hunting with a cattie if someone took offense they could get you for cruelty .

it may come under stabbing wild life  ..not allowed .. but one may be able to argue the need to maintain diversity of cultures in England Scotland and Wales , so today in the diverse country of Britain hunting with spears should be a must . It will create a rich diverse hunting culture mirroring that of the high st takeaway .

OMG another loop hole in the law . If one was to say a little prayer before throwing the spear and if the spear was aimed at the animals neck , how could any one object .
