this ought to really get the anti Crossbow crowd stirred up if its approved for archery season Like it or not it seems likely that the Crosman "airbow" will be a legal weapon during Virginia's archery season this coming fall. Senate Bill 859 passed the committee last week with a 15-0 vote (all in favor). The Senate bill still has a ways to go but looks inevitable with this strong start. Two years ago the "airbow" became a legal weapon during firearms season. The patrons of the bill are hunters who feel that this is a good thing for hunters. They say it increases "opportunity" for hunters.
