  • Patent number: 9395142
    Abstract: A bow having a firing assembly that allows multiple projectiles in a clip to be selectively fired by a bow string, the bow having a bow string to produce the launching force to launch the projectiles along a projectile track, a firing assembly partially contained in the clip, the clip having an outer shell with a clip opening and a biased projectile follower to urge the projectiles toward the clip opening, the bow further including a receiver having a receiver opening to selectively operably receive the clip, the clip having a firing portion with at least one projection configured to support the bow string to fire the bow, the firing assembly further including a trigger assembly joined relative to the receiver and having a firing finger configured to urge the bow string off of the at least one projection and launch a projectile.

  • Patent number: 9341422
    Abstract: An archery bow for selectively firing multiple projectiles one at a time and having riser with first and second ends and limb arrangements fixed relative thereto with a bow string is joined therebetween, the bow having a drum housing and a selectively rotatable drum rotatably secured relative to the housing, the drum being rotatable about a drum axis and having a projectile openings circumferentially spaced about the drum axis, each of the projectile openings shaped to receive a projectile wherein a plurality of projectiles can be secured in the drum at one time, one of the projectile openings being in a firing position and supporting a projectile to be fired by the bow, the remaining projectile openings being spaced from the firing position to reduce interference with the projectile to be fired, the drum having a rotation mechanism to rotate each of openings into the firing position individually, the bow further including a shooting force mechanism to selectively propel the projectiles.

  • Patent number: 7891668
    Abstract: An archery target configured to absorb an impact of an associated arrow. The target having a stand having a top side and a bottom side and the bottom side including a support structure for supporting the archery target on an associated surface. The top side including a target rest shaped to receive a portion of an outer perimeter of a cylindrical target portion in shaped engagement. The target portion having a front side and a back side which extend between the outer perimeter and define a target depth and including a central core extending between front and back sides of the target. The core defining a target axis coaxial with the outer perimeter and the target portion further including at least one general planar sheet having side edges defining a sheet width that is generally equal to the target depth and a sheet surface between the side edges.

  • Patent number: 4842025
    Abstract: A wire twisting tool that includes a pair of jaws for clamping wire ends to be twisted and a removable spin drive unit for imparting rotation to the jaws to effect twisting of the wire ends. The spin drive unit is threadedly attached to a housing that encloses a spiral drive shaft. A pair of shaft engaging elements is mounted in a spaced apart relationship within a tubular carrier that forms part of the spin drive unit. The one end of the carrier is threaded and threadedly engages the housing. One of the shaft engaging elements is fixed to the carrier so that as the shaft is pulled through the drive element, rotation is imparted to the carrier. The other element slidably supports the drive shaft in order to maintain it in a predetermined alignment with respect to the carrier. In one embodiment, the support element is fixed to the carrier whereas in another embodiment it is free to move within the carrier to accommodate a change in pitch in the spiral shaft.

  • Patent number: 4635510
    Abstract: In a hand tool, a pair of elongated tool arms interconnected by a pivot, a torsion spring having legs which are connected respectively to the tool arms to bias the arms to an open position, and a plier lock element member having a spaced pair of eyes and a connecting bridge, with the plier element being slidably connected to the torsion spring legs such that the element is movable between locking and release positions. When in the lock position, the element is near the spring interconnection and acts to restrain the spring from biasing, and to inhibit relative work movement of the tool arms. When in the release position, the element selectively permits work performing movement of the arms about the pivot. One of the spring legs includes a working offset portion, and each of the spring legs includes a locking offset portion located near its connection with the associated one of the tool arms.
