  • Patent number: 4437449
    Abstract: An improved handbow for shooting arrows with substantially the same accuracy and power of longbows, wherein the handbow is defined by a frame that includes an opening through which the arrow is supported and shot with the assistance of an adjustable sight, an elastic bowstring secured at its opposite ends to the frame, and a pair of rearwardly projecting stops for terminating the forward movement of the bowstring and providing an even application of force to the arrow. The frame is preferably integrally molded from plastic material and includes a handle with associated grips which are grasped together by the hand of the archer to provide maximum comfort and stability during shooting, particularly when high-powered bowstrings are utilized.
