“THE PIONEER AIRBOW™ is an all-new category of big game weapon featuring full length arrows and full weight broadheads, all driven by air,” crosman.com proclaims. “Based on Benjamin’s proven American-made PCP platform, the Pioneer can be cocked with two fingers (and decocked just as easily), fires 8 shots in the same amount of time it takes to fire three from a crossbow, all at a blazing 450 FPS.” What the video above doesn’t really capture is just how fugly this thing is.

Holy shave my dog’s butt and make it walk backwards, Batman! The Crosman looks like the product of an unholy union of an FN-SCAR and a UTAS shotgun, complete with the world’s tallest scope mount. Although Crosman uses GLOCK-like capitalization for THE PIONEER AIRBOW, they deploy the word “gun” or “rifle” for its description exactly no times when describing it. Wonder why that is….
Crosman’s taking pre-orders for this, uh, thing, at $849 a pop. Want one?
