Q-Lab Arrows?

Post by Jacen Starslayer on Sun 15 Aug 2010 - 21:16

I was trying to think of interesting ways to employ Jay's Bow.

Besides the stereotypical Cyanide tipped arrow, what other possible nasty tricks can he fit into an arrow.

Fill a hollow Arrow's shaft with C4/Semtex and a miniaturized remote detonator?

Make notches in the shaft so that it whistles in flight?

Ideas?

You want your arrows to be silent, so f- the whistling notches.
Now, I remember my Viet Nam tech, certain demolition squads used explosive arrow heads to blow up small or weak structures or on conjunction with several, blow up something bigger. They contained TNT at the time and later upgraded to C4 with a nitroglycerin trigger.

There are poisoned arrows as to get that target that wont stay still with a couple of arrows to his butt.

Now you can get fancy with radio tracking arrows, get it impaled on a the enemy's vehicle and you can follow it home. But Arrows are for silent killings in my view and should be used as such.

Had a "whistling bullet" thread on a gun forum recently. Universally agreed that it was pointless. If you're shooting at someone, why worry about scaring/warning them?

Arrows are for silence. Sure, play with the tips for specific purposes, but sound should not factor in any further than "quiet as possible."

Expanding broadheads are always fun, IMO, wicked little bastards.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

I figured a noise making Arrow for a possible distraction. But you are right on the Whistling ones.

Maybe some sort of microdot aerosol, or a quieter gas delivery system?

Also, I reccomend Jay reads some Green Arrow

I say to just let Jay be fancy with them. Three at once arrow shooting, banks shots, etc.

And then have him be all cocky like, telling the girls "Can't do that with bullets can ya." Evil

Allison: No, but can you do a full gymkhana course while shooting targets in the midst of a full opposite-lock drift? Can you down a steel target the size of a playing card in the middle of a J-turn? Hmmmm?

Jay: (sulking) N-no...

Allison: That's okay, honey, I still love you. Say, there's still something the two of us can do together in a car... (she whispers into his ear with a sly smile)

Jay: Allison! We shouldn't!

Allison: It'll be totally worth it! Trust me!

SOON...

Jay: Yeeeeee-haaaaa!

A replica of The General Lee leaps into the air off of a dirt jump at the compound, Dixie horn full-blast, Jay leaning out the window with bow and arrow in hand. Taking aim, he lets a lit dynamite-tipped arrow fly--directly into Jean's CL 500.

SFX: Thwp--BKOOOM

Allison, behind the wheel of the '69 Charger, lands the behemoth cleanly, and Jay retreats into the cockpit as they speed away. Behind them, Jean comes running furiously out of the Section 2 building, Rico in tow.

Jean: Valentine! McDonnell! I'll have your hides for this! (He shakes his fist at the escaping General Lee) Y'all in a heap of trouble! (To Rico) Shake harder!

the Fratello shake their fists furiously to little avail.

Use an arrow to silently install a listening or tracking device on an enemy structure/vehicle. Can't do that with a bullet.

Hmmm...wonder what Kisk was watching on the television tonight (I confess...so was I).
Explanation: On Monday the 16th Top Gear on BBC America featured a stunt that involved crashing small caravan style motorhomes into eachother using cranes.

Brian & Priscilla are having lunch in the handler's private canteen...

Priscilla: Um, Brian, do you smell smoke?

Brian: I do. Fernando isn't grilling steaks until next Saturday...the Bomb Squad Girls aren't working on incendiaries this week...Avise always smokes outside...and Marisa is out on a mission with Elio.

Priscilla: Oh no...that can only mean...

Allison & Jay burst in, breathless from running.

Allison: Brian! We need to go to Tibet!

Jay: Us too, sis!

Priscilla: When, right now?

Jay: Well, before Jean shows up...so sometime in the next 5 minutes would be good.

Some handler's attention is drawn by a crowd of girl's behind the dorm, near Claes' garden. They walk over to investigate...

Rachel: (holding her S&W .45) Alright, just so we're clear; loser...that means you Kara...has to do the winner's geography homework for a week!

Kara: (holding her €5000 katana like a baseball bat) I'm not worried about that because you're gonna lose this bet!

Fernando: What the hell is going on here!?

Rico: Bullet baseball, sir! Rachel bet Kara that she can't split a bullet in mid-air, and Kara says she can!

Giuseppe: Why is Rachel wearing a blindfold?

Jay: Ummm...I don't really know. It just seemed kinda cooler that way.
