Woodworking meets gunsmithing

I found these following a link on Make Magazine's website...

A homemade, marble-shooting crossbow (powerful enough to penetrate thin plywood):

...another, more conventional (fires wood bolts) crossbow:
http://woodgears.ca/crossbow/home_made.html

...a marble-shooting airgun that can penetrate 1/2" plywood:

Neat stuff, but I didn't care for the last line in the airgun article:
"I'm not a gun advocate, and I see no reason why somebody living in the city should have anything more than an airgun."
