Yeah I agree, it makes me a little bit nervous. I offered to install a safety and he declined so hopefully they will both be super careful.

Re: Newest Build - Purpleheart 95cm Kid's first gun

Although I cannot say with absolute certainty that is what it is there for, all early Arbaletes have a finger grip position under the trigger finger guard which seems to be to allow you to twist the gun around without accidentally putting pressure on the trigger. Now experienced users don't do that, they are more in control of their fingers and grip pressure, however it could be a handy addition for kids to move their gun around and not reflexively pull on the trigger. A familiar phrase to me is “I didn’t really mean to pull the trigger” when a shaft shot by my shoulder from somewhere behind.

That is very pretty - I love the look of purple heart on spearguns.
