After an idea from the recent photo/thread JB made, here is something I imagined, and low and behold, they exist and some look pretty wicked. :D I think if you made reload times slightly quicker than in the vid you'd be fine.

There are a couple pretty cool variation of this, and I personal feel this would be a pretty cool and interesting home-made stationary "turret" or even made into a trap w/ a trip-line or something of sorts. And when I say "turret" I'd see something like this as a "top tier/end game" type of weapon/trap to defend your "base". I feel this could/would be a pretty devastating weapon w/ just rocks and things... but launching propane tanks near zombies then shoot and blow them up... who knows???

Items Needed:

1 -Truck Leaf Spring
6 - Bolts
3 - Scrap Steel (Or Steel tubing or steel fence poles??)
2 - Bundles of Rope
1 - 1 Boat Winch or "Come-A-Long"

Tools Needed:

Welder and/or Torches
Crescent Wrench

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
Holy s**t.. If you walked through a door and that hit you.. god damn.. also goes pretty far outdoors could be used as artillery a couple of them with a quicker reload, you could also upgrade it to a pneumatic one with multiple barrels .. maybe that's going too far?

Edit: Nope...adding a belt feeder for the arrows is going too far :D.
