    Be Adaptive Equipment

    Has anyone heard about them or used any of their setups? I'm interested in their High Quad setup. https://www.beadaptive.com/products.html

    I checked theirs out back when I decided to go hunting again. The price was a put off and I also wanted to do as much as I could, so I designed my own. I have a heavy metal plate that sits under my cushion that has a slot where the vertical bar goes into and locks. My gun and crossbow are able to move side to side and pitch up and down by how I move my head.

    At the end of the video, you can see how I control the bow with my head/mouth.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    By the way, mine was built for less than $100 in materials.

    That is awesome! Do you use the same setup for shooting your gun? Do you have any pictures of your setup? I like your price much better than theirs.

    Here is a video of me shooting my gun. I was using a toggle switch in the video which caused my shots to go to the left. I have since switched to an air pressure switch to shoot the gun now.

    I will see if I can find my photos of each piece. It is extremely basic but works well.


    Here are the pictures:

    Thanks for the pictures. That is a very cool setup. Did you come up with the setup? Who helped you put it together?

    Me and my dad bounced ideas back and forth, then I would draw it out on the computer and he would build it. He's a jack of all trades and I like to design so we work well together. I did base part of the design on the be adaptive model but changed it so that I could do as much of the "control" myself.

    Our first design was over-thought out and also was made for a 12 gauge. The 12 gauge was NOT designed to be shot with your mouth. lol

    Do you have a rifle in mind for use with this mount?

    I would not recommend using it with a 12 gauge lol. I can only imagine. I just started thinking about it but possibly an AR15. I might want a pistol also. With the be adaptive setup I could use any rifle or pistol. I also like their 3.5in screen with the scope.

    An AR shooting .223 would be even easier to shoot than my SKS 7.62x39. I wanted a traditional hunting rifle but the cost was double the SKS.

    If you have the funds, go get it and have fun. You might look into digital hunting/rifle scopes as well.
    Some you can connect to a screen, others bluetooth to your phone.

    When I first decided to hunt again, I worried about my aim range so we designed and built a wheelchair sized "lazy-susan" device that my dad could swivel me around on by pushing with his foot. It worked but was impractical because of its weight. It would've been ideal for a fixed blind with a roof.

    I wouldn't be hunting just shooting at the range. Be adaptive offers a SCS Scope Camera System. Definitely something I am going to check into.

    If you're just going to target shoot, I would go with a 22. But that's just me.
    20 cents a shot for .223 versus 5 cents a shot for .22... I'm a frugal bastard.
    Also much quieter and less recoil.
