Term used by weird/awkward people to describe a weapon known to the rest of the world as the bow. Just like a gun is not called a gun and bullet. it consists of a curved body, and has strings to store energy when pulled back to launch a long projectile typically with a head at fast speeds and potentially great accuracy. There are different types of bows including recurve, composite, and crossbows. Also kind of like saying eyeball instead of eye.
Person 1: Look out! He has a bow and arrow! Person 2: You mean a bow? Weirdo...
