    OK, we all know that front heavy bolts need no fletching for a straight flight.

    What if...

    I'd have to guess that the speed of impact would be too great for the chainsaw to do anything. the chain wouldn't have moved very far in the time taken to penetrate the target. It would be ugly as hell if it got stuck inside the target but beyond that it's just a blunt spear.

    Edit:
    ('m guessing you were trimming a branch way up in a tree and didn't feel like climbing)

    True, it will be ineffective and awkward. Expensive as well, as the "ammo" is not likely going to survive more than a couple of shots, best case.

    But still... come on, I will be launching a chain saw! Hahahahahahahaaaaaa...

    Make sure that you use poison tipped chain, just in case.

    Um . . . An electric chainsaw? I'd just put a 50mm hollowpoint on the shaft and be done with it.
