Default Cross Bow Decision Time

Well, I went to my bow pro and looked at the cross bows.

Of course the best of the lot caught my eye with the way you can actually load and unload without flinging a bolt.

Very heavy but cross bow seems to all be heavy.

For Cross Bow, Case, Bolts, scope it is $1,500 before tax.

I am thinking about getting it..............

I like my Horton, personally.Choosing a crossbow is like choosing a truck,gun or any othe large purchase.Look for what features you want and if its within your price range get it.

I saw a pile of them in the send back to the manufacturer at Cabelas in Hamburg, PA. Seems they have a propensity to blow out. Not sure if it is operator error or product defect. Thanks anyway.

How many shots can you put through it before changing the string/cables etc?
