Personally, I wouldn't buy a barnett. I watched the hold ack mechanism that keeps the ow cocked SNAP on a bow that my Dad was hunting with... The bolt almost got him in the foot. Of course that was 10 or more years ago, but to this day, I will not even ouch a barnett crossbow. I hunt with a Horton Summit HD 150 with a red dot. Bought it at a pawn shop for 200 out the door. Bow season is a pretty good way off, my advice is bide your time and find a good deal on a Horton. Just my .02 worth!
There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.
