pistol cross bow.. recommendations

Post by Yorkshire Andy » Sun Apr 22, 2018 2:27 pm

Any good anyone got any good links to a budget pistol crossbow for a bit of plinking in the garden ideally one that takes suction cup and pointy arrows so the kids can join in :)
If your roughing it, Your doing it wrong ;)

Lack of planning on your part doesn't make it an emergency on mine

I am not grumpy. I just don’t waste words.

We buy stuff from them, if you can find them get the all metal bolts as they fly truer, the plastic ones are OK I suppose but we find greater accuracy with the full metal ones, can't say what the half and half ones are like as we haven't tried them.
I have a strategy, it's not written in stone, nor can it be, this scenario has too many variables, everything about it depends on those variables, being specific is not possible.

I too have been thinking of getting a pistol crossbow for my kids. Teens. Like Andy would like some recommendations

That bit on the back is the cocking handle and it makes it really easy to cock, we go the other type first, the cheap one with the silver metal handle which you have to pull to cock, they work, take up less space but are inferior for sure.
