    A SHOULDER REST?? That's the cocking arm!! Sort your info out B 4 you post these mr...

    Hey, I enjoy your site very much. It's informative and has easy to follow instructions. I look forward to future projects. Most any items you or anyone needs can be found on eBay. Start a search and if the items you want doesn't pop up right away, use the advance search. If nothing, save your search, checking back every week or so. The exact item will soon come up for auction. eBay has never failed me. I have used them for over 13 years. Thank you.

    so many guesses on here without testing the thing first.

    I have tested most p.xbows and the 80lb self loading is the very best..they have many brand names on these depending whos selling them but if you type in "self loading 80lb you cant go wrong.

    one fifty lbs. its a law in most states you can't hunt with a cross bow unless your handicapped and cant pull the string back on a normal bow (so break yourarm in the preseason) ;-)

    I live in NY and I believe that this is the law here as well. Last year my grandfather was thinking of getting one, as he was beginning to have trouble pulling back his bow (he walks with a walker but still loves to hunt!), and I remember him saying something about the law stating that you need to be handicapped in order for it to be legal to hunt with.

    Really? I thought some states allow crossbows in the rifle season....

    If you have to ask that, then you probably have a long way to go before actually killing a deer. Your state has laws regulating what weapons can be used on deer and in what seasons. One of the easier ways of finding these out would probably be through the Game Warden's office.

     i have the cobra crossbow pistol and i love it.
