    Your crossbow looks good.  If I may make suggestions, you may be sorry the ends of the prod are pointed, and steel cable makes the worst possible bowstring.  It's heavy, robs you of power and will stretch with use till it's no longer shootable.  Geezer.

    I agree with the Geezer, being one myself. I see the same thing as he did. Looks cool but, if that thing ever  broke , look out. That is  actually quite common. It's a bit un nerving  to have this come apart as your face is close to it. I would bet , with the metal runway, she's a tad on the noisey side.I would trust the metal runway, even if noisey. I like the over all machine . Could be deadly  for sure. After all that's what most of these are made for . You want to kill a zombie or ----maybe a deer to eat. I really like that fact that you ---   Posted this, it shows pride. That's what we are all about .
