A nice weapon, Todd.
Here is my own new toy, a Birthday / Xmas gift to myself. This is a Horton Scout 125. I almost hate to admit it, but I am a huge fan of the AMC program The Walkiing Dead
. I'd wanted a modern crossbow for a long time, and thought that having the same bow as the character Darryl Dixon would be cool. I came across a website about the guns used on the show by each character and details of how they are used in the program, flash bang replicas, etc. So, I ordered this one. Now no zombie is safe in my neighborhood, and the report from a centerfire cartiridge won't attrack an annoying swarm of the undead.
The bow pulls at 125 lbs, and shoots a 20" bolt / arrow at 250 fps. When I was sighting it in (on Xmas Eve, my actual birthday), I had to place the straw archery target on the ground and put my foot on it to get the bolts out, so it has some nice punch. The 25mm red dot sight is nice to have, too. The above shot group is my second one ever with this bow, shot from the bench. My first group was in the very top edge of the target, so you can't see the holes in the paper target. It took about two hours to get it sighted in.
