the 80 lb crossbow pistol

Recommended Posts

for years ive been practicing with a mini crossbow pistol , target shooting in my garage, using the 5 pack of arrows that came with them. i broke a few arrows and at a swap meet found packets of twenty arrow and a new string included..ive run through a few strings in the past few years and broken the limbs of a couple of the steel bows only to replace them with my own bow made of heavier gauge steel at about 130 lbs . in my humble opinion, and judging from the damage ive done going through a 12 inch thick box of cardboard and burying the arrows in the outside wall these "Toys" are lethal ..no surprise there the original pistol at the 60 tp 80 lb pull was strong enough..now im building my own arrows for the pistol using thick bamboo skewers fitted with a razor tip broadhead..let me say the result is simply devastating..still i prefer my black powder rifle for big game, its nice to know i can take down something of size with one arrow from my modified crossbow pistol and home made arrows:D

jumbo, i can hit the target from 200 feet.. . its not hard to do once you dial it in, with the sights done correctly. heavier arrows need a little more height to hit accurately, but its a slamming weapon. i embedded one arrow made from a plastic coathanger into a 6 inch block of oak and it went nearly through it, using a field tip point. .. recently ive gone back to the 60 lbr to keep accurate . i kept shooting too high with the heavier version ..had to discern the correct angle for maximum penetration...)-> O

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!

    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
