Crossbow tech has reached a zenith

Recommended Posts

I do not recall any posts on this if so pardon the step on toes.

Crossbow tech has reached a zenith, this places a crossbow into a realistic survival scenario accurate enough to be considered as a sub minute of angle or MOA @ 100 yard weapon. below is a link to the youtube video below that is the company website.

Cross bows are nice & powerfull, in a survival situation they are less than ideal to have in my books. Even compound bows are not ideal.

The best bows to have in a survival situation would be long & recurve bows.

If the cams, wires or string breaks your SOL .

One would need a special machine to restring a cross & compound bow, all the best fixing them in the woods or griddown situation.

A simple bow without all the added weight of cams & do dads on it, is way better. The cost of owning a simple bow is $300 or less vs cross bows & compound bows your looking at about $700-800 starting point. For a half decent bow.

Don’t own any cross bows, but have in my household 5 compound bowtech bows in the $800- 1,400 range, for each bow, some Japanese long bows & recurve  bows.

Another thing I can release more arrows faster than a cross bow or compound bow , something like 3 to 1 with a long or recurve bow.

That said, a takedown recurve bow is ideal when all hell breaks out in a SHTF situation.

My 2 pennies,for all its worth.

i have a crossbow and a recurve and a compound but i've only had 12 lessons with a longbow so i couldn't tell you one way or the other which is best accept for the recurve has less moving parts so would be more ideal in a SHTF scenario.

    • here is the survival coupons codes to get a amazing material of survival struggling 
    • 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. 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: 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!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • 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.
