Trade my ruger P90 that I only paid $325 for and sticker on bow says $689.99 + all the extra stuff I got with it. got a dozen carbon arrows,quiver, cocking rope, string wax and a dozen practice points. It a Barnett predator. 175 lb pull at 375 fps and 125# of kenitic energy. scope has 5 comp. cross hairs. stock is adjustable in length and check riser as well.

Sounds like a good deal P series is the only Ruger I would get rid of
Had a P90 also Nicknamed it the brick with my small hands i was better off thorwing it to try & hit something then shoot it. sold it now I have the SR1911 & it is my baby I still sleep with it at night LOL
Good luck with the Xbow sounds & looks like a kicking weapon

Nice package! My buddy in Mich had to go to a crossbow also. He got a Excalibur 360 or 380??? Their new compact bow. His shoulders are both mush now and can't pull 20 lbs. I'll probably have to load his crossbow for him

waited to the last minute, but I got it sited in today. Walked it right into the nose hole. shes ready to go out to 50yds. Had to adjust the cheek riser up a bit and adjust the stock out about 1.25" to get eye relief correct. I have the cocking rope but still a bear to pull at 175lb and the length you have to pull.
