Well I finally went to the dr. to look at my shoulder and and he says I've torn something. :no: So much for shooting by bow at least for now. What type of crossbows do you guys recommend?

If money is non important I'd say a PSE TAC is probably the best IMO, and has built in cocking system, only down one might see maybe is you have to shoot bolts made for it because they are longer than the average crossbow.
Barnetts are about the biggest in name brand right now, I personally have a older Horton 150lbs straight limb I got at dicks sporting goods about 12 years ago at a right price, ( back then it was on sale and it was under 200) I been thinking of upgrading myself to a newer cam'ed crossbow.

I've come to the same problem, too many years of concrete work have finally caught up to me, I can still draw mine but it is really hard. A while back Natchez Shooters Supply had Barnett Quad 400's for $318, they are a little more now, but I test shot one and it seemed fine to me and I could cock it just fine with a $20 cocking rope. They come in a package with a 4 arrow quiver, 4 arrows, and a 4x-32mm scope. 345 fps, really fast! Way cheaper than a good compound these days!!

I'm a short gal so I'm wanting to find one with a shorter stock. I haven't looked at any on the stores yet but on the catalog pics it looks like the Barnett ghost might be good.

I kinda like the Barnett ghost 350 but hubby is voting on the ghost 400. is there really $400 worth of difference?

I have two friends that both own the Ghost 350, both are extremely happy with their choices.
I cannot say personally but I don't see how there could be 400 dollars worth of improvement from the 350 to the 400.
I enjoy saving a little money when I can so personally, I would choose the 350 and use the savings for a carry case, extra bolts, and other supplies that might come in handy.
Good Luck on whichever you choose. :thumbup:

I have a TenPoint and two Hortons. Both seem to be excellent products. I have on occasion, shot a Barnett and got along with it just fine. I also know the Excaliber is a quality product.
