I for one feel that perhaps a sticky for newbies at the top may help prevent damages to hobbyists like myself, especially children. At least some emphasis the dangers
Just a rant, I needed to get off my chest. I have since read where hobbyists are getting hurt in stores while trying out crossbows for the first time before buying them supposedly under proper supervision. I just don't feel there is enough awareness presented by the professional elite.
The old timers, including my friends, simply state "I'll bet you won't do that again." There right.
Please keep in mind some of us a are bit slower to learn than others. Help keep us stupid ones safer if possible.
Perhaps a warning like, "Keep your thumb and fingers out of the way of the strings, or it can cut them off".
