In fact, it looks exactly like a stirrupless Horton Vision with the buttstock chopped off, then painted all black. You can even see where they took the Horton badges off the sides of the stock.

Just one quick note for everybody's understanding. I know that these new shows are pretty cool and it seems like a good thing that crossbows are finally getting some attention and advertisement, but in reality many of us also know that it's a double edged sword and I'll explain why. For many years verticle bows and crossbows always flew below the radar screen of politicians and law enforcement agencies because they were considered to be much less dangerous than firearms. Firearms received a great deal of regulation and pressure from these same sources, so the control aspects were always tough on firearms and very laxed and easy on the archery industry.
The recent movies and TV shows that have been bringing high levels of attention to verticle and crossbows is also now bringing the attention of the unwanted to these same items. As you can imagine, it brings the attention of an unwanted element of the public to run out and buy these weapons thinking that what they see on TV or in the movies can easily be repeated in the execution of crimes. It also has the attention of law makers and public officials that are now realizing that these are dangerous weapons and therefore great deal of additional legislation is need for purchase and control purposes.
Although it appears like a good thing on the surface, in reality we might be much better off if there was a little less attention on TV so we might remain in the shadows and below the radar screens for as many more years as possible.

Sometimes I wonder if I think the way I do because I'm right or just because I'm getting older and more tempermental?
I do have very close friends that are still in the archery/crossbow business and they have ties to just about everyone in the country who's big in the business. I hear a great deal of insider information that is not for public consumption, but this often forms the basis for some of my statements.
My comments are not intended to upset anybody as much as to simply present another view that most people wouldn't normally consider. As they say, there's two sides to every story!

I don't see any worrisome trend with the regulation of crossbows in our state.
