Noob is a a bit understated. Not only am I a noob to this forum, a noob to XBows but also a noob to bows of any kind. I am not even sure what bit me... but I just placed an order for a new TenPoint Pro Slider. Since, I don't hunt (not judging those who do it responsibly) , I suppose I will enjoy target practice. Something about the look of a XBow that screams mideval and I really like that.
