I just joined this forum. I have been an archer since about 1968 and a crossbow archer for the past 14 years. My first crossbow was a ten point; next I went to an Excalibur. Now I am shooting a Barnett. I like all three but especially like the barnett. It works well from my fully enclosed blind, a buck palace from ******* blinds. At my age the Barnett and buck palace are a great combination.
