Action alert on HB2011 regarding Pre-Emption

Rep Mike Turzai has committed to move HB 2011. This bill strengthens pre-emption by providing for standing and compensation of expenses in the event a local law needs to be challenged that conflicts with State gun laws. Corbett said he will sign if it is put on his desk in the remaining 11 days left to the legislative session.

Parker makes nice crossbows. I skipped out tho and got the inferno fury from sportmans guide for $140. 175lb pull and roughly 240fps depend on the bolts. Not a bad deal for a backup to my Parker compound bow.

Crossbow is not "bow hunting". Its "Crossbow" hunting. Are you looking for another Xbow? IF so then you can find a bunch used here:http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=132

a crossbow is a type of bow, just like a long bow. but yes, im looking for a crossbow, most likely a recurve. i like excaliburs but they are expensive. any other good brands around $300?

Yup, I don't really post on there much anymore... if people thought this site was bad with the childish bickering and repeated question they haven't seen anything remotely like the gen pop forum on AT

Default Re: best crossbow for $300?

I had the same delema and asked the same question about a month ago,after lots of research on the net and input from guys on this forum,i ruled out the cheaper crossbow (under $300) i read lots of reviews and forum discusions about strings fraying and parts falling off scopes not being accurate for long, I was convinced to get a little better midrange cost crossbow,i read many places that a parker enforcer 160 was a good rig for the money,.........soooooo i went to dunkleburgers bowshop in stroudsburg and looked at one! it looked and felt good and is made in the USA and had a lifetime warrenty,after about 50 shots it still is deadly accurate and has not had even the smallest of issue's, it was $499 hope that helps
