He still wants to be in the woods and take our hunting trips. So, he figures he'll try a crossbow. But he isn't sure. Couple that with the drawn out process of workman's comp\ disability and having to sell their house, he's not looking to spend the money for a new crossbow. He's hoping to find a used one at a more reasonable price.
i don't know anything about crossbows. I thought I'd try networking. If anyone knows anyone with a decent used crossbow that they want want to sell or happens to see a deal, please PM me with the information and I'll pass it along to him.
I realize that a lot of guys have strong, negative reactions to crossbows.
I would appreciate it if you would refrain from expressing them here in case he looks at this thread. He's a great guy. He knows very well what he's lost. He's just trying to move forward as best he can.
Send me a PM if you want to bust my chops.
For what it's worth, crossbows been around for thousands of years. I think the folks way back when, had their longbows were pissed off when they saw a crossbow Warrior coming.
His normally dominant arm is the screwed up one. What models would be best to rock one-handed? I would imagine the kind with the brace that you step in to draw? Do they have them that fit a size 15 foot?
If anyone can give me some direction to pass along, please PM me.
