You cannot beat the crossbow craze, so you might as well join it. I hunted with the Cabela's crossbow this spring and fall and I'm still looking for a flaw. It comes with a great trigger, set at three pounds, includes a large finger guard, and it includes pouches that hold your cocking rope and string wax, and velcro right into the stock. It slings bolts at 395 fps. One feature I really like about the bow is that it comes with a pin that prevents the crossbow from firing and essentially works as redundancy to the safety. But, if you don't want to use it, there's a place to store it on the stock. The pin is a nice confidence booster for new crossbow hunters.
