New Crossbow.

Well, I ordered a crossbow yesterday.
My right shoulder is about shot making shooting my compound a very unpleasant experience.
I've managed to shoot it the last couple years but decided to just buy one and try it out.
I figured what the heck, everyone else is doing it so I should too. :D
I went with the Killer Instinct Ripper 415.
Supposed to shoot 415 fps with a sub 1" group at 80 yards, and at $400 seemed like a good deal.
I know I'd never attempt an 80 yard shot but, neat if the bow can do it.

I'll be looking for a target next.

    I've never shot a crossbow. In the bow hunting only counties of southern WV where I live you must have a medical disability and a permit from the DNR to use one. Ky has a crossbow season and some hunters I know do have a crossbow for this season and they seem to like them very well. I wish you the best of luck and post a pic if you get a deer.

    Received it today.
    I got it put together and took it to the farm to site it in.
    It's dialed in at 20 yards now.
    Tomorrow I'll see what I can do at 30.
    I do know not to shoot at the same spot.
    This thing is deadly accurate.
    Fast as all get out too.
