suggestions Grabbing a Bow or a Crossbow.

10 posts in this topic

Hey all,

So, I am looking to grab one of those Bows or Crossbows. I have a limited budget. Not exceeding 60 USD. I have checked Amazon, but since I am a total noob in this category, I cant come up with anything.

So I was hoping someone here with actual knowledge of these things, could guide me. I would love a Crossbow, but I don't see one that fits nicely in this budget of mine. Nonetheless, if someone knows another site which has a world-wide delivery system, and lists a good Crossbow in the budget, I'd be happy to look into it. Bow is a totally cool alternative here. I wont mind it, given the tight budget and I can see some listed on Amazon with pretty good ratings in the budget, but then again, I don't know jack about them, so I am not finalizing anything here.

Help me out, please. Much appreciated

Regards...

$60 is going to get you a toy one.

Only thing I can suggest is pawn shops. You might be able to get a 2nd hand crossbow or something from there.

Okay lets take the crossbow out of the picture.

What about the Bow?

I have been reading this ones review and they seem to be satisfactory.

And this one too

"The Bear Archery Brave 3 Bow Set includes everything young archers need to get started in the sport of archery. Recommended for children aged eight years old and up"

Like Wildwayz said....$60 will get you a toy.

Those cheap ones are for kids and beginners shooting at targets that are, at most, 10m away. A 20lb draw length will give you a really slow velocity.

A true bow will easily set you back at least $400-500 for a bottom line bow.

Also depending on where you live, it might be illegal for you to possess a crossbow. Where I live, it's only legal to have one if you're a handicapped hunter.

$400-$500 is a little high, you can get decent stuff in the $300-$400 range.

Here's a pretty good list of crossbow laws:

The thing is, this only applies to hunting - just owning the bow is not illegal in most of these states.

With a sight, arrow rest, and arrows?

The cheapest Mission bow (which is a quality beginners brand), is around the $300 range, and adding your accessories and arrows will tack on another $100-200.

Not a bad xbow. Top of the line? No. But for a newbie for $350 for a full kit is really nice. You're right in that its only 3 arrows, so that will add something.
