    I'm finally old enough to purchase a firearm but I've decided against throwing away $500 dollars in fees and applications when I'm more than likely going to be denied a purchase permit anyway. I'm thinking a cross-bow might satisfy my trigger lust until I move out of this hellhole.

    Anyone have suggestions on a "starter" model under $200? The sporting goods stores here don't carry them, so my only requirement is that it has to be available only,

    yea about a year ago; and suprisingly the only thing that even mentions bows of any type is some garbage about foriegners using them for hunting that didn't apply to me...

    I think they were too busy coming up with "gun crime" commercials to remember them..

    There's not much to hunt in the vast wilderness of Brooklyn. This will be strictly for target practice... :o

    Cross bow isn't going to do much against a gun

    see above.. I won't be walking through a bronx subway station with it at the ready... This will be strictly for accuracy training and target practice... and perhaps stealth offensive strikes in the event of zombie outbreak :o.


    I will not, reapeat not, be using a crossbow for self defense.

    Maybe you could just get real good with a slingshot first?

    Actually not such a bad idea. There are some really good slingshots on the market nowadays. Mine was just a stick shaped like a "Y", with a piece of car inner tube attached to it.

    You could learn some good aiming skills that way...plus it sounds like a lot of fun with the right ammo.

    get a nice bow. plus in the event of a zombie outbreak the rate of fire of a bow is fast than a cross bow. IF you have to i know bud k sells cheap ones. get a nice recurve or a composite FTW
