    What crossbow should i buy???

    I'm thinking about buying a crossbow. Are there any that you don't have to manually pull back? Any recommendations would be great!

    I believe the only automated crossbow is the Parker Concorde. It cocks and uncocks itself by pushing a button which is powered by a CO2 cartridge. Given my injury level, if I were well off I'd buy it, but keep in mind its about $1,200.00.
    I bought a used off-brand one from someone on ebay for about $90. Its powerful enough to kill a deer at about 25-30 yards, but I don't know how long it will last. This is my first year hunting in over 20 years and haven't shot at a deer yet.

      I just bought the Parker Concorde. To heavy for me. Can't use, still brand new with cylinder and six bolts.

        TenPoint uses a hand cranking device mounted in the stock, it is called Acudraw. I am a C4,5,6 quad and can operate it fairly easy. There are some pretty good deals on ebay or watch Craigslist for used, new bows can get spendy. Good luck!

            Donnie: Dr. Xiao, What are your thoughts on a cure/combination therapy for SCI's??
            CG Xiao: Donnie, I don't want to disappoint you, but I think it is impossible to restore the continuity of the cord or "bridge the gap" in the near future, let's say: 50 years. Dr Wise Young has been my most respected scientist in SCI. He has dedicated and contributed to SCI no other can match.

              all the bows now i believe have a hand cranking device. horton, ten point, excalibur, parker, etc. i currently have an excalibur that i really like.

              if you have the $, skorpyd makes a great shooting bow but it's $1000.

                By the way the Concorde is for sale. Less than retail.
