    Found this on Tid-Bit on another board. I think it is very important to raise awareness about these issues before an unsuspecting youngster/adult in the field, at a "youth shoot or shooting club" get seriously injured or killed because of said safety issues.

    Quote from the O/P...

    "Many of us know crossbow owners that don't visit any crossbow forums. If you know a Ten Point Crossbow owner please share this information with them. I have forwarded this to WNEP CH16 and PA Outdoor Life for my area of PA."

    I followed this thread on that other forum along with all the BS. that followed . BUT the most important issue is get the Information out to fellow shooters so no one gets hurt or worse !!!

    Better safe then sorry..........

    I does make you wonder if there really is a problem, aye? I know a lot of guys fiddle with their safty when bored, not that I, um, they, should ever do this! I have never had an issue with a safety, and I should just consider myself lucky, and more importantly, warned!! I think I'll monkey with my cell phone a bit more when I'm bored in the stand. :rolleyes:

    I do a lot of trigger jobs an never mess with the safety other than to clean . I preload my Excal triggers all the time on my range before target shooting to get the slack out an just push it off an never a problem. I never push it on an off after that or trust it

    I never change the sear engagement on a crossbow like I do on a rifle. Lots of pressure on the crossbow triggers an why most have slack an long sear engagement. I ,ve seen lots of rifles with to little sear engagement that will go off if you keep moving the safety on an off:eek: fine line between having a great trigger an a safe trigger an more so on a crossbow.

    Well... We were all playing in the "Sandbox" and I called another kid "Jello Face". Somebody reported the offence and I got 3 months in "Mutantville", this time... :(

    Was it the same one who called you a gun hunter, and sends offensive pm's to you? But yet does not get banned?

    He calls other kids names too and sends them nasty PM's, as well... The "Ignore Feature" doesn't even work with this kid on there. Almost like he talkin' to oneself! Hehehe!!! o_O
