i don't hunt (don't have the stomach for killing something that's never done harm or presents a threat to me or my family) but i'm getting a pistol crossbow this january that i plan to take range shooting. it's all-fiberglass construction (only weighs 4 pounds) has an 80 pound draw weight, auto cocking lever and an initial velocity of 210 fps (more than enough to score a lethal or debilitating hit at self-defense range up to 50 feet) the best part is that the channel is dual-function and can shoot traditional bolts, but also can be equipped with a pouch on the string to shoot steal bearings, making it both a crossbow and a tactical slingshot.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
