    FIL is asking MIL for a crossbow for Christmas. She asked me for advice, but I know nil about them. Would anyone here have any advice? She wants to keep it $300 or under, so we aren't looking for anything that will sling a bolt through 3 inches of hardened steel or anything. Just need to know what brands are the best on a budget. Any input is appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Gadget

    I shoot an Excalibur. Not sure whether you are looking for a hunting or target set-up, but you might find something in your budget. Excalibur has a great warranty and customer service is top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase used, either.

    Ten Point makes an economy brand named Wicked Ridge. I have the Warrior model. Excellent crossbow. Get the premium package for better optics. Gander Mountain always seems to have them on sale. P.S. Ten Point is by far one of the best mfg's out there, awesome warranty!
