Post Crossbows - Different Types of Crossbows
Crossbows - Different Types of Crossbows
by: Grady McGraw

Crossbows are ancient weapons that were primary used during times of war. Although they required little skill or training to use, the bows proved to be powerful, useful, and deadly weapons. The invention of the gun caused the bow to fall out of fashion, but it is still used today as a hunting weapon. Hunters who use the bow as a weapon like it because it can be held in its loaded position longer than the other bows. The bow has a range of around 380 yards and is perfect for those who cannot efficiently pull back other bows. If you are interested in using this type of bow for hunting you have lots of choices.

The first 3 crossbows we are doing to explore are the recurve, compound, and pistol bows. The recurve crossbow is used by advanced archers and hunters. This type of crossbow has a long draw length which reduces hand shock and provides better acceleration. Because the bow is noisy when you fire it, you need a silencer when hunting. In addition, there is also great strain on the bow which can cause it to break. The compound crossbow is based a system of levers and pulleys. Although these bows are energy efficient, they require greater pressure from the user. The pistol crossbow is well liked because it is compact.

Other types of crossbows include the rifle, repeating, and bullet bows. The rifle crossbow is extremely sophisticated and advanced. This bow was designed to provide better aim and can come with features such as adjustable sights and foot pull. It can even hit a target from 250 feet away. The only drawback is that this powerful weapon requires a user who is just as strong. The repeating crossbow's design allows for the user to shoot faster than usual. With one swift motion you can string your bow, shoot, and launch projectiles. The bullet crossbow shoots bullet like projectiles made out of lead, clay, and stone. Some come equipped with a string slot and barrel while others come in a double string design.

Although crossbows are not being used to fight wars anymore, they make decent hunting weapons. When buying a crossbow it is important to keep in mind that not all crossbows are created equal. They come in different shapes, sizes, and of course, types. In addition, each bow also varies when it comes to the amount of energy and strength required by the user. Before buying a bow, it is important to keep these things in mind. If you don't you probably won't perform well when hunting or enjoy using your bow. Happy hunting.
