I bought an Excalibur about a month ago -- actually my wife bought it as an anniversary present. I've been bow hunting for 25+ years and had never even shot a crossbow. I love it! Wish I'd bought one sooner.
Mine is the Axiom -- not a high end xbow, but very pleased for the money. The only knock I have is the width of the bow, I've gotten used to it.
I enjoy handguns and I really like shotguns,...but I love rifles!
