Just because I don't want to sign up for another forum to simply post my review, maybe some will find this useful. Got a Hon Shuieh 150lb crossbow for Xmas. They make the same model with a variety of buttstock configurations. Mine has the metal hollow buttstock. Anyway, there are reviews on various sites that say this is junk. I disagree. For a hundred bucks you can't expect it to be as feature-laden as a $700 compound xbow. But it is decently made, powerful, and very accurate. It comes with a stringer, a scope, and 7 bolts. So far I'm only using the peep sights at 25 yards, and I'm routinely hitting the 3-inch dots on the target. It's just like smokers... you can spend $2K on a Lang, and really not produce much better food than on a CharGriller SP. Once you've spent enough to get decent tools, the remainder is up to the user. So I recommend spending $400 or more on a compound bow if you have the extra $$$.... if you don't but want a good functional xbow, the $100 Hon Shuieh will work fine.
