    I am going to Bass Pro in Springfield in 2 weeks to buy a crossbow. I am willing to spend some money.

    I like the Horton Summit crossbow and want a Block Crossbow target, but am really pretty ignorant about this subject.

    I want to get one because my son is scared of a gun's noise.

    So, what do I want, what scope do I attach, what arrows do I buy, how much is all of this gonna cost me?

    Thanks in advance.

    Rocky, in no way can anyone tell you which one to get, I have 3 of them all different. I would suggest doing what you already stated, go to a pro shop or two and shoot every one that catches your eye. The factory recommendations on what type of bolts to shoot are about as good as you are going to get, yes some fine tuning can be done. Just go with what you like and feels right to you to shoot, most any reputable shop will let you try most anything you want to try out before hand. good Luck with it, just make sure it does all you will ever want it to do....... then maybe slowly work on your son and his fear of powder weapons a little at a time........ Good Luck!
