    Some of the mechanical broadheads labeled 'crossbow' have stronger retention ring to keep em from opening in flight (e.g Rage) otherwise it's mostly packaging or heavier weight for higher FOC

    That really depends on the bow. The Mission cocking device makes no noise, and IMO better than the AcuDraw; but it can't be applied to another brand without installing their cocker rope stay.

    The Concorde can be uncocked manually as well. Most shoot an arrow to unload. I prefer to let let mine down with a rope cocker (less noise), both the Excalibur and my Missions.

    Excal factory strings are made from D97 for a purpose: being somewhat elastic they help prevent the bow from 'spontaneously disassembling' in case of a dryfire.

    Even sadder is that there are folks who actually think our own GOVERNMENT caused or facilitated the action and political pundits who foment that notion. e.g. Bech, Rush.
