I know all the mess with Horton,Ten point crap but I have a chance to get back into bow hunting with my sons and I can buy a Horton XL arrows and all with case and scope for $300 in great condition but DANG after reading post and blogs it is confusing so being that I haven't bow hunted in 20 yrs should a man buy a Horton or not ...... Thanks

It was a decent bow in its time, but I probably wouldn't get it just for the fact that parts could be hard to find.

If you can wait the new bows will be out in a month at the ATA show. May be something that catches your eye.

If money is an issue I'd look at Wicked Ridge rather than buy an older Horton. I like the Ten Points with the crank attached to the stock. having this is worth the extra money in the long run. Those who have the crank on the stock won't go back.

I currently can not recommend any TenPoint crossbow due to the random nature of their trigger/safety "Preload" problem (that can occur normally on any hunt) and the way they are handling the problem - no direct contact with customers announcing the problem and offer of corrective action if a test indicates they have the problem. There is only a "Safety Warning" on their web site.
