BigBirdVA: I hope that was a typo when you said 3lb range, perhaps you meant 8lbs. I like heavier weapons because they help steady my aim, and give me a workout:wink:BigBirdVA said:A lightweight rifle with a scope is in the 3lb range. An xbow has a lot more hardware to it than a gun - throw in quiver and arrows too. Hardware = weight even if it's aluminum. I wish too. Maybe one day prices will come down on hi-tech materials.
This is why you teach young people to hunt - to help with the load! Grab a grandkid and put 'em to work.:wink:
Moon: Excals are about 6lbs. The 10pt slider is 7lb.
