Horton Horton XL Explorer Crossbow Crossbows


Crossbows Manufacturer: Horton
Horton Model: Horton XL Explorer Crossbow
Review Category: Crossbows

Purchase: Crossbows The agene of defeat, lost of words, and never hunting again were things that ran through my mind when thinking of hunting with a bow or crossbow. I guess the thought of missing the BUCK of my life with a bow but knew if I had my rifle, I would be looking at him on my wall. The memories would live forever. One day, I was at a pawn shop. I saw a Horton XL Explorer crossbow. The worker at the store and I began to talk. As you know, I immediately started to talk negative about the crossbow. The worker stated to me with a smile, Just go ahead and get it. If you do not like it for any reason, I will refund your money. I thought to myself, this will give me a reason to talk even worst about the product. I will wipe that smile right of his face when I return. So, I agreed to buy it for $210.00. I then went to Dicks Sporting Good and purchased arrows, practice tips, and a target. When I got home, I immediately went to my backyard, set up target, and was ready. I was surprise after shooting the first arrow at 20 yards that the crossbow was already sited in. I had to make no adjustments to the scope that came with it. This was not enough to convince me that this crossbow was that good. To make a long story short, I shot 5 arrows at my target in the same circle. I broke or damaged 3 out of the 5 arrows from repeatedly hitting the spot. I was amazed with the accuracy. I could not believe my eyes. I then shot 4 more and damaged 2 of the arrows. I begin to smile thinking of all the deer that I could kill with this Horton XL Explorer crossbow. This crossbow is just as accurate as my rifle at short ranges. The next day, I went back to the pawn shop with a smile on my face. The same guy was there. He immediately said, I already know. I wanted to tell you yesterday how good this crossbow was but I want you to see for yourself. I had nothing bad to say about the crossbow. Believe me, I had all the intentions in the world to come back with negative feedback but I could not find any flaws. The guy then told me that the crossbow was his but he sold it to me just so he could make a believer out of me and convert me to a bow hunter. Im looking forward to this hunting season with my crossbow. I would recommend this product to any and all hunters. Thanks to Horton for creating such an excellent crossbow. Im looking forward to buying more of your products.

Crossbows Horton XL Explorer Crossbow quality: This product is well built. This is one of the most accurate weapons that I ever used.

Horton XL Explorer Crossbow summary: The agene of defeat, lost of words, and never hunting again were things that ran through my mind when thinking of hunting with a bow or crossbow. I guess the thought of missing the BUCK of my life with a bow but knew if I had my rifle, I would be looking at him on my wall. The memories would live forever.
