Bow Shop for Crossbow

I'm going to buy a Cross bow this year, would like a recommendation of a good Archery shop in York or Harrisburg area, that can help me with selection.

I know nothing about archery equipment - if the Sports show wasn't so dang crowded on weekends, I'd start there.

Thanks in advance for your assistance in my journey.

There are two good archery shops in Lancaster Co. Kinsey's on the outskirts of Elizabethtown and Lancaster Archery shop on rt 340 outside Smoke town. I recently bought my crossbow from Lancaster Archery shop
bohunr and Dennis Hill like this.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Can't go wrong with either of those. Also, if you are anywhere near Wellsville, Bowhunters Superstore just down the road from Pinchot State Park.

Look around and see what you like and then get it off Ebay. I am watching the same setup that Woods Walker got for $ 265, NIB on Ebay. Carbon Express 390.

Woods Walker gave the best two suggestions for you , you might try Trop gun shop outside Elizabethtown or The Sportsman Shop outside New Holland they might have something or lead you in the right direction

Bowhunters warehouse they are located in Wellsville,Pa. RT 74

They service my Parker Tornado ... they sell and service most crossbows...

I bought mine online to save on sales tax. Bowhunters Warehouse kindly pick up my service.

How did you save on sales tax? If a Company has a store in PA you have to pay sales tax, the only way you get out of sales tax is if they have no presence in PA.

I would also recommend Amazon. I have seen the same crossbows a lot cheaper then in the brick and mortars.
