I just joined the ranks

A couple of months ago I started shooting my recurve, thinking about going traditional this year, but as luck would have it my shoulder and elbow started acting up again, I was sore for two weeks, and still am as I type. Sooooooo, I just ordered a new Horton "The Brotherhood" crossbow. Don't get me wrong, i'm not taking it out until I shoot it for a couple of weeks to get used to it. Here is a picture of it.

I like them...just with they didn't weigh 400 pounds. Those suckers are sure dense for their size! Something like 8.4 pounds?...

It should be queiter than the TRT ultra lite at least...hear those things are loud. Looks like a reasonable replacement for the older TRT bow...which Horton should have definetly kept in their line up. GREAT little bow for the money right there!
