Re: Horton Crossbows
I believe the Bednars, who own Ten Point were once part of Horton. From everything that I have read on Archery Talk and Crossbow Nation there was no axe to grind as has been stated. Rick Bednar has stated that the Horton name was sentimental to him, as I believe his father had something to do with the startup of Horton back in the day. Not sure why people expect Ten Point to honor Horton warranties when they had nothing in the process of making them or made nothing off of them being sold. It [censored] but that is unfortunately how it played out. To blame Ten Point for any of this as many are makes no sense but many still choose to do so since blaming Horton isn't going to make their situation any better. Ten Point has said that they are going to resurrect the Horton name in the future.
As far as the Thompson Center aspect of Horton, Greg Ritz who is like the CEO or some other high up position of TC also was one of the last owner of Horton leading up to their collapse, so maybe the shop thought that since Ritz was part owner of both TC and Horton, the warranty would be honored, but I have heard nothing on that though.
