Any one have one? Thinking about buying one but the low price concerns me. Also I've been a bow hunter most of my life and on the few occasions that I hunted with a gun in the past I have forgotten to take the safety off prior to squeezing the trigger. Which isn't a big deal when using a rifle etc but a few crossbows I have tried in the past won't allow you to squeeze the trigger, then take the safety off and squeeze the trigger again to shoot without re cooking the bow a bit. ( which ruin an opportunity at a deer etc)
Is this an issue with the pile driver? Thanks for any info.

I picked one up last year on sale at Dunhams for $249. Keep checking their flyers for sales and forget about Walmart. Seems to work well and no problems with the safety. The scope is junk so I picked up a Truglo for it. I would say go for it!

Thanks for the info and will definitely keep checking Dunhams. 2 more questions if you don't mind..
First, compared to other crossbows is it as quiet or louder then others? And also are you using the arrows that comes with it or do you suggest upgrading to a different arrow? Thanks again.

It's not loud at all. I would say the sound is comparable to other makers and I am using the bolts that came with it. Other than the scope if it works well, don't change it.
