Glad you caught that. Would not want to see the aftermath.

When they come out again put red loctite on them before putting them back in.My guess is they will stay in place then.

Hope you friend is OK. It looks like the cam hit the barrel really hard. (dent above quiver mount) Did Horton tell him how long it would take to get his bow repaired?

I just herd back from my friend, and he said that Cabelas had 2 OTHER horton visions do the same thing in the range. He was able to take the xbow back and he traded it in for a Ten Point XL. It is ashame because I thought that Xbow was going to be the next best thing.

I wonder if any of them came apart because the arrow wasn't tight on the string or the arrow was too light for the bow.

Could be. Saw a Vision essentially dry fired last year when the owner tried to shoot a flat nock. The string broke but the limbs seemed okay. Made a awful sound.

Using flat nocks on a bow like the Vision, which does not have a full contact rail, could create a dry fire scenario.

An arrow not being tight up against the string can do the same thing.
