Due to gift card obligations, I am limited to buying a bow at a certain Sporting Goods Store(Mans Name). My choices for around the $500 range are the Barnett AVI 400 and the Crosman Teton. Both are packages.
Which do you guys recommend?

I'd get a hold of Arrowhead on this sight,the store you named is not the place to go in my opinion.

If I had to choose between the two, I would opt for the Centerpoint (crosman) Teton. They seemed like the higher quality of the two, at least in my opinion.

Pa hunter29, why dont you ask arrowhead if he will take the voucher and you get a real crossbow! might have to add some but you get a much nicer bow. plus you be able to get parts. ............ just a opinion! or sell it ! take money to arrowhead? almost got enough for a tornado! wouldnt rather shoot that bow?

Another vote for Arrowhead. I bought a parker tornado off of him, and you can't beat the deal he gives you. Parker's are the same price everywhere, I believe parker sets the price, but the extras and service you get from Mike are second to none.

Of the two, I would go with the Crosman. Check to see if that dealer can special order something else in. No rush at this point as the season is a long way off. For $500, Ten Point is coming out with a lower line in that range and so is Parker in 2010.

Which one feels better in your hands?Will they let you shoot them?That may help you decide.As dpms said see if they can special order you a bow.I personally like Excaliburs because of simplicity.Face it a 500 dollar bow will work well no matter the brand.Consider the warranty of each brand as well.A good warranty is worth extra cost in my opinion.

I agree with the others, sell the gift card and go with a Tornado, best crossbow out there for under $1k in my opinion and I've owned a bunch of them

lets just say............if you were to buy a gun..........would it be made in china? would that gun cost more than 500$......... could you get parts quick if broken? ............ why would a crossbow or a compound bow be any different?.......and who gets the money......china or our sponser? ........ there would be no decision here!!!!!!!!!
