  1. Seems like a good deal to me. For defensive purposes, a safetied minicross bow is better than a firearm in almost any tactical condition your average citizen will find themselves in. Almost all engagements for an individual who isn’t seeking combat will occur within 30 or 40 feet of that person, ranges at which rifles would be overkill. A small crossbow is cheaper, safer, and more accurate than a low-end pistol. In fact, most engagements would take place at a range where a machete would be a very effective weapon. Of course, you can still make the argument for a 10-gauge shotgun being the most effective response, but in the hands of an inexperienced rifleman, it is as likely to injure the wielder as the victim.

  2. Don’t knock knives…
    knives make wonderfully effecient weapons when used properly, and have a much higher kill rate than guns when properly used.

  3. I wasn’t trying to say that knives/crossbows/etc. were poor ways of defending oneself. I was just trying to say that adding more government regulation doesn’t work.
