exocet question

Post by Cworetired » Fri Jul 24, 2009 9:49 pm

Just got my first crossbow a Excoet 200 with the right stuff package. This is my first bow of any type. Got it all together and ready to try some shots with the kit bolts and field tips. I have a 18-1 target to try also. Are the bolts ready to use after I install the field tip? I see the other end is threaded what am I missing? Thanks all

Thats a popular question! I wish excalibur included that bit of info in their manuals. I admit I thought the same thing with my first excalibur. :oops: I called the shop where i bought it and it sounded like they get that question alot. :roll: :lol: Have fun shooting, I have read good things about your target bag. ENJOY!!!!!!!!!

It is all ready to go. Have fun and i know the Excalibur addiction will over take you soon. You have a Great bow in the Exocet, I bet you will be surprised at the performance when you let that first bolt fly, I know i was. And a BIG welcome to the forum if i have not said it yet.

do yourself a favor and stick a piece of masking tape on one of the limbs that says "arrow?" I too, am new at this and believe it or not the other day I cocked her up, took careful aim and my first dry fire was history. You feel like a dummy and hopeful you won't hurt the limbs if you do it. One of the other forum guys suggested the tape and so far its a great reminder. It may come off eventually but I kinda like being reminded.

Welcome to the forum, nice to see another USN Retired on the forum. I really don't feel retired yet, it's only been a month and a half. You'll love the Exocet, ask all the questions you need, everyone here is full more than welcome to help.
