Shooting with pistol crossbows is a real pleasure, because it is a different projectile weapon. What is it and when can it be used? In which cases and why should we buy from the Zarimex gun store?
What are pistol crossbows
This is actually a smaller copy of the classic analogue, but made in the form of a pistol so that it is convenient to carry and use. In this case, the device has a comfortable handle and trigger, through which the arrow is fired at the desired time. In most cases, the corps is made of quality aluminum or flexible plastic, as well as fiberglass. The latter material is impregnated with special resins, which make it even stronger and more flexible, and the steel mechanisms in the structure are extremely durable and high quality.
Arrows for pistol crossbows are lighter and have only two feathers, and because of their smaller size, they are often called darts.
What are their advantages
Pistol crossbows have different advantages that distinguish them from the other types. They are:
- Great compactness and flexibility due to their small size and weight;
- High power, so they should not be underestimated. Depending on the model, the arrow speed can reach a range of 60 meters per second. The range of defeat is up to 15 meters;
- Convenient construction and easy to use design, due to the convenient handle and light weight, the pistol crossbow is perfect for shooting;
- It is convenient to transport from one place to another, again due to its compact size, which makes it easy to fit in any standard-sized backpack.
Can you hunt with them
Due to the fact that their range is less than 20 meters, pistol crossbows can be used to hunt small game at close range. They are also often used for sports purposes and target shooting, as well as for shooting for pleasure in amateur conditions. In the latter case, it is very important to take the necessary safety measures, because this type of projectile weapon is extremely powerful and can inadvertently kill someone.
