Wouldnt deer hunt with a 20 lber but what other stuff could be taken with it. Do those even shoot very far?

Man, all I can say is that you're going to get what you pay for. :roll:

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

The 20 lb bow isn't going to be worth much of anything.  I used to work at one of the state Conservation Education Camps run by the KDFWR when I was in college.  We had some little 20 lb recurves down there for smaller kids that couldn't pull the 25 lb compounds.  You could literally put your fingers on the string and your thumb around the back of the bow and squeeze the two together. :roll:  They weren't that accurate either. :roll:

I'm with BC on the bow. It gets a little weird trying to shoot a bow that is so light so have no feel for it or your posture. I takes a bit of weight just to steady your hand.
 The cross bow might be alright for squirrel at very close range. 90 # sounds strong but it ain't so. A lot of mechanical dynamics come into play here. Somewhere I think I might still have a link to an explanation as to why crossbows are such heavy pull weights. Without going into alot of physics mumbo-jumbo, suffice it to say there are real world reasons a 150 lb crossbow is maybe as fast as a good 60 lb compound bow. At 90 lb, that might equate to about a 40 lb bow. The name NC Star already leaves a bad taste in my mouth. They flooded the market with cheap junk scopes a few years ago, so my expectations are more of the same with anything they have to offer. The design of the crossbow is a rip-off of a design sold by Barnett years ago. (Barnett Commando) I like the break-over/ self cocking design, but after doing some research I found that Barnett had trouble with it. The main problem being the pivot point wearing and the cast alum frame breaking at that pivot point. You can bet the chinese (NC Star) aren't building them near as beefy as the one Barnett sold ( made in Great Britton, I believe) and therefore won't last as long and may be down right dangerous to use.

The difference is the length of the "power stroke" (distance the string travels).  Essentially, on a vertical bow, the string pushes the arrow for a longer distance than on a crossbow. O0

well ,  i wouldnt expect the  crossbow to last that long its obviously made cheaply.  I dont care if i break it but if its going to shoot a bolt into my arm when it breaks ill steer away from ordering it. Cant find a lot of info on google about it they dont seem very popular.  The fishing rod thingy is what really seems fun. I know it wouldnt be as efficient for hunting as meh pellet rifle with a scopez, except maybe on a turkey but i doubt it.

Cheaply made stuff is usually more dangerous to the user.
