The thing about crossbows is that they are more accurate than firearms. Most crossbows sold are all open sights, and it is worthless at all times. The standard sight is 4 x scopes with crosshairs that gives sight to shooters at 20 – 60 yards. Shooting off a target at 20 yards could destroy arrows if shooting on a same spot.

Some of the crossbows has so called factory defect so for your safety, check everything even though it should be done in the factory.

Once it’s done, make sure the arrow is backed all the way from the string and there is no space in between nock and string. Crossbows when often used tend to lose all the tight bolts so always double check everything before using it.

Practice is needed as you are hitting a paper and move on with the real life targets when you perfect the bull’s eye many times. After hitting your 3D paper target, practice shooting in trees or grass.
