I think it would be illegal in most states as the min draw wt. in most is 100 pounds they really did not think this one out . Maybe OK to use in target shooting but nothing else .

:wtf: In my opinion, it's as ugly as the price tag :thumbdown:

Even more ugly is their advertising, wonder how many deer the moron's will wound before they realize it's not a freaking rifle.

here we go again :eusa-deadhorse: . so yesterday I go in my friends shop that sells raven with my BD400 apart in the new olive drab
soft case.assemble the bow put the charger crank on it in less than 30 secounds . shop owners saying its old style junk its gona shoot 310fps though the cronogrph. he shoots it and its shooting 405fps.after that comes sales pitch on raven claims one fella has 1000 shots on his original string (fella just paid to have it changed because hes going elk hunting and going to shoot elk @ 100 yrds).well bd400 is sitting on bench I say gee raven doesn't look any shorter in length owner holds raven over bd400 in a kind of lame way and its no shorter. then he says hold it take it out side and shoot it I say get that puckin thing away from me i wouldn't hunt with it if you gave it to me.guys an Excalibur dealer hates Excalibur crossbows and have not bought one Excalibur item from his store. oh and he and his raven fellas want me to go elk hunting out in Colorado Aug. 31. I passed as im not spending time looking for needlessly wounded game. ( ill be a Viking and hunt with a real crossbow :eusa-dance: )

Im used to all this crap. When l was a kid l worked at a kawasaki motorcycle dealership. ...we called it bench racing. Always bickering about who's bike was faster. ..lts fun to a point but l think all the ravins parts makes it similar to the German tanks in ww2 bad ass but too complicated. Just give it time and the ravins will blow a piston or a driveshaft. Lol.

It may be a good bow but I will never touch one. There advertising hurt our sport and all for the money. Waiting for the day that they go out of business. They remind me of Hillary Clinton. LOL
