I have no idea how we got here, but we finally made it to the 200th video! To celebrate, I went back and looked for the most requested build-along. The most requested video was a crossbow, so today I proudly introduce the 100 pound PVC crossbow.

It's a pretty powerful crossbow with a 100 pound prod, PVC stirrup, captive rest and a simple lever trigger. It's nice and stable because the bolt nocks directly onto the string and is held in the front with a captive rest. This allows the crossbow to be fired sideways and upside-down.

I'll be posting the build-along very soon, so stay tuned!

Thanks for watching and enjoy.

One thing to note is that a crossbow like this is about comparable to a 30-35 pound recurve bow. That said, it is not hunting legal in many places but is still a pretty powerful weapon and should be treated with care and respect.

If you're interested in buying a crossbow or just want to see some specs on various commercial hunting and sporting crossbows out there, check out this site: http://www.bestcrossbowsreviews.org/
