Just wondering why crossbow manufacturers don't have a built in hand or finger guard/safety so that less yahoo's don't get their fingers taken off when shooting?
I went to Cabela's the other day to try out some of the crossbows. Cabela's had a plastic protector that they put over the bottom of the stock section that extends out so that it would be very tough to get your fingers around it and get them in the way of the string coming forward.
I have not seen this with other models or at other Crossbow dealers.
why not manufacture the bottom with a "Flare Out" type of stock that would actually guide your hand into place?
Just a thought. I haven't done it yet, but i fear the stupid as I am usually one to get injured doing anything. pulled my back out while sneezing, hurt my ankle standing in the shower, etc.
I know I know, I need bubble wrap around me.
but seriously, does anyone know why they just dont flare out the stock so that fingers would be out of the way? (other than cost)
