    But I think I should wait until I'm not baked before I decide to go to the sports store downtown and shell out three hundred dollars for one. I could do it though, I could have a crossbow in like forty five minutes. With a motherfuckin' scope on it.

    I could hunt with it or some shit. I bet I could nail a squirrel if it wasn't paying attention.

    Make sure to switch to secondary fire mode if you buy one.

    Do you have to have a license to own a boomerang in Australia?

    I say go for it, bows and crossbows are good fun. As a hunter you score major machismo over those pussies that use guns.

    and in US they're technically categorized as sports equipment, too! Even though I could probably take a motherfuckin' elk with one of the bigger ones.

    a three foot bolt that's 4cm thick pinning some shitskin to a wall would be considerable stopping power.

    Make sure to put silencers on it, crossbows are not as loud as a gun, but the sound can still carry, particularly at night.

    Hunting implies the possibility of failing. With a crossbow, you wont fail.

    Basically the two little bits reduce string vibration, while the big bit reduces the noise when the string hits the stop. It looks like the linked kit also has a bit to reduce friction as the bolt leaves the carriage.

    Edit: Didn't see that Maggot has already fielded the question. So, what he said.
