How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Crossbows have a safety feature: Most crossbows are on safe at the end of the cocking process. Immediately after cocking, always check to make sure that your bow is on safe before doing anything else. This is critical!
Always keep the front end of a cocked crossbow pointed downrange and in a safe direction, even if you do not have an arrow loaded. Do not take the safety off unless an arrow is mounted in the crossbow in the shooting position and you are ready to shoot.
SAFETY GUIDELINES

Barnett crossbows are equipped with an automatic anti-dry fire safety mechanism, which engages every time the crossbow is cocked. An arrow must be loaded into the flight track to release the safety and the safety must be disengaged or in the “off/ fire” position before each shot.

The safety on a crossbow may be located on the side or the back of the sight bridge. Some crossbows have a dual safety system. Check your owner`s manual to learn how to use the safety for your specific crossbow correctly.
Yes. Crossbows have a chance to pen a still functioning shield. The formula is wack, but it takes into account the shields remaining hit points and it`s resistance stat, then compares it with the amount of damage of the crossbow.
Never carry your cocked hunting crossbow into the woods with an arrow loaded. Most modern crossbows are built to be safely carried into the woods when cocked, but only if the crossbow is unloaded.
We could talk about specifics and comparisons all day long, but the bottom line is: Compared to heavier and longer arrows from vertical bows, crossbow arrows drop like a rock and lose energy quickly after leaving the rail. What`s more, they do not stabilize well at long range.
Ballistic testing of longbow arrows against plate armour remains controversial. Recent research has confirmed the experiments of the 1970s, that 2mm of medieval plate armour could resist any medieval arrow or crossbow.
Expectation: The arrow fired by a crossbow without the piercing enchantment can`t penetrate a shield. Reality: The arrow fired by a crossbow can penetrate the shield without the piercing enchantment.
A crossbow is a ranged weapon using an elastic launching device consisting of a bow-like assembly called a prod, mounted horizontally on a main frame called a tiller, which is hand-held in a similar fashion to the stock of a long firearm. Crossbows shoot arrow-like projectiles called bolts or quarrels.
Yes, crossbows are fired by pulling a trigger like a gun, and they shoulder the same way because of a similar horizontal stock design, but how is this any different than pulling the trigger on a compound bow release?
Understanding Dots & Reticles

Your goal is to “zero” the top-most reticle or dot for a specific distance (20 yards in almost all cases unless instructed otherwise by the crossbow manufacturer).

Despite relatively low velocity and concussive force, the sharpness and propulsion force of crossbow bolts may be sufficient to enable penetration of the skull at short range.
Crossbow arrows have a high penetration force and can even pierce bone.
Do not leave your crossbow cocked for longer than a 24-hour period, as premature stretching of the string and cables may occur, leading to a loss in crossbow performance.
While all the complex parts and pieces give the crossbow quite a bit of power and make aiming more accurate, it also makes it significantly heavier than a traditional bow. The increased weight also tends to make crossbows much louder, and in a sport where stealth is your friend this is a big disadvantage.
When manually cocking a crossbow, place the ball of either foot in the cocking stirrup to prevent slippage. Bend over the stock and manually pull the string back, utilizing the strength of your hands, arms, legs, and lower back; or use a cocking device.
Metals, lubricants and polymer components that work fine at room temperatures have a tendency to fail when exposed to severe cold, which is why the U.S. Army located its Arctic Test Center at Ft. Greeley. It`s the same with crossbows.
A crossbow and a compound are similar in the way that they are both mechanical and powerful. However, a crossbow is much easier to draw and fire because of the trigger system. Because a compound bow does not have a trigger system, you still need to use your draw strength to shoot the arrow.
When it comes to overall power, the crossbow wins. When it comes to portability, the compound bow wins. So, think about where you will be hunting, what kind of game you are targeting, and what kind of physical shape you are in, and whatever you decide, we are sure your hunt will be a success.
Beware of crossbows that shoot at excessive speeds (such as greater than 400 FPS), as some will have more energy left in the bow assembly after the shot and will be much louder to shoot, with little practical gain from a hunting perspective.
One way you accomplish improved accuracy is with increased speed. Faster equals flatter-shooting, with less margin for error and less guesswork on range estimation required. Sound travels at 1,100 fps, but even the fastest crossbow bolts fly at less than half that.
If you don`t care about hitting a target, a powerful modern crossbow can shoot as far as 500 yards. If you want to hunt, up to 80 yards is possible for a very skilled shooter, however you should stick to a maximum of 60 yards, and preferably much less than that (30-35) if you are a beginner.
Modern crossbows typically generate speeds anywhere from 280-350 feet per second, with some models topping 400 fps.

Need the wire diagram to rewire my Ariens lawnmover to bypass the safety switch. It is Ariens GT-19 model # 931026 Serial # 001463.
Can you help? It is an old Ariens mower but still runs good but now I need to bypass the safety switch in order to run it any longer. The local Ariens dealer said I need to go through the internet and get the wire diagram as they cannot give it to me directly. They told me I needed the wire diagram and the part involved in bypassing the safety switch. Hope this is all the information you need to help me.

Thank you. Roger Fielitz

ANSWER : Here is owner manual:http://apache.ariens.com/manuals/030305C.pdfusually the switch is behind the ignition, sometimes at the N position of gearshift, just look for a switch with one wire coming in & one going out (usually the same color); disconnect the two wires & jumper them together to bypass the switch. Looks like yours has one under the seat.

I have had 2 Predator’s with the new trigger (metal ) come back to my store stuck in safe mode…I think both customers cocked it while bow was on safe mode..My problem is now the safety will not move at all….Can I reset the the trigger?
ANSWER : I came across this on aimblogs.net:

My Barnett Crossbow is stuck?
I have a Barnett crossbow and I pulled the string back till it was locked but I left the safety on and it’s stuck. The safety won’t budge and neither will the string.. I can’t find anyway of releasing the string
My recomendation would be….take the arrow off of the barrel, and case it up. Take it to your local boyer or archery shop. I’m guessing it will need to be put in a bow vice to get the pressure off of the trigger. Good luck.

Balls stuck in tubep
ANSWER : HelloIt sounds like there is a build up of material on either the ball throwing wheels (decreasing the overall velocity and causing the balls to stick in the tube) or a build up in the actual tube. From the manual, it recommends against using new tennis balls in the unit as this directly contributes to the debris build up on the ball throwing wheels. It is recommended to use slightly used balls as some of the waxy coating and ink on the ball would have been partially worn off. I would suggest using a spray cleaner (like Windex) to clean out the tube. IF you get any material on your cleaning cloth, continue cleaning and, if necessary, use a mild abrasive pad to help with the cleaning process.As for the ball throwing wheels, the manual suggests using a 40 to 60 grade sand paper and cleaning all of the wheels until they are slightly rough to the touch. The manual for your unit can be found here:http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=3&cad=rja&ved=0CEAQFjAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nedtennis.org%2Ffiles%2Ftennis-tutor-prolite-user-manual.pdf&ei=9fJ9Upu2I9GIkQf144DAAg&usg=AFQjCNFSv4Co1N7iJRhQODi7rKYGDUzwbAI hope this helps you out!
