In a word, the self-cocking Badger 80-pound draw pistol crossbow from Velocity Archery that flings 6.5-inch, 145-grain aluminum bolts at 190 feet per second, is, well, BAD.

And new for 2013, an after-market Badger red-dot sight makes this bad boy even badder!

A total of 20 inches in length and a total physical weight under 2 pounds (without the optional sight), the Badger has a power stroke of 6.8 inches and delivers 110 foot pounds of kinetic energy with its 80-pound draw weight.

With a suggested retail price of $49.99, you might as well buy two, because we’re sure you know someone who will want one as soon as you show him yours!
