Gripping the Crossbow
Grooves or placement guides for your fingers and thumb are located on the forearm of the crossbow stock. Be sure to use them—leaving a finger in the path of the crossbow string as it snaps forward results in serious injury.
Potentially Dangerous Grips
All three of the hand positions above are potentially dangerous and could lead to severe finger injury when firing the crossbow.
With the leading hand in this position, there is no possibility of the cable passing over the fingers and injuring your hand.
