    Give Horton another call, ask for an RA# send it in and have them check over your crossbow. You have a great crossbow, but you are having problems that needs to be fixed. Not sure why you're having that many problems with it.
    Good luck and let us know how things turns out.

    i actually called the place i purchased it and they are willing to let me return it... that sounds alot better than sending it in and being bowless during bow season! I am not a big fan of "sending things in" especially an item like this!! i have been thinking of switching to one of the Mission crossbows they have a lifetime warranty versus Horton 5 year AND I can bring it to the local shop to have it fixed under that warranty! with the issues im having already im afraid this bow wont make it past 5 years!! its a bittersweet relationship

    If by any reason you slip with the handle, before string engages in the trigger fingers, while cocking you will have a drive fire., not to mention the handle flying around like a helicopter blade :-)
    Are you sure you can skin griz, pilgrim?

    Took a real nice old doe Saturday . Rage blasted thru right behind shoulder bolt stuck deep in the ground deer dropped immediately. very happy with crossbow! perfect pocket shot!
    I also cranked it back without the clicker and put another bolt in quietly in case she moved. No trouble as long as you hold the handle. I know not for everyone but seems pretty easy to me. This crossbow has been such an improvement since the last 4 or 5 I have had so easy to use, shoots quiet and the cocking rope is great!

    I'm a very happy Storm owner!

    No issue with my Storm as well. It's a 2016 and has timing marks on the cams. Both cams are dead on at rest and cocked. I did replaced my string at about 400 shots seeing some center serving wear. I'm 300 shots on a 60X and it's like new. I think the severe string angle of any/all RDX bows will be tougher on servings than traditional Xbows.

    Accuracy has been good from day 1 shooting 20-50 yards. I've upgraded arrows to SSAS BEEs that were spine matched and I've painstakingly matched each arrow/tip combination to weigh .2gn of each other. I hunt with Grim Reaper 1.5" Razor tips and practice with Grim Reaper practice tips. I think this is a nice combination that takes any question out of the fieldpoint/broadhead POI.

    The ACUdraw took some practice to use, but I love it. Especially when I'm in my climber stand or with the Storm on a Field Pod inside a blind. I'm on the same page with Stormslayer. There is some risk cocking the bow with the Engagement lever off, but it can be done.

    I'm very happy with the Storm and wouldn't consider a change to a lesser bow. I might upgrade at some point if Horton/TenPoint improve the weight or significantly improve the speed of the bow

    I shot this 225lb Texas boar last month. A 22 yard double lung, complete pass-through that buried the arrow 75% in the sandy soil of south Texas.

    I can't wait to get back into the woods with the Storm in September.
