Re: Crossbow versus pre american civil war musket
[quote=JerseyPerson14;15785]I really do not know why the crossbow went out of favor. I understand that if guns back then were like modern guns then yes they would phase out crossbows, but those old muskets jammed easy, were not accurate, and very slow reload. The crossbow was complete opposite.
Yep, but look at how far guns/rifles have advanced since then, !
How far can you take a crossbow (without turning it into a gun)
Maybe someone saw the potential in guns ?
