Although I have no interest in crossbows (at least not yet) I got an e-mail from Parker Bows today about the Concorde auto-cocking crossbows' prices being (temporarily, according to them) cut by nearly 50% and thought I'd pass that along:

Although Cabela's still has them listed at their 4-digit prices I've seen them on Amazon and other on-line retailers for as little as $549 w/free shipping.
