I received mine today. It looks very nice and works well.

That is awesome! I did not think these were going to ship until next month!

Anyone else receive theirs?

What kind of stopping power do you get out of it? Can you effectively use cardboard/Styrofoam as a target from a few feet away and get it to penetrate?
so how do i get one? did they sell out or something?
When did mass drop get flooded with prudes? Can't wait for mine!
I'll say it if nobody else will. This is just plain wrong Massdrop! "Common Sense" dictates this ad & offering be pulled.

Ok, I'm sorry. It's obviously wrong to threaten anyone in any circumstance especially a workplace. And it's reckless to advertise an item to be used to shoot people at your office. Fair.
From my very first post I've only been trying to say you may be overestimating the power of this crossbow. I got in on a previous drop, the one that holds multiple picks, it doesn't pierce cardboard from 2 feet away. If you want to hurt someone with this you need to shoot them point blank in the eye, and even then they likely wont go blind. It'll be equivalent to shooting someone in the eye at point blank with a nerf gun. Unpleasant, but, not lethal.

Pulled? Dude, they sell knifes on this site...
To dangerous for my 12 year old kid?

I'd say probably less dangerous than a BB gun, but similar enough perhaps. Do you trust your kid with a BB gun? It all depends on how responsible you think your kid is and how well you can teach them "gun" safety. If you give it to them I'd make it very clear that they are not to shoot people or animals with it under any circumstances and that it is dangerous but you trust them because they are responsible. Then make a big deal of teaching them the four rules of gun safety (just treat it like a gun as far as safety goes). They should also probably be taught not to dry fire it. In a normal bow or crossbow this can cause damage. If they want to uncock it, they should either load it and fire at a target or pull the string up and ease it forward slowly. It should also not be stored loaded or cocked or it could weaken the bow.
looks very cool but I thought it would be able to fold into a smaller size by the appearance.
"Keep it loaded on your desktop and you’ll never have to worry about an office dispute. "

Yeah, because you'll no longer have an office to dispute in.

Yeah, there's no way I wouldn't get the pink slip if I brought this to work. It's not right but unfortunately it is the state of the times.

That said I can't think of a realistic use other than having it sit on my desk (at home) so I'm going to pass. Cool design though!
This is so cool. Does anyone know if this can be shipped to Canada, and if yes what are the costs involved?

Damn, what a pity :(
What a dumb law. Sorry you guys have to deal with this kind of shenanigans up there. Well at least you can get short barreled rifles easily.
Could you get on a plane with this in your carry on.

Maybe? It's gonna depend on how much of a salty the TSA agents are that day. I wouldn't risk it personally unless I was prepared and ready to ship it home. That being said, items like this (unlike firearms) have no shipping restrictions. So ship it to yourself to your heart's content. Be careful shipping internationally though. Some countries might take it in customs.
I would advise to do research on prior Massdrops before joining this drop. Just a word to the wise...

Right, just your time, and add in a level of frustration.

Say, like no updates on shipping info ever or any progress in 2 weeks on finding the order, after the date it was supposed to arrive. Filed a disputed charge 5 weeks after the credit card charge and Pay Pal, for some strange reason, locked down my account. Because I didn't receive my order? The crossbow came a few days later with still no tracking info and was found to be crudely built, so reversal of the dispute took a week for the CC, but PayPal is still dragging their feet, 2 weeks after. And I can't return the crossbow and get a replacement or money back until the dispute is fully closed. Sounds like fun?

It came today, very early.
