Ever wonder what happens when a finger is in the way of a crossbow string?

Well this guy found out the hard way.

Witness why it is so important to watch where your fingers are when shooting a crossbow.

While shooting crossbows take note. Always watch where your fingers are!

In this video shared by YouTuber Amos Bunner we witness a crossbow user with his thumb in a dangerous place. His thumb is sticking up in the path of the speeding crossbow string. When he pulls the trigger watch his thumb and try not to pass out…

While some crossbows have a large forearm area under the danger zone to help keep fingers out of the way others do not. Before you pull that crossbow trigger better be sure where all of your fingers are at. Your fingers and thumbs will thank me for this public safety announcement.
