I think it might be a good idea. Even though I'll never be able to use it. It's still a great idea for other youth! I wish I had the chance to use a crossbow. I would have been hunting a lot earlier. I like crossbows because they're more effective than a shotgun or bow IMO for a little kid. Personally, I think a shotgun was awkward when I was little, even youth ones. But I shot a crossbow a few times and loved it, but was sad that I'd never be able to use it hunting unless I had a limb cut off or something.
EDIT: I was re-reading the posts and it seems that you guys are kind of right. I know a kid who was a hunter and broke his arm and wasn't able to bend all the way and can't shoot a bow correctly. These are the youth who should be able to use a crossbow.
