Longbow vs. Crossbow: The Gunny Breaks It Down

The great R. Lee Ermey has a history lesson for us. 

This video we learn all about the historical English longbow and the crossbow.

Learn all about the longbow and the crossbow from The Gunny.

R. Lee Ermey otherwise known as The Gunny looks at the history of the English longbow and the crossbow. Both weapons are examined and shot with great effect against armor clad targets.

What is better the long distance longbow or the shorter distance crossbow? The crossbow was easier to shoot for any user. The longbow was certainly the long distance weapon capable of 300 yard shots. That is quite impressive and that weapon doomed French Armies that fought the English centuries ago.

Both the longbow and the crossbow are great weapons that changed history and continue to be great hunting implements even in this modern age.
