I have a Diamond Outlaw. Came with sites, arrow rest, stabilizer and wrist sling. $550 with a dozen arrows. Not the quietest bow on the market but not much louder than my dads $1200 bowtech.

I trolled eBay a bit then found this PSE Mossy Oak X.image-1950664590.jpg
It's got fiber sights and a fall away rest and came with a nice quiver and Scott release, peep sight and stabilizer. Also came with 8 carbon G2 arrows and bow wax and a big plastic case that holds everything. Cost me $242. I took it to an Archery store and they couldn't believe how little I paid for it. Guess I got lucky.

I also have this older competition compound bow.image-3041810813.jpg

I don't hunt, just shoot at a foam block in the backyard with my daughter. It's a fun activity we both enjoy. She is 10 and is in the 4-H Archery program.

A lot of consideration needs to be given to draw weight and length. Don't just buy anything as you can buy the wrong thing. Arrow length and spline is another big deal. An arrow can be $9 or more, each. Bad arrows equal bad accuracy. I just bought 6 for $80. Expensive but they fly and hold aim amazingly.
