How many shoot their TAC-15's off-hand?

I am really dying to pull the trigger (pun intended) on a TAC-15i. But, I enjoy shooting off-hand a fair amount of time. I will probably spend 75% of the time off a rest but it is important for me to be able to shoot comfortably offhand as well. I've been told the TAC is not a good crossbow for shooting off hand. I would like to hear from individuals with real, firsthand experience? Is the comfortable off hand? BTW... my current xbow rig weighs in at 10.7 lbs albeit an extremely well balanced weight.

Thanks and any and all opinions!

    Clever handle. The TAC 15 is more front heavy than others. If the 25% usage is going to be at moderate ranges, say 40 and under, it may not matter. But beyond that will be a factor. It's just like the quest for the perfect car, scope, woman, etc. It depends.

    Thanks for the reply. It looks like it is just as hard as it is to find a good woman. I guess you just have to take the good with the bad. ;-)

    bow or woman? I have 23+ years and two wonderful sons with my current one and she's still the girl of my dream so I think she's a keeper. ;-) Now... if I can find that kind of happiness with a bow! It took more than 2 dozen guns in my collection before I was completely happy. I guess the wife should be glad I'm not as fickle with woman!

    It is a big , awkward , crossbow for true off-hand shooting so weather I am prone, sitting
    or standing I try to use a rest of some kind.

    For prone, I use a by-pod attached to the crossbow. for sitting and standing I use a Primos
    mono pod (The one with the trigger release that allows you to raise the bow to the shooting
    height and simply pulling the trigger release and the mono pod extends to that height).

    I really like the mono pod for hunting turkeys because of it's fast adjustability.

    I have not made a true offhand shot with mine (I'm sure it is possible) but I allways try
    to aquire a rest of some sort with rifles , pistols and crossbows if possible.

    So my answer would be= No.
