Thank you.

Well, this is a firearms board. Why would you want to advertise a cross bow on a gun board? We don't take sword adverts, nunchakku adverts or throwing star adverts either. I guess I could go on with more examples, but I guess the answer is if you wanted to advertise any of these for trade for a firearm, it would be accepted. As long as a firearms is involved we pretty much allow it.

Just make sure you read the posting rules and eligibility guidelines before doing it.

Never thought about crossbows before they may not be firearms but they are used in the same ways. You would descibe someone as having shot a crossbow.

I guess the rule applies to airguns as well?

There have been many airguns bought and sold here. An arrow shooter is not a gun. An airgun is. But, as Bud said, a trade of a crossbow or other type of bow for a firearm is perfectly fine.
