I'm looking to purchase a crossbow with an overall length for the entire xbow of 24.9 inches.

NJ hunting regulations say the stock of a crossbow for hunting can be no less than 25 inches. Is that the entire underbelly of the crossbow or the actual stock/butt of the xbow? That would be a pretty long stock if they meant the latter so I'm confused at what the law is referring to as the "stock".

It's such a cool crossbow and I would like to own it for backyard target practice and not necessarily to hunt...but maybe to hunt if allowed.

My specific question is it illegal to OWN a crossbow with a total length of 24.9 inches in NJ?
