Wife got me it for my birthday today.

Will it kill a rabbit? Pretty fun to shoot either way:)

50lb draw.

Probably with good shot placement at close range...

Absolutely. No doubt. 50 draw is plenty. As long as it is accurate you should be good to go.

I've killed a bunch of rabbits with an air rifle. That thing should have more power.

Words of advice...

If you shoot one in suburbia and have neighbors that are close, make sure you shoot it in such a manner that it dies quickly.

Nothing worse than running after a screaming wounded cottontail in your neighbors front yard while school children are getting off the bus... not that I have any idea what that's like.

Should do the job. I have killed rabbits and squirrels with a BB gun that only shoots about 580 fps. But don't use field point. Get some type of cutting head. Looks like this one is the same. http://www.amazon.com/Unknown-LE50-50-lb-Pistol-Crossbow/dp/B000N239RG
