Never had a fork hit, but my last shot of the day was a long one and I think I flipped a second too soon. Either way 3/8 steel made a nice little hole in my hand. May have a hairline fracture but dont have insurance so just gonna ride out the next few weeks without stressing it too much.

YOWZA!!! Looks just like the hole I put in my thumb trying to shoot bareback ... same location. Mine did heal, and I seem to have had no further problem with it. I wish you the same recovery.

Cheers ........ Charles

That's definitely a nasty ouchie. I did that too. It was numb almost all day before it started hurting. It went through various shades of color, then stayed dark purple and yellow for awhile. I tried to keep it hidden, cuz I didn't want anyone to see it and chew me up over it--or worse--take away my slingshot. It took almost a month to heal. I also applied Neosporin and kept it bandaged, so it wouldn't scar. You can't see it anymore.

Gloves are a good idea. Nothing hurts worse than re-injuring an injury. Hope it's nothing more than a surface wound and deep bruising.

Just don't use a slingshot until that fully heals. I have a scar on my hand because I used my slingshot after I injured myself
