  3. The Art of Shooting
    Edited per Charles' questions. I shoot OTT, usually using 030 latex straight cut @ 3/4". It seems that after putting on new set of rubber that my shot placement is dramatically more inconsistent. Once those bands get 40-60 shots under their belt then shot placement comes back to what I...

    I found this site that has the Rolyan tubes and their bands. The prices look reasonable to be. Check it out and post your opinion.

    Thanks so much for having me. I'm pretty much a novice. I have a daisy powerline model I bought from walmart. I have had some practice with it as I also owned one before. I was really hoping someone could give me tips on mods for better accuracy, and faster firing. I was thinking I should mod...

    So, many of us have a BOB...Bug Out Bag. In it there are many survival tools, one of which is a slingshot. The question is how do you maintain the longevity of the bands/tubes on your forks? We all know that heat is an enemy. Do you rotate them? Are they unbanded? what would you do it the...

    Today I went to the supermarket to buy some groceries and other daily stuff. Suddenly, I got surprised. In the promotions corner (where they dump almost every kind of product, regardless from genre) there was a package of exercise bands that I've never heard about. The brand's name is "Crivit...

    I ordered a few sets of band assemblies from Tex Shooter (Bill) this past Tuesday and they arrived in the mail today (Friday). I have not slung them up yet, but if the packaging and workmanship are any indication these will be awesome. You can see the workmanship in the cutting, forming, and...
