  9. Slingshot Hunting
    I've been making slingshots for a while now, but I haven't got around to too much hunting. This morning I looked out the window and saw a small pidgeon sitting in a tree and took a shot.

    Hi there, found this site after searching for a new SS. I got my first slingshot as a kid then made a few using forked tree branches. Then abandoned it when i got into BB guns. Years later I bought a folding wrist rocket with ammo pouch and used it for pest control. Now I'm here looking into...
