  13. Homemade Slingshots
    Hey guys, Well recently I haven't really been very active on here But I decided to get to work on a natty. Seeing as 'the weather outside was frightful' I grabbed an old (rubbish) fork and set to work. My aim was to create a bit of an edc/pocket poacher/comfy catapult that is ergonomic. I do...
