    Hey Fellow Shooters: I would like to thank everybody here who helped me grow. I am new to this. A month ago, I bought a slingshot. Today, I shortened the bands I bought from simple shot to 21cm, so now the elongation factor is about around 350%, 73cm draw length. It was 280% in the past, the...

    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...

    Yesterday, I tried to shoot holding the slingshot in my other hand (Right) to see if I could even do it. The outcome wasn't bad, but really felt awkward. The hardest part for me was putting the ammo in the pouch with my opposite hand, that and everything else.. Have you ever tried it? If not...

    So I'm used to shooting sideways but through the forks. When I shoot this way I aim by following the top band and the top fork. I was wondering how would you aim shooting sideways but over the top? Do you still follow the bands? or the middle of the top fork? I couldn't really figure it out

    So I'm new and I've noticed videos of arrows being shot with slingshots? For people that actually have done it, is it actually practical hunting wise? What's the effective shooting range? And what kind of slingshots could be used? Maybe a seal sniper?

    After you have shot out the center of the can and you shoot through the hole does it still count as a hit just because you didn't hear it hit the can?

    I did some shooting and made a video about it. Not my best day of shooting, but still fun. A little frustrating, I admit. Don't do this. When you shoot, hit what you're aiming at. Maybe once or twice at least.

    Hey everyone. I am currently finishing off making a mini-hunter by Bill Hays. This slingshot is set up for 0TT shooting but I have never shot 0TT. Does anyone have any advice or tips for shooting 0TT? Cheers Luke

    Several have ask if my light tubes can be shot on a Saunders Wrist Rocket Pro, so I made a double set and ran some test on a Saunders Wrist Rocket Pro and then I ran a test with Saunders Black Mamba bands for comparison. Note I used the thick ends of the clip for these light bands. Lastly I ran...

    Second post today! Arn't I busy? Anyway, I live in the open country of England and I own a massive field. I was wondering, if I set up a portaloo, a marqueet, supplies and so on, could I hold a tournament? Or, at least, would anyone even be interested? It'd be in Warwickshire. Please respond...
