Holding shooting position as ammo speeds to target for follow through.

This is my attempt to answer the question to make a video on how to aim at a target. It's the best I can do. I couldn't figure out how to do a video showing the shooters perspective while aiming at a target. Hope it helps.

Nice pictures Smitty, I guess some got it and some dont, I tried this side action aiming thing and I knocked the snot out of my hand and I think I just might lose that nail. Ouch!

Yeah, I probably look like I'm self promoting, but I'm the only one here to use for pictures. I'm just doing my best to try and help others by showing them how I do something. I'm not saying my way is best or the only option, but it works for me. I started visiting slingshot forums to learn more and a few of the members went out of their way to help me. I want to be one of those members who's willing to share with others.

Smitty I have seen your video and it is very well done very informative. Appreciate you sharing. I cant seem to branch out and develope that aiming pin point accuracy. The desire is there but my hand and fingers seem to be getting in the way of a straight line shot. Thanks for trying to teach one of the unteachables.

I'd like it if others would post pictures or stills from a video showing how they do their slingshot thing. Joerg and Tex are the ones I have got to watch so far...and Mel from his video...and a few from Geko. I've learned something from each one. Geko taught me I don't want to try shooting bands without a frame like he has in one of his videos. Ha Ha !
There is so much to learn about something so simple as a slingshot! The answer is acquired only through practice and only through practice will we find the question.
