I bid $6 + $4 shipping on a slingshot auction that was advertized as a plastic slingshot with a fur bag of marbles. I was intrigued with the fur bag and thought the slingshot looked like a Daisy F16. I got it today and it was a Daisy F16 and the Rabbit skin fur bag had almost 1 1/2 pounds of assorted marbles in it. Some of the marbles are old ones, but I have not sorted them yet. I have wanted to see if the F16 would modify easily to shoot flat bands. I turned the handle around and took the tubes that were on it off trimmed them and put them back on to make handle cushions. I left them stick out about 3/4 of a inch to reduce hand slap, even though I don’t have a problem with hand slap the way that I shoot 1/2 steel balls. Here are pictures of the modification and the bag of marbles. When the tubes set tomorrow I will put a band set on it and show another picture of the bands tied on. -- Tex-Shooter

I already sold the ones rhat were not old. I also sold the fur bag! When you live on SS, you don't keep much very long, if you can turn a profit. About the only thing that I keep is my slingshot collection. -- Tex

Very nice, I like the tip about leaving some of the tubing sticking out for the prevention of hand slap, it may be very helpful for people with that problem! Cool mod, thanks!
