I agree. Sometimes I wonder why slinging isn't more popular in the states and I think it's the availability of firearms and our laws that make the US different than other countries. If we didn't have such easy access to guns more people would sling probably. Saying this I have what my wife would say are more guns than anyone needs I just don't get the same thrill and desire to always improve that I do with slingshots. They're just so much more challenging than plugging off rounds. Different latex, tapers, pouches, ammo, frame widths it goes on and on. And if that wasn't bad enough then there's building your own frames and that opens its own can of worms. Lol. You can get into the sport with some rubber bands and a treefork or custom frames costing 300 dollars and the latest elastic with falconry grade pouches. I could go on and on but slingshots just get in your blood and kills all other hobbies. Seems like I'm constantly judging distances of things and seeing Y shaped objects everywhere I am. LolThank you all for the thoughts and kind words. I've learned that this shooting hobby is unlike any other outdoor hobby I've had in the past. The range is right there in my back yard. There's potential for true hunting usefulness with my slingshots. There's enough particulars about the sport that experimentation opportunities are excellent. Just so much to offer, and I built a nice target setup from scrap in our little shop.
Just a great hobby.
