Whatever Zatoichi! I'm calling shenanigans on that one. I heard no shamisen or shakuhachi.. A must for any blind slingshooter.

Just kiddin'. That was cool, man. I'm gonna try it with my pf. You inspired me again! Arigato!

Just tried it in the pool on a floating can. Hit on the third shot, but peeked between shots. I took ten shots total at 12-15 feet. Hard to do when the can is so quiet.. and moving. I'll try the spoon tomorrow. It just hangs there waiting to be spanked. Super cool idea, LGD!

Thanks pop,hrawk,Ray,eshot,Bean,Stevo..

@AJW... I am sure that smile turned into a laugh shortly after.. I have been told I am quite amuzing, like a clown

@Cap.. Glad that you were willing to try this out.. as with all of my vids,, It is a pleasure to watch others do it too.. especially there are more skilled people out there than I.
@treefork.. I have a feeling you will have that pebble in your hand for quite sometime... so feel free to put it down.. or better yet use it in your slingshot

@Imp.. I am flattered???


Thanks to you guys as well

I love trying anything with a slingshot. OTT,TTF, tubes, bands, distance shots, trickshots... but I fail at wingshooting and speedshots... I may beable to wingshoot if I had a target tossing assistant, but I am not designed to do multimotions quickly.. I am not a naysayer.. just aware of my ability limits..

How does it work? I'm not accusing you of faking, I DO believe you did this legitimately but I just don't get how..... Do you look at where the target is and then line up your arms until it feels right? In a way, it's both aiming and instinctive shooting, right?
Im Awesome... nuff said


seriously though I will get back with a response after work

OK, I just got back home... Its really simple actually.. that is if you practice practice practice..

First I would like to say that this is the distance that I normally do for most of my practicing, and I usually use smaller targets so my misses are usually tighter
.

Since I am an aimer, my body position is usually the same for each shot. so I concentrated on how my body felt when I aimed (without the blindfold). After a few hundred shots one tends to develop muscle memory. I already knew how my anchor felt, and where I place my feet.. so I figured if I increased the size of my target a bit and copied my stance/positon I should be able to hit the target..

after that... the rest is blindluck HA... (Im cheesy I know).

As for Charles` statement, it is actually the opposite,, since I do alot of night shooting, it helped with this.

I hope this helped, and doesnt diminish the entertainment of my video.

Thanks for asking
