Hello everyone, I am an American living in Canada. They are soooooooo strict on owning weapons of any type here in Canada. Back home in Florida I had guns and bows of every type. Canadians seem to get nervous when I say I miss my "toys", so I decided to go back to my first "toy", as it would not scare as many people. An old man taught me to shoot and make slingshots when I was around 10. By the time I was 12 or so he told me he thought that he had made a big mistake showing me how accurate they can be. Don't get me wrong, I don't and didn't kill anything indiscriminately, I ate everything I killed and still do. I did however give the ducks and dogs and gators around my home all kinds of grief with little stinging shots. Now, I just want to make a nice slingshot and see if I can get my young eye back...

Welcome to the forum. I have lived in Canada my whole life and have enjoyed most shooting sports... smallbore rifle, bigbore rifle, shotgunning, competitive handgunning, etc. Many areas in Canada still enjoy firearms, hunting and outdoor target shooting.

These days I seem to be drawn more to the slingshots. It's nice being able to toss some marbles in the basement during the winter months. I don't need hearing protection either...
