G'day everyone thought I'd share this today. Yesterday I decided to try the butterfly shooting style because I found some long bands laying around. I have never tried this style before and couldn't really seem to find much useful information on YouTube etc. What I did find was that its mainly built off lots and lots of practice to form muscle memory. After 500ish shots yesterday I managed to hit the can around 50 times. I know that is a horrible stat but that's what happened. After this I decided to give it a break until today. This afternoon I was back at it again and actually managed to find somewhere for my draw hand to go and it felt more comfortable upon release than it did yesterday. After 110ish shots I had managed to hit the can over 80 times, which is much better than yesterday considering the amount of total shots. At around 95ish shots on the actual can and it finally split in half. I was using 6mm steel so it took a very long time to cut the can. I would have used some 9.5mm steel but I found it scary and the thought of a big ball hitting me in the side of the face didn't tick my boxes. I will continue to practice with this style and once I'm comfortable enough I'll move to the bigger steel but at the moment 6mm is fine. :D

It's pine I carved it from a pretty decent sized fork so the grain is fairly nice. I have a torque and many others like Dankung, GZK etc. But I really like this natural as I carved out grooves for myself.

WOW, never would have guessed Pine, beautiful though.
I do a good bit of carved finger grooves myself, so like that feature a lot
