Hey guys...I used to make my own slingshots back when I was youngin from ftree branch forks. Used to chop down and again always in search of a perfect staight fork. I remember going to the bike shops and using the tubes(tire tubes) and cutting the strands. Good ol' days. Just getting back into shooting after 26 years of break. LOL

Yep Bob! Dankungs currently and slowly tring others soon. I want to get back to bulding from tree forks. Now atleast theraband is available and don't have to find tire tubes like I did in the 70s.

There was no steel shots where I come from.We used rocks! The aim was to find round rocks. That took time.

I learned to make a sling shot from a Mau-Mau member. You can google them.

Martin,

It's going really good. I can't believe for my very first board cut!


I'll post some pics in two days when complete. I'm using a sealer on it - 2 coats.

I'm taking some more time sanding it properly. Stay tuned for the pics.

Regards and a BIG THANK YOU!
Peresh.

Hi, hope you have a good time; I'm relatively new to the whole thing, never really being interested before, it must be really exiting to feel that elastic crack again?
