Welcome to the forum! As far as your slingshots go, they're incredible. Both of the aluminum shooters look sleek, sophisticated (And sexy). The wooden handled slingshot also looks fantastic. If I were you, I'd be proud to own them.

The one with a bull motif reminds me of one I saw on another forum. If you recognise my username, drop me a PM.

Nice! I especially like the oak one. Are the pieces of metal (aluminum I'm guessing) epoxied into the oak?

That's what I was wondering about. Sounds like they're in there good and secure. Thanks for the info.
