Hey Jeff,

From reading your posts you are a good shot! I would love to see everyone on the forum at a tournament together. It seems like it would be a great time as well as seeing what a more expansive representation of quality shooters brings to a tournament.

I wouldnt say i was a great shot ha ha, that rabbit was only 10yard away, dont think it expected someone wacking it from out of a car window ha ha, but them squirrels are not that easy,
i can shred a tin can from 15 yards, but a comp im not that good, ha ha, jeff

Wow that is a really good lookin slingshot you have there. And boy do i love to see hunting pics. Where did you hit the rabbit head/ body. I have not made myself a slingshot yet, too busy. But i do hope to get some squirrels one day with a homemade slingshot like you jeff. Great hunting
, do you have any slingshot hunting tips for squirrels, squirrels here are really shy.

I got the squirrels with that band and a 8mm steel ball, but i used a band Martin sent me a while back it 3 layers of pink latex bands, dont know the thickness, and a 1/2 lead ball for the rabbits, and yes its a cracking slingshot, i love it, jeff

I made the palm swell separately, when I was happy with the fit I epoxied it in place and carefully cleaned and polished it.

Thanks for the write up Jeff, I'm happy that you like it and hope you continue to shoot well with it.
Cheers Martin
