I've only been shooting slingshots for a little under a year, but I can tell you what I learned. The Scout XT is a bit larger than the Scout LT, and supports the hammer grip, the thumb-supported grip, and the pinch grip. It might work better for you than the Scout LT. Another possibility, like SJAaz mentioned. is the Hathcock Target Sniper from PocketPredator.com, although that slingshot mainly supports pinch grip. Once you decide on a frame, I really like what SJAaz said. Get to know it thoroughly; different bandsets, ammo weight, etc.; and then you can branch out and have more than you can shoot like we have. Like the man said, it IS a great hobby!
