If it is the nail it will just take time for it to heal. Meanwhile put a plastic finger splint on it and tape it so you can keep shooting without shooting your thumb directly again. Figure out where you went wrong. Never put your thumb in the center of the forks. Dont ever shoot hex head nuts. Much better to shoot yourself with a smooth round object.

No, It wasn't my form that was wrong. I did something so incredibly stupid all of you guys are immediately going to yell at me, but I was practicing ninja-rolling while slingshoting. Yeah, it was dumb.

I am actually laughing thinking about you doing slingshot; tuck, roll, and shoot,Ninja style. And the only thing you can hit is your finger. Hilarious!!!

What makes it funnier is if you are married, explaining the extra large thumb and imagining the look on your wife's face, how ridiculous she thinks you are for playing Ninja. While in front of your wife, chagrin is on your face, though deep inside you are happy as a kid with a popsicle dripping down his fist on a summers day. Oh yeah!!!

Ha! even though I think it's hilarious and you deserve to have a sore thumb for a week, because I have a soft spot for Ninja and the martial arts, I will pass on some ancient Roman knowledge; Yarrow root, spit on it, crush it and wrap your thumb in it. It should heal in a couple or three days.
Bye, respect the elders.

Since you are going into some unusual configurations you may consider shortening your band so that you are more likely to line everything up and shoot with barnetts plastic shot untill you can start getting clean shots. Shooting yourself can be very serious so im not laughing and shooting someone or a pet or somthing can have a very bad outcome. Use caution. Slingshots are not toys.
