Made this one yesterday. Flirting with new designs and sizes. Same dimension on the forks as the last pocket shooter I made, but the handle is about 1/2" longer, and a tad fatter. I'm starting to get more partial to the pocket shooters.

That's a nice looking fork, what does it shoot like?
Martin.
It shoots good, but once every 15 shots or so, I get a wild one. I'm pretty sure it's because I didn't make the fork tips wide enough. It's still very accurate, I just have to make sure the band is evenly distributed over the tips when I shoot. I need to start making my cuts wider than what I want, so I can sand away material.

For sure, another fine one Jim. Like the one I obtained from you.
Yup...same material. I cured the periodic, wild shot too. I had one of the bands mounted crooked. Just shot around 60 shots, and no wild shots.
