Hey everybody!!! I just thought I would let you all have an early sneak peek at two new shooters that will soon join the A+ lineup. The ones pictured are both made of fabulous Red Oak. The one on the right is my new "Hiker" Series w/ inset compass shown here in the PS-1 size. I most likely will offer to add the compass to any frame as an upgrade extra. It's diminutive companion on the left is my new "BB Shooter" made with the same unique styling and design that characterizes all A+ Slingshots. Don't let it's size fool you....it's an amazing little shooter if I do say so myself. It uses tapered theraband gold power bands and will zip a BB completely through a soda can. I will be selling these paired with the marksman speed loader pictured below. Can you imagine all the plinking fun you can have with this tiny, powerful "BB Shooter" and a 1000 BB's. To me this is the ultimate in "Pocket Shooter" fun!!!
Have a great day everybody!!! Get out and shoot some slingshots!!!

ZDP I've got to say IMHO your wrong on this one all the way around bud.

Placing the compass in the other side of the finger hole does not work aesthetically for me or practically. The pinkie hits the backside of the compass and interferes with a good grip. It just doesn't look or feel right to me, thus it's in the location it is.
I also believe there is a definite untapped albeit, maybe a niche market (like all slingshots) for a "proper" BB ONLY shooter. I have spent the last two months designing and perfecting this shooter. To shoot BB's effectively without damage to the bands you need a specially designed matched set that balances latex weight and weight of a BB.

As far as it being stumpy, it is on purpose to fit "within" the hand, it maybe looks funny, but feels about as right as a tiny shooter can. The middle or ring finger this time goes in the hole. As for not needing a fork, the pouch and projectile does go through more than one might think, or fork hits would not be possible on an "over the top" slingshot, yet experience shows it is very much possible. It doesn't need much, but a little is preferable and just looks right.

It's easy Dan you just try real hard and believe!!!!
No seriously, I'm really just and inventor, artisan and slingshot enthusiast who knows who will like anything I make. To be honest I'm still amazed and pleased that so many do!!!

How about I'll kick you off with a pre-order for the BB shooter when they're shipping.
Thanks Z........you've got it. Actually...I want to send it to you in appreciation for the wonderful write up you did for my PS-1.

Ok... so here's the true final version of my NEW BB (only) Shooter. I've added it to my website. The cost will be $25.00 (INTRODUCTORY SPECIAL) complete with band set and Marksman Speed Loader full of BB's as shown in the bottom picture.
Notice that after test shooting it for several weeks with my teenage sons, I have added a milbro style thumb divot for increased security. It can be held several different ways, but I find this the best. It is an amazing little shooter!! This time the grip hole is for the middle or ring finger. Use the thumb divot or high grip with index and thumb on the forks, either way It's PURE PLINKING FUN!!!
