Texas Charlie gave me his slingshot today and I prize it very much. It is made out of 3/8 brass rod and here is a picture of it. He shot this one slingshot for about 25 years. He was a flip shooter that shot from the center of his chest with his arms going both ways and his release was immediate. He has killed thousands of Jack Rabbits and told me that the most he ever killed in one day was 49. He worked in the oil fields and the jacks would chew up wire insulation. His bands pulled over 30 pounds and he liked to shoot a variety of steel and iron pieces that weighed about 600 Grains. The two things he shot the most were 5/8 inch nuts and a 1/2 inch square by 1 inch long piece of iron that he got from worn out piston rings from large gas oil field engines. I have shot with him quite a bit and he was the most accurate flip shooter that I ever met. He also had the fastest release I ever saw with a slingshot. His pull and release was one motion. He is moving about 5 hours away from me and I will miss him. He is 84 years old and is moving to be near his family.
