Shooting slingshots has got to be one of the most rewarding hobbies I have ever participated in. When I go out to shoot I pick a target that challenges me, but I also so grab a couple of cans???? ???????? After reading one of the post about using a Sling, I decided to check a couple of sling YouTube channels out. I can see where becoming proficient with a sling could be extremely difficult. That’s when I thought of several conditions that affect the learning process of slingshots also. If your just plinking around, it’s more than likely laid back, no mental pressure. But what if you had to depend on your ability to provide food with that slingshot. Rufus Hussy, comes to mind, as someone who depended on his accuracy with a slingshot for food. You can practice accuracy, but. to control your mental aspect of shooting you almost have to be in a situation such as a tournament. I’ve got a couple of friends that thrive on what I call high pressure shots. They tell me when they are in that type of situation such as taking the final shot, they see nothing but the ammo hitting the intended target. There was a post one time on “Target Panic” which I definitely could relate to. I feel like the older I get the more I am able to control my nervousness, or maybe because my accuracy is improving.
