Yup I've been shooting slingshots for about 18 years (since I was 6) and I thought I was a pretty good shot, always shot cans and pine cones out off trees for practice. And do a lot of hunting with my catty. Shot paper for the first time ever yesterday just to see how my grouping was.......man it needs a lot of work lol. So yes I'm definitely gonna start practicing on paper.

But I wonder if it's a bit of a mind thing shooting paper? Because I can cut cards and light matches, but had a hard time with the paper.

I shoot paper quite a bit and it is humbling. It can become tedious however, so I introduced a variant: ' negative paper.' Occasionally I'll just cut a one or two inch hole in the center of the paper plate and hang a can behind it. It's a great focusing drill, and there's a certain entertainment quality to how it changes your perception. Hearing the can ring while the plate remains unscathed is uniquely satisfying. Give it a go if you can... :)
Man that's a brilliant idea! Definitely going to do that.
