Default Wine holder thumbshot

Have you ever had one of those moments where you can see a potential slingshot anywhere? It's a perfect sign of the addiction of slingshots! Anyway, saw this simple little wine holder and did what had to be done, tapered bands and a mini pouch. Perfect little plinker

Brilliant a slingshot that demands that you drink

And once you have finished drinking you have an empty bottle to use as a target. Win/win

And at that moment it will be very unlikely that he hit the target. But I guess a crushed window gives quite a satisfaction too

Nice idea!!!

as for the drinking part, I think that's really good if you want a real challenge, drink one bottle of wine and then try to hit the bottle from 10 meters

That looks fun, it would be cool to see a slingshot made from wine bottle corks. Possibly with a thin aluminum frame with hollowed out corks going along it. Somebody needs to get a video of that challenge.

Tchiihihihihihhiii.... brilliant! Sounds like a good companion for our Chilean sharpshooter. A pity I am more into the beery aiming waters...

Brilliant. And I see you used a cheese cracker for the pouch, too!
