Default Hello from the land of moss and mildew

One of the endless list of things I never mastered as a kid, the sling shot. I don't know how I came across Joerg's vids, but storing energy in rubber is cool. And I happen to have .454 cal bullet mold for my black powder pistol. Not sure if my wrist and shoulder will stand up to much of this, may have to concentate on accuracy.

Welcome to the forum.

I have learned that you are never too old to start slingshooting.
I never had a slingshot in my youth ( i had a lot of other dangerous stuff though )
and now they control my thoughts

DUDE! Shooting slingshots and the PNW go together like coffee and donuts! Welcome from another Seattleite (since 2010).
