Definitely a sling that can shoot anything.
I like it very much and the orange color.
The rubber,how is attached on the front?

That finish looks great. Seems like a very versatile shooter.

I had to change the band attachment. I tried the "British matchstick" method and we didn't get along. So, I ground grooves under both holes and now put the band through and loop it under the bands.

Yes, that's my TARDIS. No, you can't "borrow" it.
