    Is that beer can still alive and your ammo out? Do you miss the tree inside a Forest? Cant hit a barn from the inside?
    Let the Slingshot Channel Forum community (damn long name) help you.
    Also okay when you just wanna show off how good you are ;)
    Evry video posted here will help all :)

    Post a picture (better is a video) with your shooting, legs and and your head shoud be on it. Also helpfull is to see your target you shooting on.
    You will see! With a littel help you can be one of the best :)

    Shooting with green onions

    1745s looped are now too difficut for me to draw easily so I will drop the draw weight or go butterfly.

    What did you want to tell with this video? I can only see how quick you can shoot but not how you hold the pouch or the slingshot

    Nice shooting. In the second video you show a interesting way to pull the pouch :)

    Okay...

    Any handy hints? Cos I sure can't hit a bottle cap at twenty metres.

    Glad you ask :)
    So i think you hold the slingshot to long in drawn position! Pull and shoot right away. But i think its only the symptom of the problem. You over think the shot! Picture in your mind nothing but the target. Let your body do the job.
    Your form looks pretty good so far.
    No mayor mistakes!
    Its good that all you fingers of the left hand are open when you pull. Keep that up!

    Never forget when your form is perfect size and distance is irrelevant ;)

    Hope i coud help

    yes, and i think your best performance is with longer bands. Not shorter then 25 cm. My slings are equiped with 25 cm long and 1,5 cm wide blue therabands. Coins are no match for my Sling ;)

    First outing.

    Went out this morning. Video to follow. Had to shorten bands as tear developed at pouch. Some shots flew past catch. I changed target for a can as I couldn't even see it less hit it.

    Yea i tryed 20 meters to. I just hit it couse i knew where it is :D 20 cent are so small. But it took me about 10 fail shots befor i hit it!
    I think for the start you shoud find a spot you can hit it over 50 prozent of the time . Just to boost moral ^^

    Confidence is everything. And losing the amount of ammo I did was most disheartening. With a long aim I would at least hit the catch.

    Much as I appreciate the input is anyone else going to show and tell?

    Okay your release is not even! You need to open both side more evenly. Also you changed your foot work.
    What ammo do you use? I need evry month 1000-2000 new 8 mm steel balls. I like to shoot at weeeds at work.

    Also how do you like my new video about fast reloding?

    also did you see my flower challenge?
