    The mirror is a great idea! I was actually feeling tension, I really wanted you to cut those cards! Very exciting and, as always, great shooting! That cut was perfect!

    Amazing Arturo. A card cut with the second shot! It is just a question of time until you get 2 and more cuts.:cool:

    Very nice, Mr.Arturo!!! As Will said, I got the tension mood on waiting for more cuts!!! I'd probably hit the mirror trying this (wich would be amazing on a slow motion camera, but somehow very expensive)
    Any news of the package?

    Thanks guys !
    @Will, very true, with an early cut the tension increases ... I need to work that and slow down anxiety ...
    @flicks ... ha LOL that's my goal, 2 cuts, more would be a dream, very tough shooting ...
    @Brazilviking, no news yet, Correos de Chile is on strike ...
    @xXdoomXx, my rib is slowly evolving, it will last a while, less pain but always a background reminder that some things are repairing inside ...
    @FIAAO, very rudimentary setup, I am not good (and lazy) crafting things LOL ...
    Cheers

    Just don't shoot the cat!:D
    Seems that you need new bands!
    You got lucky to not get hit on the face! It happened to me last week with a band tear! Quite a slap!
    Keep trying, Mr.Arturo! You will make it! Perhaps you need a new slingshot for luck? Something customized?;)

    Our neighbor's cat got shot by a BB gun, that was a surprise, I can't imagine mortally injuring a pet!

    Oh no, "Chimu" (the cat) is my lovely pet as your Patela but feline, she is very intelligent, curious and a great hunter ...
    as I taper the bands usually breaks near the pouch and don't give face slaps, but never say never LOL !
    ha ha another slingshot ... my friend thinks that I turned a mad collector LOL !

    I envy your yard and am impressed by your ability. I would miss the catchbox at 33'. Bravo.
