    Hy,

    Some days ago I thought about building a slingshot, that shoots over the fist.
    On my research I found "The Gloveshot". But it wasn´t, what I had in mind.
    So I went down to my Garage an startet building my idea.
    It should have been a Gloveshot without a wrist-brace.
    Instead of that my modification is pressing against the knuckles.
    It is perfectly adapdet to them and it is surprisingly comfortable to hold.
    I am very satisfied with it.
    I made it from 18mm Multiplex and it shoots very well so far.
    The red stuff is some foam-rubber to make it smoother.
    It´s my second built, and it took me just about 2-3 hours.

    I was thinking of building something very similar but was worried it may fall under the UKs knuckle duster laws. Looks very cool, I like it :)

    That looks like it will work!

    I gave up on gloveshots because of the nasty handslaps though.
