    When I saw a mention about a book last day, I remembered that some time ago I noticed these two books at amazon:<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=31&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/51g8vz10.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Slingshot-Shooting-Jack-H-Koehler/dp/0976531100" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Slingshot Shooting</a><br><br> and<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=32&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i42.servimg.com/u/f42/17/72/96/22/51-gmc10.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Slingshot-Sniper-How-Master-Shooting/dp/1477512268/ref=pd_sim_b_1" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Slingshot Sniper: How To Master The Art Of Slingshot Shooting </a><br><br>Anybody bought and would recommend? I personally don't know what to expect, but maybe I feel a little bit that by buying the book I would support the writer <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> However, I wouldn't want to buy a crap..

    I own Jack Koehler's book, it is a pretty good read. <br><br>I don't know Kenny Cannon's book, though.

    Kennys book is great if you have never shot a slingshot and want to learn one method for getting on target. His teaching is very specific to one style of shooting and his opinions are quite strong regarding anything outside his personal style of shooting.<br><br>Neither bad nor good, but by no means an authoritative text on slingshot shooting.<br><br>Kohlers book covers much more breadth as it regards the overall sport of catapultry. Cannons is specific to his method and his method alone.<br><br>If I had to recommend only one... Jack Kohler's book by a landslide!

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>That's right, I remember thatI read somewhere, thatthe Cannon's book concentrates on aiming with canted forks. I mean - it's not about the intuitive aiming, but the other way. Anyway, he promises some videos on youtube which might be interesting fo watch..<br><br>Btw. nice slingshot in your avatar!</span>
