    I am glad to hear that you are recovering! Ribs can be nasty things to injure.
    Great shooting, you must really keep that path nice and smooth with so many trips to hang new targets! :D

    [​IMG] Thank you for the recovery update, Arturo! Super happy to hear those positive vibes are working.

    You sure were mutilating bottle caps today. Outstanding shooting as always!

    I also love the courtyard where you are shooting. Very lovely and peaceful environment for outdoor time. Birds singing. Shade trees. Stone masonry. Purple house... Looks like a little slice of heaven to me.

    Is this some kind of bottlecap extinction-campaign?
    Very soon, no one will be able to close their bottles... :D

    Very glad you are back in buisness, Arturo!

    next cards will be with a rigid attachment to grant the cut, I hope

    Oh so close!!
    Great shooting though!
    I was thinking about the problems with the card attachment, and it occurred to me that a second clamp from the bottom of the card to the ground (perhaps even tied to that handy stone?) might add just the right amount of rigidity to allow the cards to cut easier.

    I like your shooting style. Is this slingshot a magic slingshot?

    Wahoooooo Arturo my friend......incredible shooting as always. I didn't get a full cut up to now. I had a couple of partial cuts, the maximum was 80% with 8mm steel in a distance of approx. 15 ft. I think I have to look for better cards before I try it again. I am totally clueless how you manage to cut a card with the 3'rd shot at 33ft! Really amazing. May I ask you about your current setup?

    Hello my friend flicks ... I've ordered better cards (I hope, more expensive), this ones are cheap chinese very flimsy, no more than 1 of 5 attempts succeed cutting this cards this way hanging the wire, a rigid holder will improve results ... the current setup I am using in your slingshot is 18mm x 12mm x 28cm Cando latex composite about 30% more pull force than TBG (but it elongate less, only to 4.5, +/-125cm draw), with 10mm steel balls, I believe that 8mm is not enough to cut ...
    Cheers

    Almost recovered. That's exiting news, Arturo! Very happy to hear this.

    Super shooting as always! Okay, so your 'perfection' was less than perfect. Hmmm… I might have to give this one some deeper thought. :p

    But I'm pretty sure it was the card's fault. [​IMG]

    BTW, I think this might be my favorite video Arturo. I got to see more of your lovely shooting range. And I really love that beautiful purple house. But I just don't know why... [​IMG]
