    While I have a measure of health I'm thinking of getting a bronze moorhammer.
    It costs a packet (£72)
    It weighs a ton (820g)
    I still love my pocket thunder
    I can't justify it at all.
    And yet:
    It's beautiful (Gollum voice)
    There's a psalm which says He gives me strength to draw a bow of bronze which appeals to my quirky soul.
    I am indebted to Joerg for fuelling a hobby which has given me hours of joy and satisfaction
    So.
    Can anyone talk me out of my foolishness?
    Lend me one for a week?

    Can't help ya sir. I'm in the same boat with another unjustifiable toy myself. I have been putting it off, while saving my spare change and such. When I get my taxes I'm gonna grit my teeth and pull the trigger. Good Luck with your decision.

    Hey Jim,

    Do it like Juggalo did ... get drunk...order it and be surprised when it arrives,
    because you did not remember ordering it :D

    Premeditated amnesia

    I remember that! . I would need the alcohol equivalent of a living will so that I could remember to do what I was trying to forget to have done

    Hey Jim!

    your will is my command!

    Forget that Monster!


    It´s one of the most beautiful and desirable Slingshots one can think of, true!

    BUT:

    It sucks! It´s way too heavy to be used for shooting.

    And it´s "cold".


    The price is decent, imho - if it´s just about having it - go buy it!


    Yet if you ask if it makes "sense" to buy it - A clear NO.


    One buddhist aspect I really love to use to get things clear is this question:

    What´s the most positive emotion you will get from "having" that thing?

    Is it the joy and bliss of being united with it?

    Or is it to finally be released from suffering from being seperated from our desired object?


    ;)


    kind regards,

    Be

    The tension deepens

    Be. Cold. That one really got me.
    DH. For old times sake. We're talking emotion. The heart has reason that reason knows not.
    Don't think about it you want it so get it. Not convincing it has to be said.

    My parents used to say see if you want it in three months time....consider it.

    My ideal would be borrow one and if it passes the Be test buy one.

    Do Pro Shot do short term rentals?

    Hey Jim! I'd go for it. In my opinion, worst case scenario is you hate shooting it and it becomes a nice decoration you love looking at. Best case scenario, you got yourself a heck of a mighty zombie hunter.

    The sling has brought money into my possession unsought and unasked. It crouches at the door of my heart desiring to have me.

    Oh just the old 30 to 45 mm steelballs.
    Juggalo does it way better than I do though.
    I'm a tourist.
