    Beautiful, as always. So, this is the next evolution- a partial finger groove? Is it an improvement to performance over the last one?

    And good job finding time to build with all of the kids running around.

    I think you are a celebrity on the forum too. I really like the way the wood looks and the simple shape make for a nice looking shooter. Great job

    Way to go Arturo! :) :) go to the mountain with the pile of holy cans and broken bottle tops and you will find "Arturo PFS GURU" :) He will show you how to gain skills in the art of the PFS! :)

    The new shooter is awesome!!!!!!

    I was thinking, "Only the pinkie and the ring." I suppose that is because I like to point. You are doing very well Sir. Looking for the next one.

    Yup, this is the really interesting thing here!

    Well, apart from the consistantly accurate shooting and lovely graining on the frames of course ;)

    Less is more
    Is what comes to my mind immediately when i see this Plinker.

    It´s like an Egg...it easy to make something complicated beautiful, but it´s really a task to make things that don´t have anything more they need.

    Really good focussed!
