    This is my first pfs!!! It is of my own design but it needs improvement on the lower handle part.<br>It is a laminated dark red meranti, plywood and light red meranti. Each one is 1 cm thick.<br>I got the wood from an old sunbed because this type of wood is commonly used for outdoor furniture. Light red meranti is easier to work with but has the same strength as the dark. <br>It is simply oiled and waxed. I hope you like it <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/DLRedMeranti/photo#1337959" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/1337959/800/p/1337959.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/DLRedMeranti/photo#1337964" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/1337964/800/p/1337964.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/DLRedMeranti/photo#1337973" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/1337973/800/p/1337973.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/DLRedMeranti/photo#1337981" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/1337981/800/p/1337981.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.slickpic.com/s/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/DLRedMeranti/photo#1337990" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://bulk-share.slickpic.com/album/share/DjRiNNLDAiAMNT/1337990/800/p/1337990.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Your own design which is a PF Shooter looks good Saderath. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_tongue.png" alt="tongue" longdesc="24"><br>Did you try it? I mean, did you try to band it and try shooting it to see whether it doesn't give fork hits?<br><br>Seems you haven't applied anything on it. nice finishing.

    <span class="postbody"><br>I wonder the same. How does it shoot? About fork hits, i use my PFS bottle opener almost every days. At the beginning i' ve shot my thumb with it using rocks. From that moment i started to twist the pouch 90% and never had a fork hit( thumb hit) again. I use marbles and 10 mm steel balls now.<br>I really like PF Shooters, now. New Convert from the ssf told me, when you start using one you wont stop anymore. In my case, he was right.<br>Almost forgot, yours looks awsome.</span>

    Thank you all for your comments!!! I feel honored to have received a comment by Joerg <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">!!! It is one of my every day shooters!!! I shoot it half-butterfly under my chin with a 90 degree angle, a 30 degree kink at the pouch and i point the forks towards the target using 10.5mm steel (this is the most comfortable way so far). I have also tried different ways of shooting but had 1-2 fork hits it being my first pfs but after practicing i can hit a 10 cm target at 6-7 meters consistently with no problems. Its a really nice pocket size shooter i take it with me when i go in the woods for walks. Thanks again!!!
