    I was expecting my New Year slingshot and Dankung tubes to arrive today, as stated by the shipping tracker. According to the latest info it left the sorting facility on Asheville, NC on the 30th. It was scheduled to arrive today, but still no update.

    I'm anxious to receive my new toy and try out my loop-tube shooter.

    Is there a picture of said catapult and maybe an action shot with you too?

    I must say I am very impressed with the Maxim, it is a great shooter with the looped-tubes. It is large enough for my hands, yet small enough to fit in my back pocket.

    Those are both a nice start (I have a Scout myself), but you need some wood in that collection my man! Hopefully those new rasps and files will get some use soon :)

    I am becoming a fan of the Chinese loop-tubes. I have been more than impressed with the Maxim. I think I like it a bit more than my Scout.

    I may need to find some proper multiplex before I can add a wooden shooter to my collection. I also need to pick up different types of sandpaper and learn to deal the wood when I'm done.

    I´m pretty busy atm, but I just had a vision (about standing in our post office..)

    North America is a very poor continent concerning decent plywood.

    My calculations revealed that on a hot summer day, using 538 layers of TBG at
    a 927 yard draw length, a package of 220 lb Multiplex can be delivered to
    one state of the US of A in rd. 87 minutes. Which state exactly depends
    on the winds, and on the angle..

    :)

    Well, with those rasps and files, you've got about all you need to make a natural shooter. Do you have any decent hardwood trees in your area? No need to wait for that multiplex, go ahead an baptize those new tools!

    I've had a tougher time finding decent multiplex than I thought. When you do find it, you seem to pay a premium for it. I'll be looking forward to your TBG powered multiplex delivery system. Just remember when you fire the piece that you need to factor the difference between true and magnetic north in calculating your aiming vector. I do like your delivery times though, you should get plenty of business.
