    Recently I looked into a climbing shop and I bought an eight descender on sale for $ 5.<br>I wanted silver, but they had only orange. does not matter.<br>At home I have some rubber sets for Barnet, Barnet slingshot, but already I do not have. <br>I thought that I could use those rubber.<br><br><img src="http://img20.imageshack.us/img20/9569/zklad.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/4017/hotovos.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img252.imageshack.us/img252/6797/detailj.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>I think it will shoot well, rubber is quite strong. But I have to wait a few days, I just hit stone my hand and I can not firmly hold the slingshot.

    That is awesome! I mean I would have never thought to do that, but now that you have it seems obvious. It looks like it was made for that. I may just have to make one for my self. Very smart idea.

    Too bad I can't find one online for $5. I spent my last extra cash on the material for my taurus project.

    Thanks, everyone has an opinion one way or the other on the beard. Very few people seem to be neutral. It's actually a little longer than that now. For every inch it grows I gain more and more superhuman power.

    I've had some sort of facial hair most of the time since I was about 15. It can be a little annoying when it's first growing out, but once you start getting a little length it isn't so pokey anymore. Actually it begins to feel like part of your face to the point that it feels very strange when you cut it off. It's kind of like a security blanket.

    Hmm nice design! Would it have been possible to run flat bands through the inside of the large ring so that you wouldn't have to cut it? Or is it necessary for bands to run over the top?

    Let the great circle on the whole it is not possible. I shoot, flip style, and ammunition would hit the top of the circle, dangerous!<br><br>For flat bands I have a similar slingshot, which I made some time ago.<br><br><img src="http://img528.imageshack.us/img528/3863/p5011157p.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    I would say attaching the bands through the forks would be possible without cutting the top off, but shooting through such a tiny hole I would think that fork hits would be a major problem. Plus you would have to add something on in order to attach them. There is a really old commercial slingshot that uses an enclosed circle like that. I think it was called the Scope or something. Milbro sells a reproduction.

    The slingshot looks very cool. The 8Decender 1 also looks very good for flatband, two different cool ideas. <br><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">

Looks like motorist poet. If you apply natural aloevera gell on your skin and beard, it will become more good. Aloevera also cures skin of itching.</span>
