    <div>I had a band set I was testing out with some gum rubber, real thin, one broke off after some tests and I ended up with this after attaching another pouch and folding the rubber through the first one.<br><br>This thing is great to shoot indoors with any small ammo and even marbles to a point. It's only powerful enough for a marble to dent dry wall at full draw! lol!<br><br>This thing is great fun tho! I got a DGUI style flat strap shooter from the memorial auctions for Jaybird, and this is pretty much a smaller version that you aim with the tip of your finger, accurate?

    "Finger shooter" could end up being a very appropriate name for that if you get my meaning.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>nah. try it. Now the strap shooter? That thing hurts like hell.<br><br><br>If you dont loop it around the tip of your finger it may have the chance to hit you dependent on how you do it, but its too easy to flip with a twitch of the index finger , I found going over the top of the finger like I shown is accurate as hell and no finger hits.<br><br>All it takes to flip this is a very slight adjustment in the forearm I think, but it's almost imperceptible ...</span>

    Does it actually stay on your finger when you shoot, or does it fly off along with the ammo?

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>yeah it stays on 97% of the time, the other 3 % is when it's too loose on the finger <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"></span>

    Cool. The reason I asked is because I thought if it had troubles with flying off, you could always attach a piece of leather strip or paracord to the finger loop long enough that you could hold it in the shooting hand.

    i use office bands, indeed some tb(G) would do much better, now i shot about 15 meters but i think that tbg would double that

    Give your finger nail a straight cut or a slight bit concave cut next time, and see if it works better. It should stay on the finger.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Great idea. I have an old Howard Hill glove that's way too stiff for the weight bows I shoot. Maybe I'll try modding it into a finger shooter. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"></span>
