    Time to have another go! Who's in? :D

    Everyone that participates must be able to send the package at the decided time
    -Only homemade slingshots (Not a modded commercial model or something like that)
    -No braces
    -Do your best
    -Trades are A to B, B to A, C to D etc.

    About the rubber. It's of course the best if everyone recieves a slingshot with a bandset, but local laws might make it a problem to post them that way. I think it is up to the reciever to decide if he wants the bands attached, in the same package but not attached, or sent in a different package.

    I'd say we don't need any specs for the bands. Just send it with the bands you would be comfortable to shoot! Everyone do not have TheraBand *cough* me *cough*, but that is part of the fun with the trade; to test other things. Both slingshots I have recieved trough trades so far were a different shooting experience for me. Last time I got the chance to test tubes, for example.

    Oh, but dont use bicycle inner tubing for the bands!

    And remember the key-part of the trade: Beer! No wait, I meant fun! :D

    I'm IN!



    If he doesn't want to give your home address to the web ask if you can have it sent to his job.

    How about a week(2?) or so for people to sign up, that will take us to the end of August. A month for everyone to build then ship on the first of October?

    Sign me up for this one. I'm already excited.

    The timeline sounds great Flipgun--good idea you had for Doom too, with the address thing.

    I think I'll go with metal... *sounds of gears slowly starting to turn


    I work graveyard shift, don't tell Will what I'm drinking right now....

    Haaahhha : Sounds fine :) First week of october for starting the delivery? Do you mind if mine slingshot is not made from wood or steel? Not paper for sure but printed. Or(and) an ammo pouch? If it's ok, I'm in too.

    How do we select the B person? Kinda lottery :) ?

    :Beer:

    Well, this is the Slingshot Forum. Can't have a thread without someone mentioning beer :rolleyes: :D

    Glad to have you with us!

    Metal sounds great... And I suppose your drinking milk. What else? :D

    Sounds good!

    Excellent! Maybe if someone else wants to trade "just" forks we could fix it so you two trade?

    Too bad... Well, then you have to make sure to join next time! :)

    Printed slingshot sounds awesome! Welcome aboard :)
    B-person (And A person :rolleyes: ) is selected with a lottery.

    Haha, sorry TP! :p
