    I have found that I generally do not consider my slingshot shooting day complete until I get a can cut. That is assuming I have the time for more than a few quick shots and I am not shooting my BB shooter.

    What do you consider a complete shooting day?

    Any day where I pick it up, and the ball hits the can I'm aiming at. One out of 3, eh, ok, try tommorow. Two out of 3, ok, getting better. Three out of 3, all RIGHT, now we are getting someplace!

    On the down side, I'm 61, its -14 degrees below outside and 2 feet of snow that won't melt for another month.

    On the plus side, I'm warm and snug and can shoot slingshots, crossbows, blowguns and bb guns in my shooting room/ computer room anytime I feel like it.

    They are ALL good days, some just better than others.

    My shooting is so unstructured at the moment that just being out and firing off a few marbles is a joy. I get out at least 4 times a week and its usually just a wander through the woods picking sticks and branches to fire at and hopefully hit! I guess it doesn't feel complete until I've chosen at least one awkward target and made a solid hit.

    A good day of shooting is just getting the chance to go out and shoot. I've finally got my catchbox semi-usable, so I can start aiming at more consistent targets. Prior to that it was cans on the ground. Now the weather has turned substantially wetter so when I do get time, the weather is often not cooperating. Indoors is only possible with BB's, not the big stuff. I have yet to do my first can cut, but hope to give that a try in the near future.

    Since I have my portable catchbox done, I can shoot my 3/8 steel inside. I tend to bounce back and forth on my full size slingshots and my BB shooter.

    It's a great shooting day when I can actually find all of the ammo I shot.

    Any day I find time to shoot is a good day. I'm shooting in my garage mostly and it's cold.
    Don't even try to shoot inside my house - here and there I get a bad release and a wild shot that results in holes in my garage drywall. ;)

    Snader, please don't put up an avatar that doesn't involve beer. It just looks wrong.

    Good day of shooting - when you get to drink beer and then shoot the can!

    On holiday

    And set up a 5 10 15 and 20 metre shooting range in sunny dry conditions. No lost ammo. Perfect. And when I showed some friends what I was doing I didn't fluff the shots. Amazing.

    Considering the city ordinance here I haven't gotten to go shooting anything this winter but I do hope as spring comes on I can get out and shoot both bow and slingshot as well as get some throwing knife practice in as well.

    I have only had a few days to get out and shoot, since I got back into shooting when i joined the forum.

    Without much free time, I have to use some of it to build some shooters too.

    Hoping the weather gets warmer soon so my backyard workshop is usable again.

    Tried setting up a catchbox out back, but other houses are too close and had a stray marble end up across the street.
    There is a park nearby, gonna try that next.

    Right now a day to get out and shoot without snow up to my bum would be welcomed.

    Just got a capture target ordered. Hoping for some warm weather to get out and shoot.

    Any day I shoot I consider a complete shooting day. Although, I will be much more content when the weather warms up, and the snow is gone, as I love to wander in the woods. That may be awhile though, cause it's gonna snow again tomorrow!

    A good day is hitting the beer bottle cap with the first shot, then getting more hits than misses.
