Just wanted to say hello and register for the SOG multi tool give away! I used to shoot sling shots as a boy. (In my 50's now!) I recently purchased a Crossman sling shot to scare away buzzards that were lighting in my trees. It is not legal to shoot them with a firearm here in Virginia so they have over populated and are making a nusance of themselves! My next door neighbor left some trash in his back yard, and one bird was feasting on some flesh and bones from the trash. I went down and bought a new Crossman sling shot, came home and fired a 3/8" hex nut at the bird. I did not even come close on the first shot. I followed up with another hex nut and hit within a few feet. That was enough to make the bird take wing. Since then, four of the buzzards have been coming back to a tall oak in my yard. I bought some small glass marbles and have taken a couple of shots. It was just enough to get the birds to fly away.<br>I see them circling every couple of days, but they don't roost in my trees anymore. This is a good thing as I have a small, old beagle (dog) that lays in the back yard on sunny days. I don't want the birds to swoop down and harrass her.<br>I did not know it was so easy to make your own slingshot. I have learned so much by watching the videos that have been posted Youtube! Thanks so much for posting these! This is a great channel and I really appreciate the work that you have done!<br>Sincerely,<br>Jake

I recently made a how-to video for how to make a natural moorhammer, maybe you want to check it out? <img src="" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><a href="" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HERE (link)</a>
Moorhammer? Never heard of that before, but then I don't get out much. Thanks Jake
