    Hello Joerg, hello Forumists!<br><br><br>I'm 26, I'm from Romania, and I'm mainly here for slingshot crossbows - just love the idea.<br>I used to shoot slingshots as a small boy, mainly made from Y shaped branches and strips of inner wheel bicycle tubing. I was incredibly accurate back then, accuracy I seem to have completely lost by now. And no, it does not come back with training.<br>I am interested in slingshot crossbows mainly for their accuracy, I want to use them for target shooting, which I also do with my slingshots.<br>I have made some "conventional" slingshots too, and will probably continue making, but i just cannot seem to be accurate enough with them, especially when i shoot butterfly style. So, slingshot crossbows - here I come!<br><br><br>Ow, and yes, Joerg and his channel are behind my renewed interest in slingshots. Thank you Joerg for reminding me that the child inside me is still very much alive, child which I seem to have neglected a bit lately. <br><br><br>Best regards!

    hey there, welcome to the forum.Im half romanian myself, on my mothers side.If you want to imrove your aim , i would sugest you try shooting thumb and index finger support slingshots, that worked for me.I was too better at shooting when i was younger, and was totaly crap when i started again a month ago, but since then i have improved a lot (not as good as when i was a kid, maybe theres something about that age).

    <span class="postbody"><br>if you would compare your improvements in accuracy with someone aged 25 or something over a period of 6 months you will significantly see that you have improved faster ( that is if you dont have motoric problems)</span>

    Hello and welcome. I shoot sideway and thats how i am more accurate. But i still a bad shooter. If i shoot at a can from 7 m i get 4 hits on 10. That' s, maybe, because i am not a child anymore but i keep practice <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cry.gif" alt="Crying or Very sad" longdesc="11">. I shoot on targets, never hunt, it is just the fun i got when shooting that makes me love slingshots.<br>Cheers, Red.

    <span class="postbody"><br>that your no longer a child only means you have to practise a little harder and hey you know what improves your aiming, if you hang the can on the string and make it move with a fan or something and then shoot at the moving target</span>
