    Hi my name is Nick, I have been interested slingshots on and off for most of my life, and have made a few over the years, but never anything particularly note worth, usually just made because I was bored and found some interesting materials. I am very interested in bushcraft though, and have been playing around with the slingbow idea quite a bit, my current one is based on a cheap ebay slingshot, with a bright orange paracord wrap and a key ring arrow support. Though I am planning on trying to make a self aligning pre-tensed one with a homemade whisker biscuit and RIS rails attached to it

    I live in a small town with a lot of countryside around it, but I really get time for anything more than a walk, I've also got quite alot of gear, most of it cheap stuff, or modified/homemade stuff, I like to test my creativity and any chance to save a bit of money or recycle something is never a bad thing, alcohol burners is a favourite of mine at the moment, I have mad 6 or 7 of them, without any of them being the same design, and have at least 30 cans in my kitchen for further developments, andhave made a few simple tools to improve production
