    I'm Daniel. I'm 33 and I live in Kemah, Texas. I have many hobbies and interests. I used to shoot slingshots when I was much younger. I had not picked up a slingshot in years until recently upon seeing Joerg's videos on youtube. I'm most interested in rubber powered crossbows and other such weapons. I've been shooting guns all my life. I used to shoot rifles competitively and have a couple medals to prove it. :D So I am most fascinated at the idea of making rubber powered guns which are practical, fun, and of course lethal if needed. Also, I am interested in exploring other uses for rubber such as rubber powered machines, ect. That could be a lot of fun to tinker with. I look forward to sharing ideas with everyone.

    Welcome to SSC! You'll find lots of info here about all those different gun-style slingshots.

    Welcome to the forum thegreyfox! I also got sucked back in to slingshots via Joerg's channel. I'm sticking with slingshots for now, but I think a slingbow or crossbow will be in my plans down the road.

    I too was sucked back into slingshots by Jörg's channel. For now I have a Trumark wrist rocket and I bought a slingbow that can still shoot steel balls as well. I also have plans to pick up a traditional style (or more) and try my hand at building my own.

    Welcome. I got sucked back into slingshots by my brother (bigdh2000). He said I was the shooter in the family and that, if he was going to build them, I was going to have to learn how to shoot them. Being a horrible slingshot shooter as a kid, I spent many hours on YouTube learning. I practiced a ton too. I found Bill Hays' videos helpful in learning how to easily shoot accurately. He isn't as entertaining or charismatic as Joerg, though. :) He also tends to be "rough around the edges", as a lot of Texans are (no offense), when he gets on forums like these. :) But he has some great info and is clearly a very accomplished shooter and builder.

    WELCOME! Especially welcome to a fellow tinkerer! I too am constantly trying to make things "better" and "Hey, what ELSE can we use this for....."
