    Hey Mike! I did the same thing. I'm probably gonna try to build my first "regular" slingshot this coming weekend. Hoping to build my first slingbow before too long. :)

    Hi Mike,

    You will find here everything for a fine start! Have to recommend to look around Amazon or similar sites for slingshooting related books too. For the first attempt the best you can do is to understand how rubber works and basic slingshooting techniques and physics. If you pick up this basic knowledge you will find building a slingshot is not just easy and fun, but satisfying at the same time. More preparation and planning means less work and less error :)

    Welcome :beer:

    Welcome!

    Always room for another Mike :)

    Don't be surprised if your first ss tuns into a collection of them...

    Hi Mike, i'm new as well but I can tell you there are super nice people here and its all positive. Much like you, Joergs videos are what compelled me to make a ss, now I've found out it's a social disease:D. One will turn into many.
