Hi everyone<br><br>I've been 'into' sling shots pretty much since my childhood, but have only really found that this is a serious hobby over the past year <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>I'm a self confessed DanKung fanboy but am starting to get out on my own, and hope to get making some of my own slingshots soon- plenty of inspiration here <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>ATB <br><br>Dave

nope, I'm not lucky enough to be able claim any Native American heritage, as far as I know I'm at least 5 generations Welsh on both sides of the family <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>the handle is was given to me by my friends after camping out one night in the before a day long Airsoft game years ago in an abandoned underground bunker complex near Drakelow in the UK... I'd managed to frighten someone coming into the complex the morning before the game, when asked what all the noise was, it was said that my snoring and sleep talking was louder than a bear, in fact louder than all 3 bears and goldilocks put together, the name has stuck ever since - i go by 3bears now on any forum I join <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">

I'll admit I'm not too keen on some of the fancier ones but I do love my warrior <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> it's probably my favourite one to shoot if I'm lucky I might get to compare it to a winning cougar or panther lol
