    Hi everyone, <br><br>I recently stumbled across one of Jorgs videos and have been fascinated ever since. I used to have slingshots when younger (commercial black widows, pro diablos). I teach martial arts so have always been fascinated with weapons, but never really projectile firing devices. I am now hooked <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> in just under one month I have bought over 10 slingshots, made 3 and already making my own bands and pouches. Now just need to get better <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> although am learnig very fast, largely thanks to the wealth of information offered up by the slingshot community with of course Jorg being at the forefront.<br><br>I feel always in your debt.<br><br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">

    Thanks guys <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> the slingshots I made were very basic, stick shooter, pickle fork midget (i made from handle of broken slingshot) and natural Y fork. Have been buying second hand ones like crazy on e-bay before I commit to a really nice one, want to find out what suits me best. Also modified two to fire arrows, nothing fancy just using paracord and leather pouch with extra holes in it, worked very well though.

    Hello Alpha. Nothing is better than a self made slingshot(or modified). Even if it don't shoot really well the satisfaction i get from doing something myself is a good feeling. Waiting to see your slingshots soon.
