    <font color="darkblue">Hi Again,<br><br>I mean advice on the best type of slingshot for my needs, of getting rid of some small pests.<br><br>Ranges will be close, across ,my street, as in 5 meters max.<br>Although I will practice and sight in for longer ranges also.<br><br>At present I am seriously thinking about a sighted one from the USA, with 3 types of sights, a </font><font color="darkblue"><font color="darkblue">wrist brace laser slingshot.<br></font></font><br><font color="darkblue"><font color="darkblue"><font color="darkblue">I can't give the URL, as been here less than a week at present.<br><br></font></font>Also advice on sighting methods of various people.<br><br>Currently I have improvised a center sight between the vertical forks (or in my case the horizontal forks, as I shot with the slingshot turned, holding hand, knuckles on top); my draw is to my right eye, or a bit beyond to my ear top in line with my eye, and this seems to work well for me, with semi instinctive aim above, or below, for various ranges.<br><br>Anyway that is all for now, and bed time here.<br><br>Cheers Allan<br></font>

    well, you could try the laser one, if you only want to kill without any practice, but i would suggest to try to make one yourself, double the fun!
