    Hi all,

    My name is Asmidin (aka Ash), 31 years old and live in the Netherlands. Following the YouTube Slingshot Channel for a while now and registered about a week ago. Just admire Joerg's craftsmanship.

    Slingshots in the Netherlands are a no no...
    The law forbids us / me to own and use slingshots in the Netherlands and because of this fact it's not a popular item. Our neighbour country Belgium has a slingshot club and approach the slingshot as a flok sport (i dont know if this is the correct term). I think the Netherlands need a club like this :D I can see the sportsmanship in this!

    Well as you can guess I dont own any slingshots myself! But cant help the fact that I am trying to design and make some models myself. I just love and enjoy the artistry of a self made product. Have seen some wonderfull designs and shapes on the internet.

    I hope to share some of my designs in the future with you all!
    Have a good one!

    gday Ash here in Australia there are states that have declared the humble slingshot a dangerous weapon.
    im glad this is not the case where i live but just 40 kilometers to the south and i would be arrested for carrying a concealed weapon if caught with one there.

    perhaps if you had a friend over the border you could leave your slingshot there when you get one made that way you are safe?
