    I've been watching a LOT of youtube at the moment, and there is one thing I have found, <i>how to aim a slingshot</i>.<br><br>maybe I'm odd in that I dont aim, or at least i dont do it concsioulsy... I just to be able to hit without thinking what I'm doing, i shoot a bow the same way- anyone else like that?

    While sights are cool and allow you to start shooting practically out of the box...instinctive shooting is just sooo much more rewarding. At moderate ranges (40-50 yards) a sight becomes quite handy and you need to make some minor adjutments. However, when longer ranges are brought into play (60-70 yards), sight or no sight, the instinctive side comes back into play at a whole new level....at least it does for me in archery considering I like too shoot off of a cliff at targets below. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pirat.png" alt="pirat" longdesc="23"><br><br><font color="blue"><strong>Ivo</strong></font>

    I site off the fork w/ a horizontal grip, So far anyway. <br>I shoot bows both ways. I have always shot recurves right off the stick since I was a kid. I got a compound bow about 10 years ago and I have to admit I kinda like the sights. It gives a fellow confidence when you "Robbin Hood" an arrow every once and a while. <br>I've only been shooting a slingshot about a month and so I'm staying open to experiments and reinterpretations.

    instinctive shooting suits some people while aiming suits others.... i aim by pulling the bands to my ear and looking at the top bands... got some bad hits on the cheeck though...lol.. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
