    Thought I would say howdy. Been following the work/play of Herr Sprave for a while now on YouTube. Being something of a mad inventor myself I am encouraged to make some sling shots and know just about nothing. But I never let that stop me.

    Projectile weapons fascinate me and I have built a few odd catapults, but never considered making a conventional sling shot.

    I look forward to learning more about them.

    Thank you for creating this forum.

    Welcome to the forum MountainStorm. Looking at the videos you just posted, I take it that you are CyberDruidtheModGod on YT? If so, I'm already familiar with some of your work, I believe I first found your channel after I saw a video for those custom shell cutters/preppers for making wax slug shots. Nice work. We'll look forward to your slingshot work too.

    I appreciate the welcome.

    I'll be in the shop today working on some prototypes. All I can say at this time is I have a lot of acrylic scrap and a lot to learn. Lucky for me the scrap is "free" and I'm a fast learner :p

    I appreciate the welcome and the feedback on my work. As I dive into sling making it's clear there are many subtle features of frame geometry and shooting technique that only become obvious after smashing your hand with a rock...lol
