Well, I guess it's bound to happen to everyone at some point - maybe even considered an initiation of sorts? Had my first hand strike today. I wasn't wearing a glove and had been shooting various types of ammo through a couple different slingshots. I picked up a smaller, inexpensive Chinese import I bought awhile back. I was shooting in my back yard and was shooting at some cans. I picked up a few small rocks from my yard to try them out. I got off some decent shots and ended up with a kind of sharp, angular rock I tried out. Not all of the rocks were round, and I hadn't had any problem with them up to that point. But I did something wrong with this one - maybe my release was off, I don't know. But this one launched right into my hand. Well, I'm sure many of you already know, that stings. And, because of the edges, I managed to draw just a little blood in the process. I have a feeling it's going to have a nice bruise tomorrow. Guess I learned a lesson about choosing the right ammo and about keeping control of the pouch! So, what kind of hits have you all taken? Any really serious damage?
