    <div>I don't know him, so I don't know if he would care or not. I'm just making it for my personal use though, not to sell.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    I couldn't imagine him getting to bent out of shape considering a few of his models are borrowed ideas, so to speak.

    I would suggest looking up Dgui until you get a response from one of our awesome members, I believe he is a very respectable gentleman in this field of design.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>adapt some ideas is ok. there's no really "new" slingshot design. always two arms with bands. but presenting blueprints with original measurements from commercial slingshots by also mentioning it's name is not very polite.<br><br>examples:<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=18&u=17552695" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i17.servimg.com/u/f17/17/55/26/95/pfs_bm10.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a></span>

    <div>Dgui is the original designer, right? The only thing I don't like about his pickle forks is that they are all paper thin and made for light bands and small ammo. That's why I like Gamekeeper John's version. It's more substantial and can take double bands.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    Well go with whatever design suits you right. i was just suggesting a popular maker with original ideas. Some people, dont like to settle for a idea that was made by a bright mind then revamped by someone that has claimed to make 'improvements' to it.
