    Pay attention to form when shooting narrow low forked catapults. I noticed that Joerg does not target shoot on videos other than destroying large targets. If you get the Balls to start shooting a low narrow fork you will find that a couple shots will reach their targets if you pay attention to FORM. If not..........well you will hit your hand/fork or something else unintended!! Do pay attention to form!! <br><br>any comment?

    Try twisting the pouch 90 degrees and point the forks at your target. Pretty much cures the problem with low, narrow forks believe it or not!

    Thanks. That is a very good tip. I need more practice with my release using these smaller ones. Picklefork Darren does not even use a frame sometimes so there is something to the twist. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    That, and the flip down motion.<br><br>I don't do target shooting videos because <br><br>1. I am not nearly as good as Bill Hays or Jim Harris and the other experts (though I am not THAT bad)<br><br>2. There are tons of target shooting videos on youtube already - with not very many views. People seem to find my kind of videos more interesting. <br><br>Jörg

    I agree, your videos fulfill a very unique niche among the slingshot community, and thousands of other people who don't have slingshots but also enjoy watching crazy homemade contraptions destroying cars.

    Thanks for the replies! I do enjoy your Videos and learned a lot over the years. Do they have YouTube awards like film awards do? If so, your vids would be nominated in a bunch of categories and probably win <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28">
