    Hello tokSick, thanks my friend ... maybe for the greats this means nothing but for us simple mortals is great, since I started butterfly (less than a month) I entered in a new world !!! luckily I've decided to go that style ... I am very satisfied ... shooting ss's is the most rewarding type of shooting I have done ...<br>Cheers<br>Arturo

    Thank you guys for your replies ... the little vids are the only thing I have to share with you, I am a complete failure crafting, the only one I decently ended is the Fang (the one I shoot) and it gave me "blood, sweat and tears" for over a month. I've failed miserably with the "project around the world", my sincere apologies to Zwillie, but what I done to that chunk of steel is a shame ... the only ss's I have beside the Fang is the Mahogany beauty which is very valuable to me as art so I shoot it with the maximum care (not too much) and the nice gift from slingpit "the Horse" that shoots quite well but I must finish it with a wooden handle ... sometimes I feel I am boring because I don't have nothing nice to share ...<br>Cheers<br>Arturo

    <span class="postbody"><br>Hello Saderath, thanks my friend for your support ... that are good news, 20m !!! I can't wait to enjoy it, that will be very inspiring, I hope the weather soon will be OK there, noticed the sun going north, it is sad to be shooting alone here ... the only thing that makes me happy are the big improvements I made last month since shooting butterfly, in May will be my first ss birthday ...</span>

    I did like 50 m length, but sadly that broke my slingshot <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">. Also I was just shooting range, I wasn't targeting anything.

    Hello guys, here is another video pinching the ball in a different way with my "doggie extreme" pouch ... DISCLAIMER !!! this pouch is perceived to be prone to the "cup effect" which may cause RTS (backfire), what I can say that this is more apparent than real as the back propelling area stays perfectly straight during ammo acceleration, anyway for the newbies wanting to explore different alternatives and experiments don't forget never to extreme the safety measures (eye protection, etc) ...<br>the video is <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkbVteHm0ik" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">HERE</a><br>and <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CWJET7teLk" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">THIS</a><br>Cheers<br>Arturo
