    cool, what did your parents think of you casting?, my parents didn't want me to cast them because of the fumes <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3">

    very unique design for sure. but i would be scared, that the pouch/ball slips off accidently with forks that high.<br><br>i would have problems to bear in mind not to aim with the "barrel", but it looks very cool.<br><br>don't put too strong rubber on it to prevent "barrel" breaking where the forks are screwed in.

    <div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">Nice work. I second MaddyMax' s comment. Be careful and wear <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6"> when shootin'.</div>
     
  8. That's an awesome build, one question. How comfortable is that trigger mechanism you have? I was thinking about using a type like that but wasn't sure how comfy they are to use.

    Nice pistol! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>If you attach the rubber as on the Christmas Tree x-bow it will allow stronger rubber and possibly make it easier to aim. Just a tip.

    <div>Looks good and might be work well on pretty low distances, but the steelballs (or whatever you shoot) will get spin... still very nice</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>If the slingshot is too strong, you're too weak! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
