    Hi!
    I am new in this forum and i decided to show you my slingshots:)

    This is my first slingshot ever. I used The Dragon, by Hrawk as a blueprint. It is made out of 15mm plywood and it haves oak handle. I coated it with some boat varnish. It is banded up with two layer TBG in both sides. I like it very much.:D

    Next ones are designed by mojo. These are made out of 15mm plywood and handles are oak. I coated these with boat varnish. They feel very good in the hand. I made three of them, one for my friend, one for my big brother and one for myself:D

    Last one is not fully a slingshot, but i wanted to show it anyways. This is my "PickShot". I found an old pickaxe head when i was in scoutcamp. When i get home i weldet the pickaxe head in to 3cm steel pipe, it was nice but not nice enough, so i added a slingshot in to it.:D I wrapped handle with paracord. I did not clean all the rust away, because it looks more badass that way :D. It is very brutal weapon, and it will go through anything that comes into it way :).

    Welcome to the forum! And a nice way to get started! A nice lot of great looking slingshots, as well as the 'pick shot'. Good to have you here and we'll be looking forward to your next pieces of work.

    The ones with boat varnish are very shiny
