    This is my little pocket shooter from hawthorn. It was just an attempt for a slingshot that fits in my pocket. I found out, that the handle is too narrow, so it wasn't comfortable to hold. That's why I first carved the grooves for fingers and didn't polish it, because it was slipping. And you know - when you have no good grip, you don't enjoy the shooting. Also that's why I tried to wrap it with leather so that I avoid the slipping. The leather works good, but the combination of ping and brown made it a slingshot for circus clown <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Anyway, it works. <br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=66&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2012-010.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=67&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2012-114.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=68&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2013-012.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=69&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2013-013.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=70&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2013-014.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=71&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2013-015.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Thanks guys for your kind words. Well, then I'll try something similar with some different grip again.<br>This one to finish took november to januaryj, it was a long journey. Now I should start the "project around the world" as almost all of you are finished <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">
