I'm completely new at this but I am liking it all the way. I started by making my own slingshots (bean shooter) a couple of months ago after watching some youtube movies about it. After that I walked into the woods behind my house in search for some natural forks to create my first slingshot. And now I'm here in the hope that I can learn from all you veteran sling shooters.</font></font><br><br><font color="black"><font face="'Verdana'">I hope that you can all read this because my English is a bit rusty.</font></font><br><br><font color="black"><font face="'Verdana'">With Greeting,</font></font><br><br><font color="black"><font face="'Verdana'">Bart from The Netherlands</font></font>

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>HAHAHA,<br><br>There was once a coach from the Netherlands (Rinus Michels (you probably still know him, he was the coach that kicked Germany's butt in 1988 in the semifinals hahahaha)) who said "Soccer is War". I always quote him in that, and then I finish his sentence with "War is bad, so Soccer is Bad".<br><br>But that is probably because I don't like soccer :). <br><br>So let us all have fun with a slingshot instead of a soccer ball.</span>

    Welcome Bart.<br>If you are living near the borderline to Germany, stand with one feet on the Netherlands and with one feet on the German side. So it´s half illegal while shooting. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
