    <br>After shooting the "Zombiehammer" slingshot felt so good, I wanted to try a "milder" version of a weighted handheld. <br><br>So I made a modded Panther with a stock turned from European Dogwood (what else). The handle sports a large pommel at the bottom side, which I drilled out and put in a 22mm lead ball. Then I capped the pommel with a bit of leftover olive wood. <br><br>As always, I am thrilled with the density of the dogwood. The way it polishes is astounding, it looks like covered with poly - but it is not. Just buffed up wood. <br><br>Will shoot with it later today!
