    When do they happen?

    I havent had one in 500 shots. I´m a bit concerned to experience something like this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KTp-dGNwSEk

    Can you imagine how awful this would has been with Joergs Cannon? The one he shots metall balls at a car.

  2. Rts shots happen when you have not enough poststamps on the ammunition or the wrong adress. :D

    That Girl had put the melon wrong into the pouch.

    Or at the slingshot could it happen when the pouch not open at the right Time because the Ammunition is to light for the bands.

    So it happens to me?

    From what I read so far, RTS can have a lot of causes. E.g.
    - too narrow pouch
    - too wide pouch
    - too light ammo
    - bad pouch material or bad bands/tubes attachment to the pouch (that remains 'closed' - that's what happened the girl with melon)
    - ..
    it's scary. I haven't had any RTS so far, but heard about it too often for my taste..
