    Just so everyone knows, I'm "Carbon" on the SSF. Carbon wasn't available here...<br><br>Well I'm really happy with how this one turned out. I can't tell if I'm just happy to try out shooting again, or if it looks ok.<br>I<br> dried this little fork out yesterday and used a hacksaw, knife, and a <br>piece of glass(which works really well for anyone that hasn't tried it) <br>to smooth it out and shape it a bit. I banded it up with Theraband green<br> for target practice, and although it cant punch through cans it shoots <br>fast enough to stay pretty flat out to about 15m which is about the max I<br> would shoot with it.<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/ghjtA5wicpc" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>Got the aiming down:<br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/vf3ohUmEHnI" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0432.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0431.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Nice little slingshot.<br>I think in the first vid you didn' t take enough time to aim when shooting. Looks like that little bugger can support strong bands too. Very nice work and thanks for the vidzz. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Hi flipper,<br>nice shooting and nice slingshot.<br>You can also use glass to polish the wood, just rub with a bottle and moderate pressure over the wood.<br>The fibers lay down and the wood becomes shiny.<br>Zwillie
