    Thanks guys.
    I got the PFS from Pipesmoker, he sent it some time ago and from then i keep it in my pocket everydays.
    The leather for the pouch is not very strong so, using that attaching method is the best way. Because of the holes, it is very light and even with small ammo there is no handslaps. From now i' ll use only that sort of pouch and attachment.

    Yup, you sure did clip it. Good shooting! [​IMG]

    I gotta check out the 'dog-bone' pouch too. I think I saw a thread and template(s) for those somewhere...

    Hi tokSick,

    Great shooting and that PFS is an eye candy :).
    May I ask about the band? It's seems it's a Decathlon Domyos? Is it?
    Thank you in advance!

    Twisting+tweaking method.... i got it from you.
    Dog-Bone pouch.... i got it from you( i modified a little bit your design).
    Trying to shoot at smaller things than cans... Got it from you.
    The only think i can' t copy from you is your serenity. ;)

    It is french but french in Belgium is quite different than in France. Also, like in every language, it is different depending from what side of the country you are from.

    I look like your friend??? You mean your friend look like me!?!? He probably will get a lot of problems cuz i am copyrighted :D

    Thanks Thistle, i am now running out of lighters.
    You just have to type holeless pouch in the search button and you will find Mr. Borquez' s thread. Very usefull.

    The bands are Kettler Latex Flexibands. They are quite good but not as good as TBG. The purple ones i use are the same thickness than TBG but not that strong but i think( feel) that the speed is way better. I just made an PayPal account so it will be easier to buy TBG from now.

    Thanks to all of you, girl and guys, for your nice comments.

    Patela....The bone of the knee cap. (orthopaedic pschosis!)
    That's not a real helmet... Just a half of an easter egg that i attached paper horns (from a bad blueprint). But it gives me some ideas!:rolleyes:

    @toksick ... a hint, when you cut a can don't throw it away, use the halved top or bottom as circular target, circular targets are better than "long verticals" ones to work the ball drop ... and when shooting larger targets as cans I use to overlap in my mind a little spot over the place I want to hit, paying attention to the whole can may be confusing ... I try to shot the can as I were shooting at a bottle top LOL ! ...
    Cheers
