    <div>Well I've almost finished my second finger and thumb support style slingshot and am starting to plan my next project. I think I want to build an intercontinental ballistic killer hammer grip slingshot for super heavy bands. I know how to use the fork tip as an aim point for target style shooting, but I am not a very experienced shooter and don't know how to aim with a hammer grip. I'd like to be able to shoot it butterfly style as well. Do you guys have any pointers for technique, our maybe a video link? Thanks, and sorry for the super noob question.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    <div>Thanks. I have seen those though. I know how to hold it in my hand. I'm looking for aiming tips. Once I'm at full draw and in my anchor position, what should I be looking at our doing to help me aim? I've never been accurate with a hammer grip.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    I aim the same hammergrip and finger support, you ofcourse have to adjust your aim a little but hw basics are the same

    Aiming is different for me from a slingshot to another. If i switch from slingshot i got to take some time to adapt my aiming. I shoot always sideway, finger support <u>and</u> hammergrip. I take one of these three point for aiming, mostely the highest point combined to the middle one.<br><img src="https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-3NLwJ9KD9l0/ULn2-njBCmI/AAAAAAAAAiw/zCGACSDr9aE/s800/lance-pierre%2520fang%2520m4.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>I don' t know if my explaination is clear. I think everyone has a different way for shooting.

    <div> So if I shoot with an upright hammergrip, should I be using the side of the fork closest to my body as my reference point for aiming? It seems like doing that when it is upright and not sideways will throw off windage, which is harder to adjust for than elevation, which is affected when you shoot sideways. I would solve that problem by using a sideways hammer grip, but I want to try butterfly too which seems to only work upright.<br><br><br><br><br>

    You should use the one pointing away from you, left hand>left forktip, right hand>right forktip
