    The spring has come. Once again we can spend some time outdoors!<br><br>Of course one must ALWAYS have a slingshot around. But on a Sunday morning walk with the family, a bulky Moorhammer isn't appropriate. So I always carry a mini slingshot. <br><br>Ammo is another concern. I actually loved LW's magazine idea <br><br><a href="http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t3019-mag-shooter" class="postlink">See his original model</a> <br><br>so much that I decided to make another mini, with that mag design included.<br><br>5 rounds of 8mm steel! Held in place by a 3mm neodyme. Orange Osage on 9mm multiplex, finished in Linseed. <br><br>I put on very short bands, just 10cm active length. Kept the bands a bit wider so the 8mm still have decent power. <br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima11.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima12.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima13.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima14.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima15.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i75.servimg.com/u/f75/16/32/46/92/minima16.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Wow, I love this little one! Definitely something I still need. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br><br><br>No question, this small little &ldquo;pocket shooter&rdquo; deserves its name. And I have no<br>doubts that it is a lot of fun to shoot with it. I love the picture where it<br>disappears in your hand&hellip; <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><br><br><br><br><br>Some people told me, that 7 balls or in your case 5 balls is to less for a Slingshot magazine.<br>But that was not the point, when I designed the magazine. The point is, when I go out, even with no shooting in my mind, I grab the slingshot and I have everything needed at hand for some rounds of fun. <br><br><br>As most of us like pinkie holes, (gives me always a secure grip) my last design combines<br>the magazine with a pinkie hole in the handle. It can carry 6 rounds of 12.7 mm<br>steelballs and my pinkie fits perfect in one side of the slingshot. No need to<br>make the other side look like the side where I put my pinkie in.<br><br><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/ttf10.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>It is not new, but has not posted the slingshot since now, because I think I bored some people with all my postings of new Slingshots. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_question.gif" alt="Question" longdesc="17"><br><br><br>Anyway here are some pictures and thank you very much, for mention me in your post:<br><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/ttf0110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/ttf0210.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Nice one Jörg.<br>I will def. order some osage Orange once, i really love the look of that wood on all of your latest projekts.<br>I´m also still enjoying LW´s Mag in my Tactical plus. A very cool design, no doubt...but...looking at your fingers Jörg...i think you need a pencil to get a Ball from the magazine <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>This is one of my smallest Design. Around 10cm hight. One or two months old. Aluminum, Jute/Canvas Micarta and Vulcan-Fibre Spacers.<br>I designed it as a tubeshooter...with holes only...and wanted to hold them in place with a small steelball. Just a few days before i finished it you posted something about how dangerous that "ball inside tube" can be...so i swapped the concept. The Slots are abled to hold flatbands if i want to and the looped tubes are held safely with the brass rods i hope.<br><br><img src="http://i37.tinypic.com/28ukztl.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Cheers AnTrAxX

    Completely missed, it is said, "<strong>Show off your minis</strong>," and I was just talking about magazines... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br><br><br>OK, this is so far the smallest I've made. It should be noted that I have really small hands. I'm<br>sure Joerg can also make it disappear in his hands... <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br><img src="http://i76.servimg.com/u/f76/18/08/39/77/4in110.jpg" border="0" alt="">
