    Finished some days ago. With this slingshot I would like to get into shooting with finger/thumb support. I see so many people shooting this style, but I couldn't get used to it still.<br><br>This is from oak with ending from walnut tree, because the fork was still short .. and I wanted to try this technique <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br><br>I left the white oak wood on the handle and rasped the prongs so the gap between them is bigger. Oiled a little bit and waxed. The groove on the handle is for my pinkie.<br><br>Still haven't time to shoot too much. With first band attachment and M8 hex nuts I got 2 nasty fork hits, so I cut the prongs. The last pic is how it looked before.<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=58&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2012-110.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=59&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2012-111.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=54&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/img_7810.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=55&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/img_7811.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=56&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/img_7812.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=57&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/img_7813.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br><br>This is how it looked before I cut the prongs, because I couldn't attach the bands well. Now the prongs' ends are cut straight -- the slingshot looks like Shrek and his ears.<br><br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=61&u=17729622" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i16.servimg.com/u/f16/17/72/96/22/2012-113.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a>

    Thanx guys, very appreciated your kind words. I still havent time to try it how it feels when shooting, things move quite slowly sometimes..
