    few day ago I've shown my latest build, I am a curious soul and a radical idea sparkled in my mind trying to figure how to drive the lazy grip to an extreme. The outcome was a groove in the frame, to hold it 100% "finger tips". From the beginning it performed with excellent accuracy and consistency, so my conclusion to day is this kind of grip performs almost perfect, a successful experiment ...
    cheers

    Arturo my friend!

    I really love your unique and remarkable style.
    The wood (as you know) and even more how you
    achieve the highest goal, simplicity!

    It´s just that when you (I mean YOU) speak about accuracy,
    you disrespect one simple fact: It´s you shooting those
    beauties!- And the special thing about you is that you
    could take a chocolate bar that´s been lying in the chilean
    sun for two and a half hours, band it up and hit 5/5 from
    20 meters! (Wich anybody could.. by freezing that chocolate bar
    and shooting from a two meters distance..)

    Agreed? :)

    Verbeugung!

    I agree with Be, you are an amazing marksman. I have seen the PFSs you make simply become an extension of your arm. Thatcham something everyone on this forum should strive for my friend.

    The "Experiment" is clearly a success. I think maybe it's time to amend the term 'PFS' to add some additional notation - we already have the 'original' PFS by Dgui. I think maybe we should do something like PFS-AB, to identify this modified style of Chilean PFS by the angle-grinding, can-top killing PFS master Arturo!

    Arturo, sometime I think you're too awesome for your own good. Then I re-think that, and realize that you are exactly the right amount of awesome.

    Arturo, my friend, I've come to doubt that your skills are as meager as you claim! I think that you've been trying to put one over on us! Great stuff!

    maybe this kind of grip is original but I don't claim nothing, every shooter is different, others could not like it or find difficult to use, at least works for me he he ...

    ha ha sometimes I get disappointed myself for not being exactly the "right amount of awesome" I expect LOL ! :p

    maybe you are right, well I believe now I am more capable building, had very bad experiences before so believed building was not for me :eek: ... thanks for the support

    yes my friend 50% humour as all things in my life ...
    cheers

    Now I'll be thinking about that beautiful slingshot for another whole day.

    Funny, I never imagined I'd have any reason to daydream about a slingshot. Thank you for that Arturo!

    I think I have even memorized the proportions and shape of this one, well enough to carve one out in any scale.

    If I ever find suitable wood, I'll be asking for the measurements. :)
