    No, coins and aspirins like PFShooter does.<br><br>I have no relation with hunting, I don't like it.

    I see, you use the tool to trigger the launching ss? ... another way I believe that improves your instinctive shooting is to stand facing behind your target and turn around rapidly and preparing the shoot while turning so when you face the target you shoot immediately (no pause) ... I have done this some times, and is very difficult to put a shot this way at least for me ... I saw it in a gamekeeper's John video ...

    The trigger is based on Joergs designs but in a basic way. The pliers hold a knot that is attached to the rubber and the clamp prevents it from releasing until it is pulled off with a string that is attached to it.

    Lol butchers put there meat through processing that usually takes a week. Plus b4 its killed farmers inject there animals witt steroids. Witch long story short its better for your health to kill your own meat.

    Yea I also grow vegatables and I have a grape tree in my back yard. So I have access to something sweet but healthy also. And when you buy meat from stores,markets,butchers,ect about 90 pecent of them drug there livestock with steroids witch is bad for your health and makes you fat.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Well, Great your meat should be ok to eat then. But in all cases it is still better to hunt your food from the wild. They eat what they are supposed to from the wild naturaly because they are eating a variety of what they want, not staple food. Pluss they are more lean becase they have unlimited space to run around and ecercise.</span>

    <span class="postbody"><br>This is going off topic ... but it is recognized that a good Mediterranean diet is healthy and you can still buy good meat (farm animals) without steroids or hormones ... at least here where I live ... anyway I hunt the rabbits that are a pest here (and eat them) and go fishing ... never killed small birds (almost nothing to eat) or other animals for fun ... I like the birds singing ...</span>
