    It really is. I've been on a number of forums in the past. I've never experienced anything quite like what is found here. I came on last year as a newb builder - never having tried to make a slingshot, and folks jumped up to welcome me and encourage me to get going. They answered questions they had probably answered a dozen times before. I participate on a firearms forum where if you ask a question that's already been answered, people call you an idiot or stupid for not looking for that answer in another thread. I really hate that. They don't even think about the fact that their bad attitudes drive people away. But not here. There are kind people here that don't mind answering questions again or pointing a link to where that can be found. It is that kindness that encourages me to try and do the same for new members.

    Perfect post Withak! Ive only been here for a few months but its the most welcome Ive ever been made to feel anywhere online. Falconry forums are some of the most vitriol filled, ego lead places you will ever come across. There is a total lack of that here. People who I was totally in awe of when I joined due to thier building skills, have turned out to be humble, helpful and genuine. That is not something you usually find in this online world full of keyboard warriors.

    This spirit, vibe, whatever you want to call it that runs through this forum really is something quite rare on the internet.

    This forum is the cyber-equivalent of a neighborhood bar with cheap beer- all the 'locals' come here after a day's work, quaff a few and have good fellowship.

    The carabeaner will attach to your belt and the paracord will loop through your slingshot

    A few things extra paracord for whatever you would like to do with a little pulley that attaches to your belt that retracts on a chain with some o rings to attach your slingshot for numerous things an ammo pouch and a carabeaner. :) I hope you enjoy

    That's looking really nice. I'm glad you gave that design a try. I'll have your slingshot done by the end of the week. Hopefully you'll like it as it's my first attempt to make something from multiplex. Keep your eyes open for that around the end of the week, then it will be on its way.
