    Not a bad idea. If you could come up with a quick-change method of attaching the bands, you could just keep them in your pocket along with some ammo and you've got a PFS/stick shot type shooter any time you want! Cool :cool:

    Most cellphones can be equipped with cases. Attach the bands to the case, and put the phone in the case when 'need' arises, to give the 'sling' the needed rigidity. I'd think that that would come as close to a 'quick-change method as you could using this medium.

    It's a NOKIA right? It could probably withstand a direct hit :-D

    Awesome shooting as always Mister Arturo.

    That's certainly one option, but I can think of another possibility - I'm picturing in my mind a 'cap', something that could slip snugly over the top of the phone, tight enough to hold it in place, but not so much to make it impossible to remove. Plus a rubber cap would provide some protection for the top portion of the phone in the event of a 'fork' hit. I'm not exactly sure how to make it happen (I'm no designer), but I think it could be done. Main problem is that you'd have to come up with a different design for each phone. Would be fun to try.

    Thanks guys ! ... this was more for fun than a serious test, once more dgui's "turn and tweak" grants safety, I do it all days so a 'fork' hit was not my concern, I was worried the 'attachment' could slip so I didn't stretch the bands to maximum ... I am thinking in a piece of wood, a semi circular jaw to press bands with the same rubber wrap ...

    I bet you could make some long distance calls with that. :D I think the ringtone for me would be OW OW OW OW OW OW OW OW.

    Your shooting is the best. I love to watch you at play with your slings.
