<br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

Its fits in my hands great and I am no monster by any means(5'<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cool.gif" alt="Cool" longdesc="6">. Plus the name is the Sledge Hammer aka a burly tough nasty shooting device <img src="http://r28.imgfast.net/users/2815/14/20/70/smiles/2307125563.gif" border="0" alt="">. Not the Finishing hammer that is dainty,weak and my wife would plink around(of course I am joking lol).<br><br>Yesterday and today we have been testing this monster with single band 3 mill wide 25 centimeters long(Thera Band Gold). My brother likes the pull to the ear shooting style so that is what we banded it for(personally i like longer bands and a little past the ear or a butterfly). It really is a great shooter and it has gone from us thinking maybe a great looker and shelf candy to a daily slinger for us here and a lot of fun.
