    Okay, here is the thread for the Viking Sniper slingshot! I got the Antraxx-virus, I had to make some nice outdoors-pics in the sun of this new slingy. So I can warn you, this is a pic-heavy topic <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>First I put it in the snow, to show that this slingshot is pretty much water-resistant. Then I got a better idea for a background...<br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0015.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0014.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>...Hay! I love the smell of hay, and it looks pretty nice too, dont you think? Especially I like the third and the last hay-pics. <br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0016.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0017.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0018.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Of course a "How to hold it properly"-pic.<br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0111.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>Then I saw this moose-whateveritscalledinenglish-plate and tought it would look funny with the Sniper hanging from it. Please ignore the bird-poop <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_redface.gif" alt="Embarassed" longdesc="10"><br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0113.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>And when walking back I couldnt resist to take some pics of it in the sand. <br><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0114.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i72.servimg.com/u/f72/17/50/40/49/img_0117.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br>The slingshot feels great in the hand, and I think it will shoot nice! I put on a light target-bandset. There is a lanyard in the pics but I prefer holding it without so I have removed it now.<br><br>Hope you liked it! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    Thanks!<br><br>This slingshot was made very quickly to test the design, but I think it came out pretty nice and comfortable (but as you said Lars, not very well-sanded <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> )<br>One day I want to make a "Viking Sniper" from a natural birchfork, with a nice palmswell from antler or something. Properly sanded of course! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"> And now I can see why you like your Calt-slingys so much. Sideway shooters looks pretty professional!

    I bet that you will be shooting great sideways, that catty you made will shoot as good as the most luxurious one ... follow master Bill Hays way !!! the most important (for me) practice ... release ... release ... forever ... lucky you have nice wood and antler (jealous <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">) ... happy shooting FIAAO !!!
