    <span class="postbody"><br><br><br>No not every day. Unless it is indoors I usually drive some place to shoot aerial shots. But F D can be done inside as I like to shoot the same distance Bob Munden did at 10 feet for his F D Shooting. At the most 5 days a week when I can grab some time. Seven days a week never. I never leave home without my weapon. Have been posting F D for about a year now and there are only three of us who F D with a slingshot so I think it is likely not to catch on unless someone like Dankung begins to promote it. </span>

    FD looks very interesting. I would try it, but as many others, I would be terribly inaccurate, because FD probably requires days and days of practicing. Also something like PFS is needed and I'm still not friend with PFS. Might ve because of poor quality of my PFS attempt (?). Also with bands it is imho impossible as they are too loose. So tubes are requirement as well. These are limits that I think cause that not so many people will try it or quit shortly.<br><br><br>I may seem to negative, but the truth is that once I would like to be able to shoot "quickly" (intentionatelly not comparing to your skills, because I could inly dream about it ). Slingshot might be great defensive weapon, but only when combined with FD.

    Hey stej,<br><br>You can F D with flat bands and they do have to be single per fork and not longer than 7 inch at the most and a medium size frame can be used. The OPFS is by nature a faster way to go.<br><br>I consider The OPFS a defensive weapon and you can draw load and shoot with some practice faster than most police officers can with their 9mm weapons. Now if all slingshots are banned then there is always BareBack.

    What is OPFS?<br>BareBack still scares me <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> I'm afraid of hittong my fingers or knuckles. I saw you explained it in your vid about active shooting, but I didn't get it. You didn't turn the pouch and no movement of your hand withtubes and still no hand hit? this reminds me I have to look at it again..

    It was enough to say that OPFS is the slingshot you shoot with <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> I saw a lot of your vids, so I hope I'm not mistaken. I tried one with thicker palm swell from natural fork as I have no plywood. Gave it try, but returned to classic one. Will try again with new OPFS as Iwill have chance to make one..
