The wood I found and cut it into shape myself. I made the pouch out of the tongue of a shoe which had good leather to use. The handles I always traditionally put rubber band grips on them for comfort but this time I also added shoe lace.<br><br>On the right is a slingshot inspired by Joerg Sprave from his video "How to weaponize office supplies" He basically jammed the scissors with pieces of folded paper so that it would make a "Y" formation. He then secures it so that the paper does not fall out then he attached his rubber and a pouch. I did this with an extra pair of scissors I had around my house. This pair though had a little nub that got in the way of where the projectile would go through so I had to cut it off with a knife. The rubber I used is Drug Mart Brand rubber bands which I find REALLY REALLY good and I have been using them for the past few years. The pouch came off the arm strap of an old backpack I did not use anymore. I secured the paper with tape and I made a traditional rubber band grip like I always do when I finalize my slingshots.<br><br>My slingshots work very well. Drug Mart Rubber can last for months at a time on a slingshot before you have to replace them. I have been using the same bag of rubber bands they sold me two years ago. This is obviously a lower quality slingshot from what some of you guys make but when it comes to slingshots other people have made around you these will be superior. The pouches are big enough that you can fit multiple stones in and use the slingshot as a shotgun. I have gotten good enough to spray a blast or two every second. If you are a guy looking to make a slingshot these would be a very good in starting your slingshot making career.
