So there I was, happily honing my accuracy skills with the Green Harpee, when the wife walks into the shed. Not too impressed with my grouping inside a 3 inch circle at 10 metres, she wanted to have a go to show me how to do it. With trepidation I handed her the Harpee and tried to show her how to hold it correctly. Big mistake !! “I used to shoot these things when I was a kid” came the reply. “Just leave me alone and let me show how to shoot” she said. It did fleetingly cross my mind to go and get an indestructible Pocket Predator for her to shoot but she was already pulling back the Theraband on my first homemade. Oh well, what harm could be done. “Make sure you at least hit the catch box” I said. The pouch was released...... the steel ball dropped at her feet....silence... then laughter. “It fell out of the pouch – I’ll have another go” she said. Same again, ball dropped at her feet, more laughter. Apparently, I was putting her off by watching her, so I didn’t watch the next shot which actually rolled about 6 feet in front of her this time. “No more”, I said and took the slingshot back off her. After checking out the slingshot the picture shows the damage she had done to it (good grouping though !!) I really didn’t know whether to laugh or cry....my first homemade and all she could say was “well, you can always make another one” between her howls of laughter. The moral of the story is... If there is a wife in your life and she wants to be one of the boys, Make sure she plays with the indestructible toys !!
