  3. Why didn't you make the Form of the stand for the Met Horn not as a Slingshot?
    A tree fork as stand!

    I was in the Forest and shoot with my new Howitzer aluminium.
    It is nice to shoot with them.

    Lars: Nice idea (both with this thread and with the horn-holder. Mind if I make one?

    I marched with Mora Musicband, I played the snare drum. My dad was ill and couldnt join us (he usually plays the tuba). Then we rehersed for our upcoming Estonia-trip next weekend.

    made some charcloth and tried making fire with flint & steel. no success, so i burned it with sun & magnifying glass.

    searched through my target foam with a metal detector to retrieve a couple of field tips and lead balls.

    plinked 'round with a no fork slingbow. after a few shots i found it not comfortable that the rubber was cutting off blood cirkulation around my ring finger and middle finger knuckles so i will make some kind of knuckleduster frame in near future.

    Finished sanding a board cut out of okume marine plywood and made a bunch of pouches, I will post pics of the slingshot once i band it up.
    Also all of these horns, have you guys ever seen the slingshot made from a bull horn? i think it was on the "slingshots of the world" web site.

    I tested my new safety wall behind my catchbox. 180cm x 180cm, solid oak (40mm boards). It is set in concrete.

    I like it! Fired about 500 hex nuts today from the pump gun (that is so much fun), now my arms and shoulders are hurting... but I enjoyed it. The thing is so quick.

    I also shot probably 200 rounds with normal slingshots. Will go to Paris in three weeks, on invitation of France5 (a TV channel). Don't want to embarass myself there, so I need the practice after the looong winter.

    Thanks Lars and Onnod.

    I made a crossbow today. Just a weak one as the legal power limit for crossbows are 10j in Sweden. Stupid Swedes setting low limits...

    I have to make the arrow-clasp, the stirrup and of course some arrows before I post any pics :) The crossbow is loosly based on the classical "Lillöhus"-crossbow:
