    Shoot something. There’s nothing like shooting a catapult to lift the blues and if it goes boom! all the better. This thread is for any film of you having fun hitting something. Or even missing.

  3. I got my rambone 2 days ago (my first bought slingshot) and i did some testing today, at about 10 yards i shot a 6mm hex nut (no proper ammo yet) straight trough a 10mm safety glass jar. Unfortunately i didnt get it on tape because it would have looked pretty cool in slo-mo

    Nothing wrong with hex nuts.
    You will hear for the first but certainly not the last time:
    No video: it didn’t happen. I think it would look cool too: got any more jars?

    Short fun. You clean more than you shoot :D
    I advise to shoot stuff from neighbors!
    Nothing to clean and you mass with peopel you dont like ;)
    Thats the beauty of the slingshot: easy to hide!

    Hit another cool target. This time the top of a bucket of frozen water.

    Man I was feeling blue. I had no one to talk to....
    So I set up a target and shot at it from a ridiculously (for me) long distance until I hit it

  11. Thats a sure thing! My neighbours have this really ennoying dog that wont stop digging around in my yard... he better watch himself
    I only shoot glass as a experiment (to see if i can shoot like a car window and how the damage conpares to my crossbow)
    I normally shoot at trashcans as they give a nice sound and are nice to shoot at like 30 yards
     
  12. Thats true, next time i'll make sure i have 4 different angles on it and ultra-slowmotion
    I do have more jars, but they cost like 7 euro per piece so its not a cheap thibg to shoot at

    Everything looks extra cool in slo-mo :D

    That shot, where you see the ball flying towards the bottle, is phenomenal.
    :)

    Glad you like it so far. I can hear the soundtrack. Can everyone else?

    Edit:
    Copyright issues in Canada and USA. So Germany UK ETC should understand the soundtrack relating to the video.

    I love it, when bored and got the blues, just fill my pockets with ammo, walk in the woods and. SHOOT, walnuts, knotholes, trash, cans, scrounge noisy birds, (no songbirds) and things that p—- me off, cats,dogs , raccoons, frogs, all kinds of stuff.
