    I made my first slingshot, so my nieces and nephews would have something to shoot. I used wire from a coat hanger, yarn, #32 rubber bands, and the pouch from the original bands that came with my old Marksman folder. It has about a 20 inch pull, and shoots about 20 feet before dropping significantly. <br><br><img src="https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/531761_4995693084750_280909110_n.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/1719_4995693164752_712745542_n.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Nice and simple. I like this 'alambre resortera' with chained bands. I bet the kids enjoy it.<br><br>Maybe this is what Nico's slingshot looked like when he was a kid.<br><br><a href="http://nicos-resorterablog.blogspot.com/2012/04/alambre-resortera-wirecoathanger.html" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://nicos-resorterablog.blogspot.com/2012/04/alambre-resortera-wirecoathanger.html</a>
