        I made that mistake once. I shook up a full beer bottle and hit it from about 20' . I felt pieces of the bottle hit me in the face, not good!

        This one was empty- I was expecting a "clank" ricochet sound. I guess I should have said imploded, as there was a hollow "pop" as it just collapsed. Awesome!

        If You want to shoot with slingshot when temperature is lower than 0°C, Precise Anti-Cold is perfect. I have only 0,75 mm thick.

      My eyes must had fooled me thinking 2” inches. Not feet what you clearly said. Lol. I was thinking wow I must really be bad at my shooting set ups. He is getting only 2” drop at 100’.

        Well, I stand corrected. Went to my favorite 25' shooting and realized when I was doing my 100' shots, I was holding the grip of the forks higher-STILL over a foot drop!

        @Searcher_47 you know i think a person learns different hold overs for different distances and really doesn’t think about the actual measures hangover in a measured sense. If that makes sense.

      Through with 100' bottle shot-I can only graze it. But shooting long distance DOES improve shooting- have to be calm and release good.

        What setup for 2"drop at 100' feet? I really need to start logging what ammo and set ups do what for my intended distance. Makes me wonder if I am not getting the best performance out of my set ups.

        Great fun to shoot. Not so much fun to forget a shard then step on it barefooted. Whatever you do don't shoot one in or over the water! The environMENTALists will attack you for endangering walking catfish.

        Go slowly at first. Just try to become smooth with the draw. Focus on one aspect at a time. Drawing. Loading. Releasing. There's no way to aim, so throw that out the window.
