        Haha, I feel it! I know I disappointed some, just doing what I thought would be the most meaningful :). Don't worry, I have a lot more to go through! The next couple of episodes will be super cool and more focused on the slingshots.

        That sounds right. Me and JD and an awesome dude named Crazy Mike all tied for 6th place. But as far as I know only JD and my self had a perfect sore on one of the paper targets. JD hit 10 for 10 on the long range and I went 10 for 10 on the 11 yard standard target.

      Sometimes I feel like I am way to intense. I'll get carried away trying to prove a point and trespass on the thread creator.

    My Story
    Growing up in a military family, I lived in about 8 different places my first 16 years of life. I was naturally introverted, homeschooled and was a competitive gymnast for most of my childhood. Because of all of this, it was pretty difficult for me to make friends, so I turned to hobbies to keep me busy. I had always been interested in weapons and used to watch the military channel and history channel when I was younger. Somehow when I was about 10 or 11, I discovered slingshots and quickly fell in love with them. I was a very responsible kid, and my parents gave me a pretty free rein, so I learned all I could about them, and got pretty good with one. I was a natural marksman, and I loved being precise and accurate, and seeing a can fall that I was aiming at from a long distance away is an amazing feeling that I still love to this day. A few years passed as I pursued gymnastics, and then when I was about 14 or 15, I got interested in them again and stumbled across the slingshot forums, which inspired me to try my hand at making my own slingshots, even though I had absolutely no experience at building things. Around that time I was finally able to acquire some basic tools and started making slingshots out of wood, and anything else I could find. I was quickly mesmerized by the act of taking an idea from my mind and making it into a physical object that worked how I wanted it to. It was, and is, truly one of the most amazing feelings out there. Since then I discovered metal working, which I instantly fell in love with and which allowed me to make other kinds of weapons, like throwing spikes, throwing spears, metal slingshots, and more. Eventually, I had gained so much knowledge and started creating new ways of doing things, that I could no longer keep it all to myself. So after lots of help and encouragement from my family and close friends, I started a YouTube channel and named it SharpshooterJD, after the name I had picked for myself on the slingshot forums. The rest is history.

    Some Of My Favorite Scriptures
    Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
    Isaiah 40:28-31
    Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
    Romans 8:38-39 "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
    Philippians 4:7
    And the peace of God which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
