    It's time to show off another wonderful fork that I have been fortunate enough to receive. This one though is particularly special. It comes from my best friend Bobby, you may know him as Noobshooter. From the age of 16 no other person has been there to help me or my wife out of a bind, to lend a hand moving, to build a fence or a barn, to help repair a truck or a car, or to just have a good conversation or a pleasant dinner with like Bobby has. And now the one man I could always count on has kindly gifted me with this gorgeous slingshot of his own creation.

    The materials include Acrylic, Macassar Ebony, Gum, Osage, Kirinite,G10, Bloodwood, and a burl(I'm not sure of what kind), veneer.

    I truly can't thank you enough man, and I'm not just talking about the slingshot, but THANK YOU.
