    Ok so I waited to do this and hope that it takes.

    Here's my idea:

    I will start it Daily Slings, what are you shooting today. No limitations except it has to be a slingshot.
    1. Frame/frames - Stone cold PFS & little oak bird.
    2. Bands- .030 latex 7/8-3/4 tapers on both frames gen3 pouches both frames
    3 target- 20 ft distance, 3/4" spinner & 20oz soda bottle cap.
    4. Ammo-3/8" steel

    NOW LET'S GET THIS ROLLING DAILY... ADMIN IF IT TAKES PIN IT!!!!

      Day 2 of shooting the Island Made frames that I got from Shane. Beautiful afternoon here in South Carolina and perfect weather for enjoying a little target shooting and can destruction.



      Accuracy check with the Maple slice from the Island! Banded with BSB 0.5 for aim and anchor with a medium size pouch and 8mm ammo.

      Shifted gears to the long bands and crushed this can with 3/8" ammo.

      And last, another flat tire by the big brass PFS.

      Beautiful warm afternoon in the Charleston, SC area. Spent a little more time on the Sling-N-Shot originals that I just received. Much better lighting to see but had a bad case of the hitting high syndrome. Still awesome shooting slings. Both of these are dead on once you find the sweet spot.

      @KawKan , Ray, this one is for you! Not a Scottish Ale per say, but close enough.

      Cool Monroe, I have to say, you really have a knack for finding the sweet spot of any sling, great shooting. [emoji1690]

      Thanks Darrell,
      There is a lot of room for improvement. Normally, about 3 shots and I'm good for any 60mm target. But natties with angled tips are a bigger challenge to find the sweet spot.

      A shooting tip, that many of us have figured out is to shoot the bands and not the frame. Meaning that when I aim, I'm looking at the band and not the fork. Also, PFS shooting practice with projective aiming helps a lot. Some people call this intuitive shooting, but really it is as Arturo calls "Projecting the line of sight down the band to the target". A natural frame with angled fork tips are a good way to learn this technique.
