    Some of you guys been doing this a while, so let's see some finger grooves you all like... On that note maybe some of the new guys have come up with some cool finger grooves on their home mades. I've recently been thinking an extended forefinger groove to stabilize the slingshot might work, kinda like a revolver handle... Here is my first attempt. IMG_20210212_173343.jpg

      I guess this one has finger grooves but I regret putting the pinky groove in. I think it would have been better without it.
