    My son was interested in the Wishbone shooters he saw at both the Tennessee shoot and the one I had at home. A trade was arranged with Flipgun, who has a hankering for pepper jelly I make. Below is what my son collected in return. We will need to send more jelly assuming Paul has survived his first round (he was on his second glass of milk when last we communicated).

    Thanks Paul

My name is Dan Hood. I am a civil structural design engineer who slipped past the age of 40 a few years back and I proudly play with “kid’s” toys.

Growing up in India, I was exposed to slingshots (known as catapults over there) at a very young age. My first was a natural fork out of a tamarind tree banded with bicycle inner tube rubber. It was a rock lobber at best. This progressed into a few board cuts before I lost interest around 12 years of age. As I moved around the next few years, the first board cut I ever made just followed me around in my sock drawer. Not really sure why, but it just did. In early 2014, some 28 years later, I stumbled upon this weird German guy (Jorg Sprave) shooting insane rubber operated devices. I was hooked…again. Since that time I have built 100+ custom slingshots per year and have never looked back. It has been a wild ride! And yes, the first board cut I ever made is still with me, now proudly hanging on the shop wall.
