    Howdy from Terra!
    When I was a youngling six decades plus a few years ago, I had either a Daisy or Marksman slingshot, until age 7 or so, when I got my first .22 rimfire rifle.
    With the cost and rarity of .22 rimfire ammo now days (plus the fact I sold all my guns but a .54 caliber Thompson Center Hawken, a .50 caliber Traditions "Trapper" pistol (both percussion) and a Kimber Ultra TLE compact .45 ACP 1911 pistol) I decided to go back to the slingshot.
    I only have 4 slingshots now. One, a Marksman that came with a whisker biscuit and one arrow, is roughly 956 leagues away, at a friend's place in "South Florida".
    With me I have a couple inexpensive no name flat band, a (blue) Southwest Archery Supply tubes slingshot with wrist brace and adjustable draw length, and a shepherd's sling. (I still need to figure out how to use the shepherd's sling, and be accurate with it. The conflicting info on YouTube is a great help.

    Welcome, Ugly!!! The simplicity of slingshots seems to draw most of us towards it!

    Welcome from Arizona. Nothing like slingshots and for me surpasses the fun of guns these days. Glad you joined and hope you enjoy the forum.
