    Hello everyone, I’m Joe from Spring Hill TN. I just recently got into the sport about 4 mounts ago and I’m loving it! I had a couple of slingshots when I was a kid but never was good with them and they fell to the side when I got into airguns and firearms. Recently I came across Zachary Fowler on YouTube and was amazed at what he was doing with slingshots. From there I started looking into it and found how big the sport really was. So I thought I would like to give it a try. I ordered my first slingshot from Simple Shot (Scout LT).

    Since then I’ve been practicing about everyday and I’m finally starting to get fairly proficient with it. I have also got the bug for collecting slingshots as well. I’ve been watching YouTube videos and chatting with people there and on Instagram trying to learn all I can about the sport/hobby. A few people that I’ve talked with sent me here and said it was a great community for the slingshot sport. Anyway hello and I apologize for the long post. I’m just passionate about my new found hobby.

    Wow! 200! I have 9 and 4 more on they way and I would like to make some as well. I like trying out different styles too! I started shooting frameless last week and I have a PFS on the way. I’m a little nervous about it but I’m going to give it a try though.
