    Really do not get to this .. Shoots quite well if I may say so myself, but I can not shoot frameless!
    (I've only had one fork hit as long as I've shot so it's not a normal problem for me.)

    Either I get a bandslap over the index finger, or over the thumb. Tests to make adjustments to avoid this and puts two balls in the index finger!!! (Luckily I trained with 8mm clay balls 1632 tubes).

    The picture is 5 days after the incident, its still hurts!!

    It helps me to rotate my hand farther toward the target. That does bring the bands closer to the web of the hand, but I never hit that!

    I'm sorry for laughing but I've done it and it's a hard lesson. Hang in there.
