    I've been bugging my adult kids, my brother and my dad to shoot with me anytime I see them.

    My son split one of his old skateboard decks, glued em back together and cut himself out this shooter the other day. [emoji16]

    Yesterday, I showed him how to tie pouches and bands, and we spent a good amount of time out in the spring weeds and 80 degree whether blasting sprite cans with it. [emoji95]

    Typing this, I realize I'm passing the baton.
    My dad and uncle are who initially inspired me with their stories of fun with their homemade hickory forks hanging around their necks as kids, to start making slingshots.

    Man.. what a fun hobby this is. [emoji173]

      I saw @JMac9 and skate deck and headed straight to the image. This whole post is the best parts of Flippery. Transmitting the crafting ad sharing the shooting and necessary skills!

      Wooooooooo!!! This is great stuff.

      Also if he wants to make a little cash for latex and pouch supplies I would buy one of those scaled down to 80% or 85%.

      I showed him this thread and encouraged him to join the forum.

      He said "Thanks!!"

      @MakoPat He said he thinks he has enough of that purple deck for another one, and he'll get a hold of ya.

      Thanks, brother.
