    With everyone seeming to be in a pickle frenzy since the release of the flipping pickle I thought I'd get out my pickles for a reminder of what I have. I've always liked pfs frames both making and shooting them for the best part of 5 years. I remember when people used to mock them saying they would never be taken seriously and when the 1st slingshot magazine was in the making and the editor was looking for content it was at the time when Terry had come out with the 1st bone grips and I told him to get in touch it would make a good article. His response was "pickle forks are not proper catapults" I'm not going to say anymore on that lol.

    Anyway here's what I've got and I've shot them all. 20210124_185201.jpg 20210124_190025.jpg

    Nice Muz nice great collection, ì Love pickles to fact is that it is all i shoot now well apart from milbro/ stanley now and again. Think it is the pocket ability for me and they hone your shooting skills by making sure everything is the same shot after shot if it ain't your going to get bit ..Lol
    Lots of them aren't banded come on give them some love . With tubes of course

    Pickle Forks are not proper frames... Inhave to agree with that.

    They're Rock N Roll frames!
    They're the Outlaw frames!
    They're next step in Flippery Evolution.
    They're tiny bits of dynamite fun that set them apart from proper... more like motorcycles aren't sedans... like helicopters aren't airplanes... like bourbon for breakfast... like a face melting guitar solo.

    And PFS Shooters are awesome like no other Flipsters.

    Ive made a lot over the years, its probably my favourite frame to build for sure, trouble is I keep giving them away, like to share my frames. I used to own one of yours but sold it on to someone who was wanting one of your frames. I had my fun with it so I thought I'd let someone else enjoy it like I did.

    Great looking PFS frames. It was the black PFS Colt in that picture that perked my interest to give PFS shooting a go. So I have Muz to thank for planting the seed of inspiration. Arturo watered that seed, and now look where we are! My PFS selection is far larger than my gapper frames. Someday I'll take a collection picture, But afraid my wife might see it! Doing my best to shoot all of them all the time.

    Great stuff Muz, thanks for starting this and sharing. I have a feeling your about to add another one or two!

    I got a little Chuck Berry riff when I wrote it.

    Can flick a flip like raaangin' a bell.
    Go, Darrell, go...
