    I am not obsessive about finding the perfect pouch or anything, this is perfectly normal. :confused:

    Yeah, yeah I know, just order them from Ray, I agree Ray's pouches are fantastic but where is the fun in that? LOL

I am 49 years old and have been shooting slingshots for most of my life. Started out as a youngster with a natural tree fork made by my grandfather then moved up to commercial large tube slingshots, I preferred the ones without the wrist brace. I shot a commercial marksman for the better part of 20 years with a variety of different tubes but trumark tapered tubes were my all time favorite. Then a random internet search showed me the world of modern slingshots and the rest is history. Currently I either shoot a Simple Shot Scout or a homemade slingshot made by myself or Toddy. I am a dedicated flat band shooter with .030 latex being my favorite band material.

      I hear ya. I actually don't mind making my own slingshot pouches; its become part of the hobby for me. I've got a couple stacks of old pouches just like that in a drawer. :) I now keep my favorites on these carabiners for easy access. :)

      The pouch is the difference between eating well or not and worth every second of the effort it takes to get it right imho

      That's a brillant idea, I have some of those wire key loop thingys that will work great for this.
