    The day after getting the great frames from John @cromag, it only got better with the delivery of another package. Our good brother Ron @The preacher sent me the latest Purpleheart PFS shooter that he made. I had no idea he was sending it to me. Ron just mentioned he put a package into the mail to me.

    This frame is absolutely beautiful and a great shooter as well. Ron changed up some existing designs to create this new shape and I can say it is a winner.

    Also, an added feature is the thumb lanyard. Not sure where the idea originated, but Darrell @SLING-N-SHOT shared this with me earlier this year. I shared it with Ron recently and it is a great alternative to the standard wrist lanyard. Easy to make and easy to use.

    Thanks Ron for the great looking and good shooting pickle fork shooter!

    Thanks Darrell, I like your surprise too! Good to be getting settled in the new place. Now if I could just find my sandpaper that I packed!

    Thanks Jason, I'll say that the thumb lanyard is the only design that I really feel comfortable using. Also, figured that since I am always encouraging others to shoot videos, I better do one myself!

    Thank you! It is a great frame and will get lots of use. Videos are actually pretty easy to make and the hardest one is the first one. Fun to show off good craftsmanship.

    Thank you Pat! Yes it has been a good week for sure. Only problem is picking which one to shoot next.

    Arturo, it is a pleasure to share the gift of shooting skills that you have taught us. I am hoping soon to video popping bottle caps with my Conus! Not only are you the Master Slingshot Shooter and Craftsman, but an awesome videographer as well. You have set the benchmark on sharing the fun and excitement of shooting with your simple but entertaining videos.

    Good to hear you like the BSB latex. I am still shooting it too. Only dislike is that it changes color with age, but still seems to shoot the same. BSB does have a yellow in the same thickness, but I have not yet tried it to compare.
