      Sweet! Looks like a lot of fun and a cool looking design. Color clashes with your shoes. :eek:

      Looks like your PFS shooting is doing well!

      Let's be honest, EVERYTHING clashes with those shoes. The Tony Turtle however, looks great no matter what you wear.

      It's ok Mike, we love you as long as you are shooting great looking slings!

      I have a hard time getting used to the younger generation clothing styles and colors. I'm from the generation that wore high top converse when they were first invented. Where are my white over the athletic socks?

      By the way, if you changed that target center circle to a smaller simple black dot, I get your accuracy would improve. You need a focus point in your target. But still great PFS shooting!

      You're not that much older than me. Anyway bought them for a spartan race which got cancelled because the covids and they're to dang expensive not to wear. It was either turquoise or purple with pink.

      And I rocked the psychedelic colored tall ass Chuck Taylors that folded down and parachute pants back in the day.[emoji41][emoji41]

      Even compared to my traditional Tiny Turtle this is not a natural pointer for me. Ill keep at it, I like challenges

      That's very nice handy piece your holding there. I like it a lot!
      A PFS is what's still missing in my flock of slings, but it is on the list.
      Sometimes I find it hard to explain my wife, why I need another slingshot (no.7), since I started out slinging only two months ago. Talking about excuses: Anybody got a list of excuses? :)

      You don't know what you're missing with no PFS. Ive been lucky with slings I've only bought three the rest I've made or traded for. Mostly made including my PFS.

      Most PFS are simple and easy to make. Except for the Conus I made these with no fancy materials just stuff I find. The black and white one is a skim board, turquoise is a pvc pipe, an oak board cut, a natural fork and the split frame is a beech cutting board. These are just the ones I kept[emoji16]

      Thanks for the inspiration Stankard, I definitely will take it on board. The more I'm on this forum, the more I see possible slingshots in everything I look at! Love it!
