    I have seen a few videos on you tube on the subject,but i have never shot one,i was wondering if any of the members on here have ever made,owned,or shot one before and if so.I just wanted to know how was the accuracy,and how you actually aim it for target shooting as far as what part of it do you use as your sight reference point,and pretty much any information that a guy or girl would want to know if you had one or wanted to make one,on the use of it band making anything of that nature,i would love to hear anything you can offer on the subject,as soon as you wake up from the coma my babbling probably put you in :D

      I've ever held or sot one. To be honest, I am hesitant to try. I just figured out how to shoot a PFS.

      the subject was brought up on another forum and it kind of renewed a old interest that i had in them once so i thought i would offer the subject here and see what we could work out:)

      I love the concept of a stickshot, just never held or shot one. Don't know much about them other than the pouch is tied to cord instead of rubber.

      Shooting a stickshot is no different to shooting a pfs. The only issue I have with them is that of the potential for ammo to get hung up in the pouch and end up on a return to sender mission. It hurts, trust me.

      I think I will stick with the PFS for now.

      thanks it's people with experience like yours that helps fill in the gaps,like i said i have never held or shot one either,but it seemed to be something a person could make pretty quick if you needed something in a survival situation,thanks again Todd

      For what it is worth stick to a Pfs. Size is not too different, and you should not get unexplainable rts

      the RTS concern has kept me far from it, I have tested stick shots only a few shots ... also don't like the paracord pouch attachment which shortens the power stroke ... I am happy with PFS's ...

      @Big Ron the concept of a stick shooter is a great one imo. If you could ensure the pouch fully opened every time it would be a great addition to any pocket. As I see it though there are no advantages over a pfs, just the cool factor and the scope for natural and interesting sticks is endless, whereas finding good and interesting natural forks is a lot harder.

      PFShooter (DGUI) has posted videos shooting a stick shooter before. Check his channel.
