It's just the fork for now, I'll be attaching the bands this afternoon and hopefully making a larger natural aswell... I didn't mean to make a PFS for my first slingshot, but atleast I was able to learn a thing or two from it.I'll add a picture of the finished slingshot this evening.

I think that I would try shooting a little wider fork to start out with, then later go to the little ones, if desired. -- Tex

I had planned on making a larger one to get used to shooting then start using my pfs(which wasn't planned to be so small)

I've got a question though, guys. With this small slingshot and it's approx 3/4" pouch, what size ammo should i be shooting? 1/4" steels?
