I gave it my best shot (pun intended) today but I can't shoot well when it's too cold to feel my fingers! I need to get everybody out of here and get the indoor range going.

I shot terrible today. I was having a hard time even hitting the peice of paper the target was drawn on. I think I'm going to hang up the slingshot for a couple of days to see if it is just fatigue. I've been shooting around 500 shots a day for the last 4 days (winter break) and my hands are starting to hurt. So be back in a couple of days with 5 stars!

I have to hand it to you guys shooting in the cold.  Cold is a distraction that has to be put out of the mind.

I tried 20m, but realized after looking and talking with a few members, that a change was needed.

 

Edit: 20m and above use a 5oz tuna can to make your ring.. I feel that is a fare assist and still makes it a chalange. as far as 10m the soda can remains,

Good, It will be tough to get stinkin' badges with such a tiny target. As for now, I will be happy if I can get 4/5 on the 10m target  <_<

Great shooting Ray. Could you tell us your .04 band dimensions? They sound real good(snapping that 3/8 into the cardboard!). They look pretty small.

Thanks guys, and MJ we do shoot alike.

 

@ Beanflip,  I like the .04 tie to tie at 7 inches.    I use mm on the taper so it is 20mm at the fork tie and 13mm at the pouch tie.
