Well I can't find the beginning source of some of these ideas, but I can say that from my own pondering my brain told me to do this :)

 

I have attempted to "perfect" this, in order to display and share to the community, but my ideas sometimes exceed my ability to work on them to a final project (with the exception of simple little mods :).

 

Anyway I can tell you that the thread that sparked me to create this thread was Henry's HERE

I have shared this to some, but its open to any crafter to make use of what they see useful.

 

 

Thanks for watching

I haven't seen any of Bill's videos doing this to a slingshot? Of course I wouldnt be surprised that through the years he had touched just about everything slingshot related, probably many  others have as well.

 

I guess I can pack up my bags, no need to regurgitate information. I guess we will never know what:s new, since I dont spend my time researching something that I think of. I usually use my research time, for thoughts I do not have.

 

 

Thanks

Oh ok, I have seen that, and you are right that is a "Sling rifle " no doubt about that. However, I was explaining an alternative to the sling rifles that are out there, but using the same concept used to aid in accuracy using a slingshot you already have. One would hold and draw the same as they would with their slingshot, but add a guide for consistency.

If you are into golfing, they have a lot of products that you can use to " train" your form.

I have inconsistencies with the extended arm of the SS holding hand.It sometimes feels as though my extended arm is at a slight parallax position to the target. I can still hit target  even though it feels my form is off. This is a cool training aid, even just using the dowel/stick  guide without firing ammo,  I think will help develop that muscle memory to 'feel' where my extended arm, pouch draw, & eye should be (all aligned).  Also, I recall someone posted video giving pointer to move the whole upper body, pouch drawn hand & extended arm as a  single unit in relation to target. This is helpful ... thanks!

It'll be interesting to see how this works for some of the more rigid-type shooters.  As for me, Mr. Duck, I'm too much of a rag-doll, loosey-goosey type of shooter to use anything that constraining.  I can see the wisdom in it though as a training device for some.

Thanks for the comments guys.

Bill, when I was young and single I liked my women same as the way you shoot :P I know what you are saying and agree (not for all). I know I am more of a rigid shooter, but couldn't use any form of this for a long time. I do see using it, for some of my more precision shots, that I don't do on the regular.

Thanks again

As I was watching my video, after you made that comment, you are right, this would work well even without ammo, especially looking in a mirror or recording it for review... The lone shooter needs all the assistance they can get .

Thanks, man. I rarely search for things that I think up, and the only time I know it's not new is when someone else inspires me to do something... Don't worry, I won't pack up me bags , just yet :P

That's cool. New shooters could definitely get some thing out of that for being consistent.

Heres a treat, line things up with your nose and you will hit it, no joke.

Gracias amigo for the tip!  I also have a good size nose :)

 

P.S. @ Skillet - I believe that part of face being an anchor point ...  drawing the pouch to maybe the outside corner of your schnozzle?  I'll have to experiment!
