Now its time to try to get my Match Lighter Badge  :)

Not hit on first shot but anyway...

 

 

 

Thanks to pocketpredator.com for selling strike anywhere matches to Finland and Genoa Slingshot for pushing me to do this  :devil:

 

Well done!!! I will put in for your badge.

 

Cheers ...... Charles

Hi Charles

I apply with the linked video for the card cutter badge :woot:

I striated this bastard four times (with the third, fourth, seventh and eighth shot - without even noting it) before cutting it through with the ninth one. I hope everything is right with that, since the cut is about 2cm higher than the first hit which didn't cut at all (so the first hit didn't help the second one). 

 

Please find the video here: https://youtu.be/rpyg5zUEhl0

 

thanks again and have good time over there

greetings from Switzerland

PS: and this time I don't post my half dozen of failure videos; hitting but not cutting the card :banghead:

PPS: my card cutter slingshot (a rusty one).

STRICTLY speaking, according to the rules, this should not count, since the card was damaged by a previous shot. HOWEVER, going by the spirit of the rules, I am inclined to count this one. Your mirror setup was excellent, so we could see everything very well. Your cutting shot was above the damaged spot, and it was very clear from the video that it was a clean cut, not helped at all by that earlier shot. Frankly, I was even surprised that the cutting shot did not just rip the card at the previously damaged spot. You obviously hit the card very well and had good velocity. It was a clean cut ... I could not ask for more. I will put in for your badge.

 

Cheers .... Charles

thanks Marco. and yes, when discovering the clean cut I was really happy since I had a few not (resp. only half) successfull tries before hitting the card - but not cutting it through.

No ... I am definitely not an early bird now! I used to get up at 5 AM, but since I quit work some 12 years ago, I now do not get up until 8:30 AM. That is one of the very few benefits of getting old ... I get to sleep as late as I want.

 

Cheers .... Charles

Congrats Kalevala. Glad for you that you finally did it. Bad for us not being happy anymore to watch more of your struggling gambler attempt videos - it was very much of fun and huge motivation at the same time for me, not feeling all alone with my own (so far unfruitful) gambler attempts (I'll not post). Cheers and have beer.

Thanks GG, I think You should post Your unfruitful attempts too  :thumbsup:

I still do not quite understand why here on this forum is not more video making slingshot shooters (17448 members  :iono: ).

Hit or miss, I like them all  :target:
