This thread will have some of the slingshots I make within it.

I make a wide variety of slingshots and am constantly experimenting with materials and new designs... I've been fortunate to be blessed with a mind and aptitude towards design and innovation plus the ability to actually turn many of my mental conceptualities into reality... so check this thread often to see some of the new stuff!

Almost anything you see in this thread can be made for you by contacting me via PM or by going to my website: http://www.PocketPredator.com

Many times there's a design evolution process involved in what I produce... like starting with one of my old designs (which has influenced more than a few others out there in their creations)... the Ranger, notice the very familiar shape and lines:

Turns into an "Ice Ranger" made from bullet resistant polycarbonate:

Which turns into a palm swelled and pinky holed version:

Which in turn influences the design behind the SEAL Sniper setup for target shooting applications:

Most of these can be made for you by contacting me via PM or by visiting my website: http://www.PocketPredator.com

I have the polymer ranger and I can say it came with too powerful bands for me. My hands are shaking a little bit when i shoot I guess that's why my result on the contest are not so good

I just have the seal sniper burl walnut in Bill's post above. I thought that was what DH was referring to.

Hey, so what's the TAT from purchase to shipping?
I purchased a Hathcock target sniper two weeks ago and nothing yet.
I have been trying to get shipping info, just to make sure my neighbors haven't pilfered an incorrectly dropped shipment...which happens a little too often.

Depending on country being sent to and other factors such as how many orders are ahead 2-3 weeks. Or possibly more if going to a country where customs can get kind of strict.

I guess business is pretty good.
I live in Houston TX.
Do you make all the products on your own? Maybe it's getting closer to time for expansion..(or maybe I'm just to darn impatient..).

As a matter of fact I have been doing the majority of the work... but there is an expansion planned. Just waiting on a few things to get settled, then we should be able to do quite a bit more.
