Topics I've Started

Clean Living Pays Off

18 May 2017 - 01:29 PM

I sent a prize off to Ibojoe for winning the bark-on contest and, low and behold, I opened my mail this morning and found the same slingshot Joe won the contest with.  A beautiful cedar shooter.  Truly unique and very much appreciated.  Joe, thank you!  What a treat.

It has light tubes and is set up for butterfly.  I'm going to start with 1/4 steel and see how it shoots. 

Cool.

Thanks again Joe,

Winnie

How Small Can You Go?

16 May 2017 - 11:15 AM

With time my slingshots have gotten smaller and smaller (I'm talking full size hunting bands).  Granted, I carry a slingshot in my pocket all the time and so I am inclined to think in terms of small for the sake of packability, yet I do seem to prefer smaller slingshots as time goes on.

 

Does anyone else out there find themselves going smaller?

 

Here is a picture of my old Altoids can slingshot that I how carry compared to a Scout:

 

Bark on natural contest

Check out the contest in the "General Slingshot Discussion" section.  I announced it here so those who build naturals will also see it.

Contest: Bark On Natural

25 April 2017 - 06:42 PM

I thought I would run a little contest.  What I am looking for is a nice natural with some of the bark left on it.  How much is left on is up to you, though there should be enough bark that it is obviously part of the design.  Here are three naturals from my gallery to give you an idea of what I am thinking of:

 

The prize will be a Kangaroo "pouch" naturally made by males of the species, with a lanyard and a magnetic dispenser set up for 7/16 steel balls.

 

Let's run it until midnight May 6th.

 

Let's see what you've got.

Note:  I have decide to do a second Bark-On contest at the end of the summer.  It will give everyone a chance to keep an eye out throughout the summer for that fork that has something "just a little different".  I'll make a "Boiled Leather Ammo Pouch" as a prize then.  They're pretty cool.
