    The weather up here has finally turned for the better. Got out and killed a couple cans today.

    I have an alley set up at the side of my house 33' (standard shooting distance), with an ammo catchbox and ability to hang targets. I don't hunt, only target shoot. On a good day I can hit the head off a match with 3/8" steel.

    Anyone else shoot or am I the only Weiner still playing with slingshots in his 40s? I took it back up as a hobby a few years ago as well as making them.

    This can barely survived... :thumbsup:

    Spring cleanup of my catchbox. Installed a lower line to hang 1-2" spinners on.

    A few of the handmade frames I've made from natural hardwood tree forks. All are freeform designed on the fly, whatever works best with the natural shape of it has one, if it doesn't, I try to give it some.

    I may have posted these in the woodworking section but figured I'd post up a few again.

    They usually start out like this. Cut, planned out (often changed on the fly), roughed to shape with knife and files, sanded from 40-3000gt or so, branded and then oiled.

    Nah, I wish. That's a cast Aluminum made by ProShot UK based on a Mark Seljan deisgn.

    It's my daily shooter.
