Frameless slingshots
Jun 16th, 2019 at 10:42pm
 
I searched slingshots and find it difficult to believe nobody has discussed this before. Anyway one reason i faded from the sling for a bit was i became addicted to slingshots. Frameless sling shots have been my go to. So now i always carry my sling in my backpocket along with a frameless flatland slingshot and a tube slingshot around my wrist along with a pocket full of bearings. Please don't hate me for cheating on you I love you both and could never choose. Any other frameless shooters here.

I actually started slingshots because I found my old wrist rocket and wanted to compare the two. Slings and slingshots cannot be equally compared. Both allow for endless experimenting. Biggest advantage to slingshots I can shoot year round in my basement..

    Of course the big advantage to slingshots is accuracy.  I can easily hit a target the size of a squirrel consistently with a sling shot.  Not so with a sling.  The sling's advantage is power and range. I agree that the two can't be equally compared.

Die armen Eichhörnchen 🐿.
Aber es ist möglich. Sie müssen nur etwas mehr üben.
Gib dem 🐿 eine Chance. 😁

  Jaegoor, I've never actually hunted squirrels or anything else with a slingshot.  Only targets.

Rat Man. Da bist du mir sofort sympathisch. 😁
Ich finde es für absolut falsch zu töten um einem Sport nachzugehen.
Ich habe es schon oft gesagt. Wenn sie töten wollen, töten sie einen fliegenden Tennisball.
Schaffen sie das? Wenn ja, haben sie gute Fähigkeiten für die jagt. Schaffen sie es nicht, üben sie weiter.
Aber lassen sie Tiere in Frieden leben.
