Will do.

Thanks for joining and posting.

While you're here. take a look around and feel free to join in the discussions.

There's a REALLY great group of posters here, many very knowledgeable and interesting people. The site owerners and moderators are GREAT. They do a fantastic job of keeping things organized and keeping out the riff raff. This site is true gem in an ocean of mediocrity.

Looks like spam to me but I could be wrong. I thought I was wrong once but I was mistaken. Go figure...

I posted it because I thought it was unusual and interesting.

It's OK Max, no one is asking you to buy one. However, if you ever feel the need to give one away as a gift, I'll send you my address.

Are there stronger bands available? Would be a good platform for a whisker biscuit for some short range hunting.

If you have a vivid imagination, it looks vaguely pornographic

I like the fact that bands are easy to change if needed but the way my hands shake I do better with a slingshot that has an arm brace to help steady it. I used to be very good with one.

There is a comparison here of the Montie Gear slingshot and the trusty old wrist rocket (with the brace):
