    I love how supportive your woman is everytime you learn something new. If I had a woman that supportive it would definitely be enough motivation for me to push through and keep learning new things. You have a great woman, she is a definite keeper. Do not lose her I swear. Look how she runs into your arms everytime you accomplish something. That's so beautiful and amazing. Now that's LOVE.

    G-day mike, when you are shooting a slingshot (or bow, for they have the same principle) keep the back arm (the one with the ball) strait back, parallel with the ground you so that your elbow points at the target, will find you will be able to shoot higher pound bands with out pain, as you will with the technique you are using now. you will also achieve higher accuracy

    I've made a slingshot from a tree fork, no way for me to aim with "sights" as the rubber is too strong to even considération pulling the pouch to my face.. In one weeks I was able to hit flower at 10m almost every time.. Guess all those years of shotgun shooting really helped with instinctive shooting xD
