    Thanks for doing this. I joined the Slingshot Stump when it started, for sentimental reasons. Bought a slingshot right after. Have not had time to really use it yet. So... not in, but yay for doing this.

    I've been watching you slingshot guys, want to join the clan now. This looks like a heck of one, would like to sling at some rabbits maybe.

    Very nice giveaway and very generous of you. Thanks for running the contest. Having just won a prize I'll bow out of this one for some other member to win.

    I'm in. I haven't played with a slingshot since I was a kid. I bet this would be a lot of fun. If I get good I may even squirrel hunt with it!

    I'm in! I too have been watching Fowler use his, and recently watched a MCQ bushcraft video and am amazed at just how accurate he is with it. I have a wrist-rocket my son and I play around with, but that's been my only slingshot experience in my life.

    Wonderful GAW, Thank you.

    You bet, I don’t have much to compare it too aside from 20 year old memories but I’ll post my impressions for sure.

    You still can. Come on over to the stump. There are a whole bunch of posts about rolling your own.

    Making it (whatever "it" we happen to be discussing) yourself is one of the really fun things about bushcrafting anyway.
