  • im sure someone already told you. But the flat band sling shots are more accurate than those tube band sling shots with the wrist support. If you try out one of those I see a lot of people are really really accurate with one of those.

  • You can tell that you have never had a lesson in slingshot safety. Very shortly you will have an accident that will leave you blind in one eye or worse. You need safety glasses and you need to learn proper safety in drawing the elastic bands Never, ever draw to your face or eye. Might I suggest You go to and watch all the videos that will teach you what you need to know about the equipment and how to assemble and use it properly and SAFELY. Pay attention to everything that Fowler shows you in several of the videos concerning the bands and straps. Everything from sizing them, to mounting them, to using them. You might even find a better and safer slingshot.

  • TLDR hold the sling/pouch in your dominant hand the handle in the other once you have it aimed right, try to keep your arms rigid, and pull. It's really satisfying to hit soda cans and buckets If you take too long to let go, it might slip a bit and miss, try to go with your instinct and let go when it feels right. Don't hold it like a gun, hold it like a bow, don't hold it too close to your face. And try to get some eye protection, like a contruction-site pair of glasses. From what I know, they're pretty cheap.

  • Here in Canada the weakest sling shots have as much power as our pellet guns (without PAL).

  • I'm actually great at slingshot. And once I destroyed a light bulb in street from 100 meters away. So pro tip. - bigger the rubber strings is better the distance. And smaller the strings the easier it gets. Because of the consistency of them but they can't do long distance shot. They lose power when shooting long distance. (careful when using single string ones cuz sometimes shots can come back to your side. Once I got a hit to face. It was bad ) be careful 😉

  • Me and my friend got into this kind of thing once and bought two of them, then went to an open field by his house and shot a bunch of empty cans. Then it started to rain we were cold and wanted to go home but didn’t want to stop shooting cans with our slingshots, so we went to his driveway being two 11 year old idiots and put the cans at the edge of the driveway and tried to hit all the cans down before it got dark. Then we started to get cocky and thought we had “dead shot accuracy” and did it with our eyes closed. Then he shot, it bounced off the floor and hit the back of a neighbors car. But don’t worry it’s all paid for and done, and we ended up burying them in the open field in a big pile of gravel.
