Slingshot Shooting. Jack H. Information about slingshot shooting is generally handed down from father to son or daughter, or, is gotten from neighbors or other acquaintances.
This type of hand-me-down information is good but it is usually vague, inadequate, or possibly even down-right erroneous. The subject of safety is emphasized through out the book.
Without emphasis on safety the sport of slingshot shooting could wither and die. Slingshot design and construction is discussed so that the beginner can decide what to look for when buying a slingshot or what to incorporate when building one from scratch. Aiming and shooting techniques are discussed in detail. Shooting accuracy can be inhibited for life if incorrect techniques are used when a person first starts shooting. Should you hold the slingshot in your right or left hand?
What is an anchor point or cant angle? It's all in the book. In addition to the above, many other subjects are discussed. Target systems -- designed so that the ammunition can be retrieved and used over and over again. Ammunition -- what are the modern day shooters using for ammunition?
How much practice time is required to become a good shooter? And, what is involved in using your shooting skills for tournaments and for hunting? It's in the book. When I was a kid, I was rarely without my trusty slingshot. Whether I was sent out to bring the cows home for evening milking or going over to the neighbors for a dozen eggs, I always had my beloved slingshot with me.
I couldn't walk in the woods without scanning the trees looking for a suitable fork to make yet another slingshot I find myself still doing that. I couldn't walk down a road without constantly scanning for round stones suitable for ammunition all the local roads were gravel at that time.
I love the shooting sports. I have several rifles, shotguns, and pistols but rarely do I ever shoot any of them. My slingshots are another story; I now practice target shooting, with my slingshots, at every opportunity. During the middle part of my life I went many years without shooting a slingshot because of other interest pocket billiards and obligations makeing a living. Looking back, I regret not making room in my life for slingshot shooting during that period.
By profession I was a Hydrologist. I spent my entire career working for the U. Geological Survey. During that time I authored twenty-five Professional Papers. After retiring, I wrote three very successful books on pocket billiards. Slingshot Shooting Jack H.
