    That's pretty cool. One of my buddies when I was growing up was pretty good at hitting flying bottle caps with a .22 pellet rifle.

    I once took out a crow with a rubber band and a cut clothes hanger clip. My friend said you can't do that again. I told him I don't need to I did it already.
    The bow shooting marksmen are really cool.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    This old boy isn't quite as young and his choice of weapon is cheaper but his talent is still pretty amazing...

    I was pretty good with slingshots when I was kid. We used hazelnut "Y" branches to make them and rubber bands from old bicycle inner tubes.
    Normal stones were the ammo.

    I could shot a matchbox from 10 meters away without aiming, but those were the old good days. Today my nephews don't even know what slingshot is.

    The fact that you could build them and shoot with them afterwards is something that can't be forgotten.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I also dream of a shop with north light where my hands can be busy, my soul rest and my mind wander...
