Really I've not even looked at them at all until Gaz sent me the pic and gave me the figures !!
I'm really interested !
Looks like he puts some time into them !!
I've always used guns !
Bet there handy to drop in your pocket !
Are they hard to use does it take lots of practice ??

Not really hard to use but takes a lot of practice to get anywhere near accurate, consistently anyway

I wasn't asking for one ! I really like what you've done and it's about time I complimented you on something and you have made some crackers in my opinion !
I really have never looked into it !!
I'm very interested in the idea

Figures???...

it WAS free...a gift...

But he had orded single bands... and instead of re-ordering and them not being there in time... i offered that if he paid for the bands i had here... id fit them and post asap.....

So he had the for his trip up north at the weekend :thumbs: ....

He means figures as in ammo and ft/lb etc.

He said he didn't think they would kill a rabbit.

I said that double gold bands send a 12mm ball of ammo travelling at 170mph. Or so I read anyway.

Really appreciate the catty mate. Can't wait to have a go :thumbs:

They are, as long as you put in the time with them, to be honest i think you can either shoot a catty or you cant imo, i found it pretty easy to pick up and get accurate with it despite a few setbacks, wheras friends who ive tried to get into it just dont seem to have the natural ability to shoot one

Dont take too long to make bud...

Just finding the time to make them :thumbs: ...

Im.not 100% sure... but i believe double bands are slinging 9mm steel balls at 18+ lb/ft depending on set up..... think it may even be higher :yes: ....

Bigger ammo... is a little slower... but by fcuk... packs more of a punch :yes: ...
