Today I am going to teach you how to shoot a slingshot and some different ammo you can use.

Step 1: What You Need:

I recommend a daisy powerline its a really good slingshot and you can get it from academy for under $10. Ammo? You can use all sorts of stuff marbles, fishing sinkers, arrows, glass balls, small rocks, and the stuff you buy at the store just to name a few.

Step 2: Your Stance

If your a righty put your right foot forward and your left foot behind slightly pointed outward, nees slightly bent.And for lefties do the opposite.

Step 3: How to Hold It

Again for righties take your arm stick it under the arm thingy come up and grasp the handle. Put your thumb on the little notch in between the crosshair things that hold the elastic bands.

Step 4: How to Shoot

You have your stance, you have your grip now its time to shoot take your ammo and hold it between your thumb and index finger and hold it in the pouch. Pullback and put your target in between the crosshairs and release.

Step 5: Conclusion
