    I have a different way of shooting the marbles. I use the pointer finger of my left hand as a "catapult" and hold the marbles in place with the thumb and pointer of my other hand. To launch the marble it just let go of it, and it goes flying off.

    When I was a child, my life was to play marbles. Hours and hours, each day during years.

    But the marble was placed not between the second phalanx of the index finger and the last of the thumb, but directly between the tip of the index and the juncture between the first and second phalanges of the thumb. So the shoot was very strong and more controllable.

    You must consider that in "my time" there was not TV, PC, web, etc. Only cheap toys, and a lot of fantasy.  A bromstick was a horse, a stone was a car, etc.
