    I'm not sure that you are a good advertisement for no harm....... your contributions appear to have the grammar, the coherence and the spelling all completely kicked out of them...

    Quite interested in this - I'm still using the stick that I made years ago whilst holed up in a hut in a storm in the back of the Orongorongo's years ago.
    Going to have another go I reckon ad making a shooting stick.

    Do you wait a year on all wood?Do you seal the ends to slow the drying process?
    And where do you get the metal ferrules? I was rough and just used a roofing type bolt and wound it in, has worked for ages...

    cheers
