I used a spent 45 ACP shell. Held it with multi tool and heated the mouth. I used it to melt a hole thru both ends of the folded straps.

Now that we got the gourmet in, we are working on the other end. We need to sew a seam 1&1/2" down, across the straps to make a loop to run the gourmet strap end thru. This makes the two loops. One goes below the elbow, the other above the elbow.

Total time was < 30 minutes.

For larger arms you may need more than 34" strap. For longer arms you may need more tha 36" of paracord

I used a strap off something I had laying around, had a buckle which allowed me to make a loop without having to sew. It would take me longer to go find it, then it took me to make it.

Thanks for the how-to Rusty. I'll have to make one of these up sometime...

On a side note your neighbor has a unique opinion of what constitutes a yard ornament lol

Thank you Mr Rusty Craine. I was tossing up between buying one or making one for myself, I think I will have a go now.

I keep revisiting the Formmaster. People have derived real benefit from it. But how many here have used it and had to ditch because the rope seriously snaps against their face? I run into a few other people that have the same problem with it. Seems like a good way to train your self to have a truly outstanding flinch.

I shoot 3 under, either index or middle finger to corner of mouth, thumb folded down and "hooked" behind jaw line.

Is there some way to mitigate this? Or is it simply an unavoidable result of my anchor position?
