Sometimes good things happen quickly and out of the blue. My wife Kay was recently presented with an opportunity to take a full time elementary school teaching position again. She spent a decade as a public school teacher in Texas many years ago. After meeting with the School District Admin. and Principal we have decided to accept the job offer! Here's what that means for us. We have exactly two weeks to pack up our home, pack up our shop, find a new home and move everything to another city exactly two hours away for the start of Kay's new class of 1st grade children!!! That is SHORT notice, and of course took us by surprise, but we are confident we can do it. Ridgecrest, California will be our new home town and new headquarters for A+ Slingshots and Slingbows business. As you might guess, we will not be taking any more orders until we get our new home and shop squared away. I hope to be back up and running in my new woodshop in about three weeks or so. I'm finishing out our last batch and shipping them in the next few days. If you have placed an order in the last week or so it's going to take longer than usual because I simply can't get them done before the move. We do hope you understand and that you will be patient with us during this important move and life transition. We feel that this move will be a blessing for us personally and even good for our business in the long run. Thanks for all your great and continued patronage! As soon as we're back up and running we'll put something up here, so keep a watch out!
Best as always,
Perry and Kay

To HELP US ALL SAVE TIME... please include a list of the items you want to purchase, how many of each, color or wood choice, band choice, how many replacement bands and your ammo choice. After payment is sent and clear your order will be added to the queue and made in the order it was received. All sales are final.

We appreciate your patronage and patients!
We usually have nothing in stock on a shelf except for ammo and raw materials. Unlike big box stores or makers who have gone the way of plastic molding, foreign importing, cnc cutting or the "build a pile" and hawk our wares on every forum and street corner until sold out route, we still custom build each of our products specifically for customers in the old school small batch tradition of quality vs. quantity.
As individuals we have a deeply ingrained strong work ethic and a business model where we are committed to handcrafting the highest quality custom products that anyone would be proud to own and use...including ourselves! The simple reality is, that it just takes as much time as it takes...lately 8 weeks (sometimes a bit more) on builds, but usually only 2-3 days on replacement bands and ammo)... it's just the reality of our growing "Mom and Pop" business. When each batch is finished and shipped we go on to the next large batch in line in the queue. It usually takes us several weeks on each batch, and we almost always have many batches in line. We so appreciate each of you choosing to purchase from us here at A+ and for having the continuing desire to own and shoot our one-of-a-kind designs and "Top of the Class!" products.
