I'm not sure of the maximum velocity, but the range is advertised at up to 100 yards.

In the hands of a skillful shooter -- and with a piece of 000 buckshot -- could be an effective device...

My guess is that it will be the next item on the dreaded "assault weapon" list....

Ahem...
Yep, I've got several... even one that uses little pulleys on extended forks like a crossbow!
I'll admit, though, the ones I have the most fun with are the one I made myself out of a Y-shaped branch and bicycle innertubes... growing up in KY it was the essential "Concealed Carry"!

I've got a bag full of my grandpa's clay marbles... I guard 'em like they were diamonds!

My grandfather made many fine slingshots that were real works of art. He never missed when taking small game with them. Of course back then even small kids were good shots because everybody had one. It's not as easy to master as a newbie might think and has frustrated many "survivalists."

I took it as an early sign of the impending Apocalypse when the slingshots disappeared from the back pockets of Big Boy statues all over my region. Actually boycotted Frisch's (local BB franchisee) for a time after that, in protest! Had already noticed this nasty trend a few years before that when Dennis the Menace was similarly disarmed.. :shock:

You had to remind me that it's an hour and a half ride to the nearest Big Boy. At least there's a Stuckey's along the way.

Uh oh....

I see the White Castle / Krystal's drivel starting all over again....

Nothing like a bag full of "sliders" or "gut bombs" to cause a sleepless night... :lol:

I had several slingshots when I was a kid. I hit many a bird and squirrel with them. It does take time, practice and patience to become proficient with a slingshot.
Flung out of the y was, marble, rocks, ice(ice does hurt), rubber balls out of the gumball machines, hot wheels cars, sticks, pennies, ball bearings, bb's and tons more things. I even tried to fling a piece of pizza once

Now I may have to go and get another slingshot soon.

Keys,

I live only a few blocks from one of the original Bob's here in SoCal. I was raised on Big Boys. My mom went to high school with Bob Wyan, who started Bob's, and we used to visit him all the time.

Want me to fed-ex you one? Maybe not, it would get soggy. Still the best hamburger ever made.

I dunno....

Keys,

Have you ever had the bacon cheeseburger at Hobo's in Key Largo? It is a "must do" if you've never tried it....that along with their onion loaf.

Man, I'm getting hungry!

I'll check out Hobo's next time I'm down that way. We have a chain called Cheeburger Cheeburger around here that is pretty good - even serves a one pound burger if you're crazy enough to order it. I haven't.

Note to all you sling shotters out there. This site liquidates stuff from TV shopping channels that didn't sell. They have a knock off of a wrist rocket for $3. Also a lot of airsoft stuff. Might be worth a look if you're on that trip.
