Thinking about a slingshot? Truly an amazing video!
« on: January 29, 2011, 06:03:22 PM »
I've been thinking of mastering a slingshot for use in a survival scenario. I think the stealth factor is great for hunting or defence. Maybe this vid has been posted before but incase it hasn't, enjoy!

That there is some natural talent.  Can't explain it any other way. 

No neighborhood kids messing around on his lawn...  ;D

I'm beginning to like the idea of slingshots for hunting in a survival situation more and more. There's a modification that Dave Canterbury does to his so that you can use ball bearings or arrows with it. It's called the slingbow.

Amator posted the following video in another thread.

You can see a couple more videos at Dave Canterbury's Pathfinder School Youtube Channel

I didn't think about it until I was at work, but if you guys are interested in Sling shots, or sling shot any things...rifles, cannons etc, I am subscribed to a guy on Youtube.

He's (IMHO) THE master of all things sling shot. Jump on and search for: JoergSprave - He's a big German fellow who can occasionally be hard to understand, but he knows what's up with rubber.

Wow, I took a look at both Jörg's YouTube channel and Blog. He produces art just as much as functioning slingshots. And he's constantly working over different ideas as well.

Nice find! Thanks for the link!

May have to pay the fellow a visit and buy one. He's only two counties over from me.

Yeah Nic, he's a pretty cool dude, has all kinds of stuff going on, his own shops and all his own tools and such to engineer all his stuff. Would probably be a first round pick for me as a post-SHTF scenario engineer. (a la Emberverse)
