Sling Shot shooting
Are shooting marbles? I have become addicted to the TV show Z Nation. One of the guys shoots a sling shot. The character occasionally shoots little black disks, like a thick black metal coin. I know it is TV but for using a sling shot as a weapon, what would you use for the projectile? Maybe you have said and I forgot but since watching the TV show and seeing how well you can hunt with yours; I have been thinking more and more that it really can be a weapon. Yes, I need to really get practicing, I am still a novice.
**PS great dog.
Plain ole' lead fishing sinkers work very well for slingshots. They have the sectional density to carry well and pack a punch.
Steel ball bearings are almost as good, and a little more eco-friendly.
Marbles are fun, and they work well for small game. I just hate it when I miss and they shatter against a rock.
For taking out sentries, though, depleted Uranium is my all-around favorite, when I can get it...
I shoot marbles a lot but hex nuts rocks lead 36 Cal to 50 Cal clay balls hex nuts with lead center arrow darts washer glued together jaw breakers the arrow s and darts are lethal a marble will shatter a finger bone with ease 40 Cal lead will cave in a deer skull at 15 yards
Got a bunch of .44 cal lead bullets that seem to work well.
I keep a sling shot in my Get Home gear, a valued tool in small game and defense in certain circumstances .
You can cast any thing, that will both fit in the pocket, and pass the Y.
One could for that matter cast a stone with a note attached, that needs to be stealthy, to a team member .
one can even load I with bird shot ,for most any winged game a shot gun might be used.
Shot .36 lead balls through 1/2" plywood before with one.
00 split shot, and a wrist rocket Amazon.com : Beeman Marksman Laserhawk Folding Slingshot : Hunting Slingshots : Sports & Outdoors
Just did this for fun , seems to work OK.
There are any number of ways to wear it ,completely reversible an either hand.
Plus it keeps you hand free .
Cool thread again. I'm getting into these types of weapons because..........Rocks are free.
@Bishop have you ever tried shooting lug nuts? I read somewhere that they can serve as good ammo. I know you mentioned hexnuts above but lug nuts are bigger and I am wondering if too heavy to shoot.
Yes I do also I cast lead inside of the holes on hex nuts or take short bolts and thread not on them
I also cast lead into a socket head that I screw to a board that are devastating
Thanks. I like the picture with the coins so I can get an idea of the sizes you use. Appreciate it.
These are used in warfare and could be deadly and quiet.
