The Lowly Slingshot As A Stealth Weapon

Heads up, the following video has some graphic moments.
If you can't stand the sight of blood then maybe it would be a good idea for you to mosey your happy ass into the kitchen and make some fucking cookies instead there Sunshine.

I have seen some of this guy's videos before and I will have to admit that when I saw him with this version of sling shot that I thought to myself, oh, sure.

(Edited after I watched it again, notice the shirt he is wearing)

I will now admit I was very wrong. That was after the damn thing ricocheted!

At first when he was laying there I thought it looked like that bearing was embedded in his skull.
That thing could very definitely cause you to be dead.

I can remember using the trusty old Wrist Rocket when I was a kid and they are not a play toy. As a matter of fact I still have one along with an extra set of the rubber tubes already set up with a pouch that you can buy.

We used to fill the pouch up with BB's and go shoot frogs in a pond.
Very effective, a quiet shotgun if you will.

This is just to remind you that there are still ways to either defend yourself or go on the offensive that do not require gunpowder when circumstances allow.

H/T to my dad's pal for sending me the video in an Email.

I don't always use a sling but when I do, I prefer the traditional type. Stay ready my friends.

Good find.

A million years ago (back in the late 80s) there was a TV series called "Wiseguy" in which one of the characters, Roger Lococco, threatened people with BBs (though I can't recall if he ever actually killed anyone with one). The lead character, Vinne Terranova, did kill someone with one of Lococco's BBs after they cornered him. Gun-grabbers will just force people to use other weapons, just like the sword-grabbers accidentally created other martial arts way back when. Damn control freaks.

Wow, I never thought of using a load of BBs in a slingshot before, could make a good dog / cat 'Get Offa My Lawn Dammit' tool. I'm thinking about that Canterbury slingbow, quiet is nice.

Joerg's a character and a half. I love his "evil" laugh. Look for his video where he makes a rotary saw powered with a cordless drill. Epic stuff.

He faked it, he has posted a "how I did it" video as a followup.
