Description

This powerful and compact slingshot folds down and can shoot out to a 100 yard range. It has a light aluminum frame and split leather pouch. It is equipped with surgical latex power bands, has a folding wrist lock, and a firm grip for aim and accuracy.

A slingshot is a small hand-powered projectile “Weapon”. The classic form consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the off hand (non-dominant hand), with two natural-rubber strips attached to the uprights. The other ends of the strips lead back to a pocket that holds the projectile. The dominant hand grasps the pocket and draws it back to the desired extent to provide power for the projectile – up to a full span of the arm with sufficiently long bands.

SLINGSHOTS AS MILITARY WEAPONS

Slingshots have been used as military weapons, but primarily by guerrilla forces due to the primitive resources and technology required to construct one. Such guerrilla groups included the Irish Republican Army prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Saddam Hussein released a propaganda video demonstrating slingshots as a possible insurgency weapon and tactics for use against invading forces.

Slingshots have also been used by the military to launch “Unmanned aerial vehicle” (UAVs). Two crew members form the fork, with an elastic cord stretched between them to provide power to launch the small aircraft.
