The fastest slingshot ever! 15 Shot magazine.

I think with this slingshot, I am hard to beat!

Question is if my innovation is still a slingshot... but it is rubber based, and has no trigger mechanism.

How is the accuracy? From a theoretical standpoint I can see how a traditional slingshot could be very accurate, but it seems like you'd be losing a good deal of precision hitting the projectile ball with the striking mechanism.

Cool concept, I don't mean to be raining on your parade, I'm just curious.

Accuracy is OK, I am more precise with my regular slingshots. But then again, it is precise enough to hit a tree from 15 Meters!

It's just a fun thing to play with. I guess a longer barrel would improve the accuracy some. I may try that later on.

So I sound like an Austrian? Hmm... never realized that. But I'll be back, too... with more slingshots!

Had to strengthen the welding a bit, the kick is enormous.

Added a longer barrel and attached the much stronger black bands. Much more accurate now!

Sounds like a German accent to me, though it's similar to Austrian... so I can hear the AHNOLD at times. :P Very cool ideas!

Well, I think both the Germans and the Austrians would be able to distinct between those two accents. They may be close, but still there are differences.

Anyway, differences make our lifes colorful!

If you think you will still be able to make it to Germany, sure, be my guest. Or do you think USPS will still work in a WTSHTF situation?

A crossbow is slow in reloading. A great sniper weapon, lots of power and accurate as well. But I think a good compound bow is the better choice. Or a slingshot! No ammo shortages, great compact size.
