A birthday well spent

New video is online! It was my birthday, and I we drove over to Tobias's place for some fun shooting and a full blown party later on.

The walkback slingshot was presented in an earlier video already, but due to the lack of space it wasn't tested with steel balls before.



This test - requested by many viewers - was now performed. Watch how the team warms up and the reliably hit the hay bail from 44 yards distance!

The heavy steel ball goes in about two feet.

This weapon is highly portable and very powerful.

Also, as requested by the audience, the chest plate "Massacre Master" slingshot is tested on longer distances, too - with nice results.

  4. New string was used, survived but frayed a bit. I think I have to round the edges even further.

  5. Maybe try a nylon bush at catch or wax runners before use with candle wax?

    Any possibility of having desings or plans for your "Massacre Master" . I believe it is , or can be transformed into a repeating slingbow . I was thinking of building a smaller one to play around , but could not understand the mechanism !! Thanks from Brazil !!
