Mini sling pistol

I had so much leftover plywood from the big projects that I decided to make a small, fun pistol.

Design is pretty standard, but for a more gun like look I turned the three layers of 9mm plywood into a round rod, then attached the handle and trigger guard (made from 18mm plywood).

It shoots pencils (see how nicely the muzzle fits? Epoxy, mixed with sawdust, and an oiled pencil made this work).

I made a "devilled pencil" with a nail. Some string (constrictor knot) stabilizes the tip. Works great!

A fun little toy to play and plink.

  5. In my deleted comment I asked how strong the rubber is. I deleted the comment only because soon after posting it I found the needed information - that its draw weight is 51 lbs. I explain this because people may think that in the deleted comment I said something negative about the pistol or something... It is not so, and I feel obliged to explain this.
    BTW nice work. I like it.
