      I suppose this could be considered a product review;
      I have been using slingshots since I was a kid. I own the daisy one pictured above, and would consider myself an expert marksman. Recently, I had the opportunity to take multiple shots at a cornered raccoon who was raiding my garbage. Even with 8mm steel ball bearings, the coon endured several (9 or 10) body hits at close range. (12 feet) I could hear the impact of every shot, so I know I was hitting my mark, repeatedly. Although it must have been painful, there was no way this slingshot would deliver a lethal shot to a raccoon at twelve feet. I did, however succeed at driving it away from my garbage cans, which was my intent – not necessarily to kill it. The coon most likely had severe bruising, but the ball bearings did not penetrate the hide.
      Just a fun little slingshot, mainly to drive away a varmint, however if it were a bigger animal, a dog or something it would have just pissed it off.

        Here’s a sling-shot that weighs practically nothing, fits in a shirt pocket, and will put rocks the size of your fist through thick plywood….

        Takes just a bit more practice, but it’s totally worth it.

        And the ammo’s free and plentiful!
