Default NJ and NY slingshot laws?

I live in NY and I know there is a law that makes them illeage if you have a wrist brace on it but can you go hunting with a slingshot in NY? Also since live only 40 minutes away from NJ are they legal there also?

Slingshots used to be legal in N.J.

I bought my first wrist rocket at the old Pennsauken mart. That was in the 70's though. Might be changed by now.

I bet you could google state laws for each state though.

Contact Flatband on the other slingshot forum. He's in that area.

Three main ones and at least a few others. Different forums have different focuses and not all users are on each forum.

SSF/Slingshot Forum - http://slingshotforum.com/
Rebel Slingshot Forum - http://rebelslingshotforum.freeforums.org/index.php

Trumark has a forum, but I don't think there's been any new posts on it since last spring. Melchior Menzel has a forum for his website "Slingshots of the World" but I didn't see much traffic there last spring when I was joining forums. I hear tell of a Jack's Shed forum in the UK, but haven't registered there at all.

Melchior's site has some good information - http://slingshot-shooting.de/

Nico has good information on hunting projectiles on his blog - http://nicos-resorterablog.blogspot.com/

YouTube has a lot of good videos about how to slingshot. Joerg, Simpleshot/Flippinout, Bill Hays, pfshooter, Charles Morgan, Gamekeeper John, and many others.

It's like a buffet. Try a whole bunch of stuff and take extra helpings of the stuff you end up liking. Just be safe and responsible.

Wrist Brace style slingshots are Illegal in N.Y. State.
Any slingshot is illegal in N.Y. Shi*ty.
A slingshot may not be used in N.Y. State for hunting anything and I personally called the Commisioner of N.Y. D.E.C. to verify that.

Actually, you can own a slingshot anywhere in NY, including New York City. But for NYC, it can't have a wrist brace.
