I tried such things many years ago. It doesn't work well for handheld slingshots. You lose a lot of energy due to the added mass and friction. In the end there may be a small speed advantage for TINY...

The silver stuff is OK. But of I want compact bands, I use gold (in fact if there was a thicker type I'd use that). If I want max performance with smaller ammo, I'd use black. Silver isn't as fast as...

Ah, the good old lead launcher. I still think this is one of the best hammer grip frames you can build from a single piece of plywood. The cedar scales look great, and I can almost SMELL the...

Yes indeed, blowguns are only exempt from German gun law if the muscle energy in not "stored".

I did make a rubber powered blowgun from the bow gadget "Airowgun" eight years ago though. Note that...

Of course the rust makes a ball much less slippery too.

Nice! I also vary the basic Rambone shape all the time. As a mass market product, the Rambone must fit at least 90% of the customer's hands, so it has to be a compromise. I feel that I hit that goal...

For my taste the groove is too close to the top of the fork arm. The rubber always moves up a bit when you draw out, but snaps back after the shot. When the attachment sits too high, it creeps over...
