    I just saw this at the slinging.org forum. Simply some flour inside balloons, pretty cool though. They mentioned they use this in LARP or re-enactment.

    OR use sand instead of flour if you want bigger mass:

    Also an alternative, someone in the thread there mentioned using sock balls. Rolled up socks with some simple rubber bands around them.

    I will definitely try this:)

    How about other ideas for non lethal and harmless projectiles? What do you use?

    Silver foil rolled balls

    Fast initial speed rapid deceleration.


    I need to add that a powerful cat close up after the foil has hit a solid object a few times can still knock things over and pierce cardboard.

    I bought a big bag of cylinder shaped earplugs and cut them in half for my kids to shoot at an indoor target I set up for them. They make a real THWACK! when they hit cardboard, but don't even dent it.

    If you can get them second hand they will stick to walls. (Just kidding).
