    Hi,<br>my grandpa want to have a slingshot for his 82nd birthday.<br>I was really surprised about that.<br><br>And then he told me about the situation in Germany during and after the ww2.<br>Nothing to eat for him and his little sister, his parents were ill.<br>So he made slingshots for hunting ...(everything <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_sad.gif" alt="Sad" longdesc="3"> ) to survive.<br>It is deeply emotional and moving for me to realize that slingshots are the reason that I can be here.<br>Zwillie
