  5. As far as i know they're completely legal here, slingshots with wrist-braces are sold openly by many armories.

    Yesterday I asked TokSik and he said that arm braces are ilegal in Belgium. And there is a limit to the energy of the draw too!
     
  11. There's no mention of slingshots in the Belgian arms law, as far as i know.

    ik heb het volgende gevonden ivm slingshots:

    Slingers:
    Ingevolge het KB van 30 maart 1983 worden ‘alle katapulten, die een kinetische energie overbrengen die, gemeten op twee meter van de schutter, groter is dan 2.1582 J, bij de verboden wapens gerangschikt. Dit KB is toepasselijk op alle katapulten, behoudens deze die op een projectiel een kinetische energie kunnen overbrengen die, gemeten op twee meter afstand van de schutter, kleiner is dan 2.1582 Joule. (Deze zijn niet aan de wapenwet onderworpen). De minimaal vereiste kinetische energie is zodanig dat het merendeel van de katapulten als verboden wapens worden beschouwd.
    Het begrip katapult omvat niet alleen de eigenlijke katapulten, i.e wapens waarmee projectielen kunnen worden weggeschoten, maar ook de slingers, i.e wapens waarmee projectielen kunnen worden weggeslingerd

    Hier is de link:

    Yes, you can buy catapults in Belgium with an wrist or arm support. But these are not allowed during races in Belgium because it can be shot there so hard, as happened in the past, damage is made ​​to the shooting here.

    And in our competitions is not intended to hardest to shoot.
    It's just meant to hit the target. And 10 meters distance without needing an extra support

    Hi guys and girls,
    To make it short, all catapults with more kinetic energy than 2.1582 J when shot from 2 meters is prohibited in Belgium. Like a lot of "weapons" you can have it but you can' t carry it.

    So you can shoot slingshots in your basement, or in your own garden? That would be acceptable in a way.

    That' s right Joerg!
    I asked a policeman( investigation section), sometime ago but he couldn' t answer. He took one of my slingshots to his colleagues from the balistic. They says it is not allowed to shoot with it on public domain.
    The detective also told me the policemen would "normally" react depends on your behavior when shooting. Shooting at cans on a field will not have the same consequences as shooting at cans near cars and people.
    The policeman' s mood is another "factor" ;)
