    Ever wanted a factory made brand new Barnett pro Diablo (clone from china) wrist braced <br>sling shot? But you can't have one because the nanny country you live in ie, australia<br>won't let you have one?...Well the redneckozzie has been doing some surfing on ebay<br>and i found a 6 piece (with sight and wrist brace) put together yourself (in 5min) version of the above named<br>sling shot.... But how does one pass through customs if wrist braced sling shots are prohibited in your<br>country i hear you ask?...Well the key here is that the sling shot comes in 6 pieces , and then the seller sends<br>the parts in seperate parcels, and in approx 2 weeks you will be putting yours together and singing<br>"BOO YEAH" like i was today when it arrived earlier.... If you are interested in one, PM me and i will point <br>you in the right direction so to speak, they are $30.00 US plus about $12 postage depending on where <br>you live.... regards from the redneck..

    Mind you that this is probably still illegal where you live. It would be here in Germany. <br><br>Making a braced wooden slingshot isn't all that complicated, by the way.

    <div>I grew up shooting wrist braced slingshots and only recently discovered the world of traditional slingshots. A traditional fork with flat bands is more accurate, more satisfying, and more powerful than a wrist braced with tubes. I'll never go back. I wish I had known better 20 years ago...</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">

    No offense, but I have never seen a commercial slingshot that did not look like utter crap, whether wrist braced or not. Just look at those those weird, gawky high metal rod "antlers" ...

    You#re right, I had the very largest manufacturers in mind .... Barnett and Trumark especially.
