    Well, in all these years a few accidents happened, mostly when there is distraction and/or not enough caution. This weekend, I hit my hand while clocking the speed of the recent Zombie Rooftop Slingshot. <br><br>Luckily, it was just a grazing shot and it was not fully accelerated when it hit the hand, but there was a lot of blood and good, honest pain. <br><br>So no shooting this weekend! But we are no pussies here at the Slingshot Channel, and therefore three new slingshots are presented in this video - there still was enough daylight when the "crew" came back from the hospital. <br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/aHAjAUBHJWY" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>Doctor says I can start shooting again in a fortnight.
