    They can - if fired from a powerful slingshot. <br><br>Marbles are often used as alternative slingshot ammo. In this regard, The Slingshot Channel tests two very common myths:<br><br>- Can marbles penetrate flesh?<br>- Will marbles shatter when they hit a hard surface?<br><br>These myths are checked out, using ballistic gelatin and a solid wall. See the harmless looking glass balls tearing the gelatin into shreds, and see how they chip stone shards from a massive rock...<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/JVdq1Z5cSvA" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>The message is clear: Marbles are about as dangerous as steel balls when fired from a powerful slingshot. <br><br>A "The Slingshot Channel" production

    It' s amazing how solid are the marbles. I went to a toy shop to by some but they don' t sell them anymore. I think i am gonna have to steel them from my nephew.

    I get marbels for 1 dollar in bags of 50, but id much rather have a lead mould to cast my own ammo because i dont find the marble heavy enough

    i use marbles (they only shatter if they hit each other)<br>the colored ones are very useful because you can see them in between the leaves

    I love this video.<br>I use marbles too.<br>I get marbles bags of 300 for 2,5 dollars; not bad marbles but not better. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>We pay high for steel balls here; so, marbles is a good choice.

    i use marbles i have killed squirrels crows dove and a rabbit head shots are unnecessary they knock the wind out of crows and squirrels i hit rabbit in the neck it died instantly of course after it had a seizure i get them at the dollar store 100 for a dollar that is much cheaper than steel but steel balls are still better
