    What is the difference between a crossbow and slingshot crossbow, and which is better for outdoor use / hunting?

    a crossbow uses a short piece of flexible material like fibreglass, wood or spring steel, or even horns of some animal, or laminations of some of the beforementioned materials, which is curved and put under tension to build up the energy to shoot the bolt.

    a slingbow or slingshot crossbow utilizes rubber or other stretchy materials to generate the needed energy.

    which one is better for outdoor usage: imho the classical crossbow since the bow is more durable and performs better under various climatic circumstances.

    as for hunting: sorry dude, wrong forum. the only game you may hunt here is wild soda cans.

    In the uk crossbows are illegal for hunting. No debate. Slingshot crossbows: can’t work out from the legislation as catapults are acceptable if all boxes are ticked:
    Ie
    Shooting land permission
    Not a protected species
    No lamping
    Not a protected season
    Not a restricted month for sale of dead animal
    No evidence of unnecessary cruelty etc etc
    No photos on this forum.

    How do you put paracords on bands to allow the one piece trigger to hold the whole band set on tension?
