    i was watching this documentary about the gangs on the iland of timor and they starten talking about what weapons they use to murder each other and something called a "tama ambon" or something like that i couldnt quite make it out but its like a small blade arrow with a hook so its like a harpoon arrow fired from a slingshot and this is that weapon (click to enlarge)<br><a href="http://www.defence.gov.au/opEx/global/opastute/images/gallery/20070314/20070312adf8246638_086.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/th/20070310.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><a href="http://www.defence.gov.au/opEx/global/opastute/images/gallery/20070314/20070312adf8246638_063.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/th/20070311.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><a href="http://www.defence.gov.au/opEx/global/opastute/images/gallery/20070314/20070312adf8246638_062.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/th/20070312.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><a href="http://www.defence.gov.au/opEx/global/opastute/images/gallery/20070314/20070312adf8246638_068.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/th/20070313.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><a href="http://www.defence.gov.au/opEx/global/opastute/images/gallery/20070314/20070312adf8246638_072.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/17/37/23/35/th/20070314.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a> <br>seems much like the arrows joerg made of screws wingnuts and duckttape isnt it? and also i think i kind of get the idea why they would make slingshots illegal now even though there are as far as i know of no reports of an assault with a slingshot in my country<br>also the creepy thing is they make they out of 15 cm nails from the hardware shop brooms for the fully parts and electrical tape to attach it together and interesting fact is that this is not a gang invented weapon its actualy a weapon used for hunting by the original timorese people
