    I have an idea for a folding sling shot in mind. The ultamate goal would be for it to eather fit,or attach to the top of a walking stick. I was thinking a steel folding fork. Using a spring ball detent to lock them in pisition. As soon as I get some decent sketches I will post them.

    Although it isn't a folding design, you could experiment with a removable fork that can quickly be installed atop your walking stick. You should look at the work of Schultz, he has become a real genius of the removable fork design.

    Thx my friend ;)

    I use 2 Methods and i think you can make it very Simple.
    Drill a hole through the Fork and the Handle and cut in a Thread.
    So you can attached your Fork with a Screw but you have to take a thick Screw,
    and you need a Screw key.
    Alternatively, you could also filing the Handle a bit so that it did hold the Fork,
    so you dont need a Srew key.
    Or you use it as Slingbow and take a Wingnut as Arrowrest.
    On this Way you can attached it very fast with your hand and maybe you can carry an Arrow in your walking stick with you ;)

    I'm looking forward to see as the Walking stick will look like :D

    I recently made a stalking stick shooter.

    Instead of trying to make a folding 'Y' frame or a detachable fork, I decided to use deer antler for the handle of the walking stick and utilise the natural 'Y' shape to act as my catapult fork. I used a paracord "bunny ear" type loop system and then the bands attach to that using leather wrap around spacers to prevent excess friction wearing the bands. I found this to be the best way as it is a permanent fixture of the walking stick and the bands can be removed if required.
