    Hello,<br><br>First off I have been watching Mr. Joerg for quite a while, Mainly because I like to learn as much as i can from his experience. Round here there's not too many people that know alot about slingshots because their main answer is to use the shotgun. No doubt the shotgun is effective, but i would like to have more options available. But, I digress. <br><br>I am the guy who wants to defend and care for his family in what ever way he can no matter what comes. I believe that an economic collapse will happen sometime within the near future at least in america, and when that happens I want to make sure i have the abilities and tools necessary to ensure my families survival. I have been training for this purpose for about 18 years. When i started, I didn't know exactly the reason i was training, I just knew that it made me feel better about the world and my place in it. My belief is that the topic of survival is much broader than most people realize. Survival to me is anything that a person does to to ensure he/she continues to function. Nothing more, nothing less. <br><br>The biggest thing to me is to learn everything that I can while I can. If i can help someone else's learning while in this pursuit, then that makes me happy. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br>

    I understand you.<br>Perhaps the shotgun is good, but it will entice zombies ( look at "Walking Dead").<br>You could use the slingshot as a silent and a sneak weapon.
