    I'm a college guy from Michigan. as a kid, i loved my slingshot. now due to the slingshot guy my love for slingshots has been rekindled. oh how i loved launching paint balls, watching them splat against play structures. id use to take broken chunks of flat concrete and load them slightly off center in my slingshot and let them fly. the concrete would become airborne but with a spin giving it enough power to chop down small branches. later on in my life i found out that if i dipped cotton balls in water they became wonderful projectile for launching at people. softer, safer, and less painful then paint balls, the wet cotton balls were good for entertaining and pacifying rowdy children. i began to work with children at a church group, and brought a few of my slingshots i had laying around for a game based on the David and Goliath story and found out that the art of slingshot is missing a generation, along with the art of spitballs, art of rubber band shooting, and most of the wonders of my childhood. so it has become my goal to make sure the before mentioned activities are enjoyed in generations to come.
