    I used 1/2" conduit. About 4' long. I shoot bamboo skewers. <br><br>Very effective for the lizards I have sometimes in my house. <br><br>Due to the ricochet the slingshot is not safe for this purpose.

    I shot at a wall long time ago, when I was about 12 years of age, and I learned the hard way that it's not a good for your health.<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>I know better now.<br><br>Inside a building or whenever there is a posibility of a ricochet it's not wise to shoot with a slingshot. <br><br>That's why I use the blowgun. No ricochet and I get the job done.

    It's the 'house gecko'. I know they eat all the mosquitos etc. but I don't have insects in my house. I have mosquito screens on all my windows and doors.<br><br>They come inside and go on the food and in my cabinet. And... they leave droppings on the table, sink, fridge etc.<br><br>Once there was one above me close to the light ficture and he dropped one almost in my plate. <br><br>Outside I leave them alone. Don't bother me and I enjoy watching them.
