    Have you considered that a stickshot design would be an easier/faster/simpler SHTF solution? I would think it would require fewer materials and less effort.<br><br>Just the shoe, shoelace for the string loop, condoms, and a stick (or even just fired off the hand...)<br><br>Eh?

    While you are correct, it would be easier, faster, and even simpler to make a stick shot, the shooting part of these attributes are not shared by a stick shot design.<br><br>It is easier to shoot a normal y fork when compared to a stick shot... That is probably why he made this... for a more experienced shooter a stick shot would work I suppose, but for some1 that never used one before, a simply y fork would be superior in my opinion.<br><br>I suggest throwing one together if you have the time and inclination... I find they are ... difficult to shoot, to say the least.... to say more... they can be painful if you don't do it right, and in a SHTF scenario, you do not want to injure yourself unnecessarily.<br><br>Personally, I hate stick shooters <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9"><img src="http://r28.imgfast.net/users/2815/14/20/70/smiles/2307125563.gif" border="0" alt="">
