    Hi. i am making a bugout bag, and want to put a simple slingshot in it. i'd like it to be small and compact but i also want it to be effective and acurate. any tips would be apreciated. i need to know where to get the bands, and what bands i should use. i was also thinking of hollowing out the handle to put survival equipment in it, like matches or a small pocket knife. i have never made a slingshot before so i need to know the basics of making a slingshot. any plans, tips, or hints would be appreciated (and i don't want to make just a y shaped stick either, i want to know how to make a real slingshot) Thanks <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    Look at JoergS's bullpup bow design.<br>It is not that hard to make.<br>And I think there is a lot of room for improvement performance wise.
