    Sure - but I want to make some "spy" ammo first. Like a bolt that has a steel head, hollow, with a .22 blank inserted as a tip. The idea is that it blows up on ignition (explosive heads). And one that has a syringe as a head.<br><br>Oh, and two Thera Tubes Silver per side equals a total of three full width Thera Band Gold (1,5 per side). As I said, impossible to cock by hand. <br><br><img src="http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/6999/explosivehead.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Joerg, just wanted to ask, why the long trigger? Is it so hard to pull?

    I shortened the trigger a bit, it is now just long enough for two fingers...<br><br>A normal length trigger would work, but pulling it is kind of hard. Hard enough to cause a movement in the gun hand, decreasing accuracy. <br><br>Slingshot pistols have little recoil (due to the slow energy buildup), so a rock solid grip isn't necessary. Using two fingers for an easier trigger pull makes total sense. <br><br>To reach the same accuracy with a short trigger (index finger operation only), a far more complex trigger/lock would have to be employed. I like the simple way.<br><br>As I said, I may do a video once I have some interesting "spy ammo" for it.

    I'm not an expert on exploding arrowheads, but Jörg, don't you think that you should remove the bullet itself from the rest of the round? In that case, the bullet might fire towards you, or at least towards the direction you're firing.<br><br> I recommend you to remove the bullet itself and replace it with like some type of foam to keep the gunpowder from falling out and at the same time not hurting anyone in the process of firing.<br><br>Take care.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>

    For those that can't get bullets easily, your local hardware store should have "blanks" that are for power nailers for concrete. Very tiny shell and perfect for use as a detonator. I would think you'll need a tip cap with a pin facing in to act as a firing pin to ensure it goes off. I think German has enough unexploded ordinance still lying around in the ground. Wouldn't want to add to it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_pale.gif" alt="pale" longdesc="26"><br>First thought would be a furniture tack epoxied to a penny or similar coin in various countries. Couple dabs of silicone to hold that to the tip of the head. Just a little. Enough to raise it up and still be soft enough to compress to strike the blank. Just thinking out loud. Only half way through my coffee.......<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">
