    Once again I had a thought. Since I'm born, raised, and live in what is known as the Wild West I sould make a Fast draw sling pistol. The barrel part is the same basic as one of Jeorg's slingbow designs. The trigger is steel, the ball and pouch as a steel dropp down lever, and the rest is that multi stuff plywood modled from and old blackpowder Colt .44 . In the pic is one of my old lever actions just for comparison. No bands in the pic, I had to order more. And I do plan on making a leather holster for it. Snapshot_20130428_1.JPG

    To be honest, that looks a bit...

    AWESOME! :D

    Seriously, it looks really cool. You can now have duels with your enemies... :cool: Nice work!

    What are those cuts in the top of the "barrel" for?

    The cuts were my way of giving it low and high power. Sometimes Coyotes out here can be a bit nasty, so I thought with a low power setting it will give them just enough sting to scare them off, and the high power would be the "fun setting".
