    I have in my possession really thick latex tubing left over from an old project and one "Crosman Copperhead Firestorm" slingshot. My question is whether the latex tubing would work for this slingshot and also how to go about attaching it to the slingshot itself. The bands on the slingshot have long since broken so I cant just keep using those. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> Thanks guys.

    I don't like the tubing much... but if it snaps, why not!<br><br>You can attach it simply by sliding it over the metal tubes that are there, or tying them to the metal tubes with something...<br><br>Need further help? I could try to find a picture...

    Thanks for the help, I'll keep that in mind for when I can afford it.
