    I made two of the PSA (Penetration Slingshot Ammo) that Romanian Scout Team uploaded on YouTube about two months ago. I have "drop-tested" them and throwed them. It seems to work <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><img src="http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/17/50/40/49/pict0010.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Made from arrowtips, string, electrical tape and a rubberband. The one to the right is a bit more pointy so it penetrates easier, while the one to the left is a little heavier = more momentum. I will hopefully be able to test them tomorrow. Cant wait! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>Also, I got a YouTube Channel now, AlfredB666. You can expect some slingshot video soon!<br><br>//Alfred aka Failure

    onnod: Thanks for the tip <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"><br>Tyson: With the tip pointing downwards in the pouch and the string outside pointing up.<br>Lars: Yes I saw that, very clever invention!

    The problem I can see is that it got no heavy tip to stabilise it... Maybe it works anyway, have you tried to actually shoot them?

    <div>I used to shoot my Marksman air gun darts the same way at an old dartboard.<br>99% point stick rate. They should make good hunting ammo. Gonna have to get some and test myself.</div><div class="clear"></div><div class="signature_div">
    <br>Failed perception is when you have a gun, I have a slingshot and you think you are the only one that is armed. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

  10. I have been planning on making some of these for a while!<br>do you reckon that I could make one out of a 1.5cm thick steel rod if I grind it sharp and then cut it at around 3cm long?<br>also what are you using for the back of the projectile? (the kind of flight bit)

    TAOW: I guess it would work, but not as good as real arrowtips (arrowtips are front heavy). And for the "fletching" I use string I "roughed up" to get a bigger surface.<br>Lars: Epoxy, maybe? Or drill a hole only halfway trough?<br>(By the way, nice to hear from you again! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> You have been away for awhile...)

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>i cut a piece of nylon cordage (same as the blue one jörg used in a couple of vids). heat one end with a lighter and pull the strands on the other end apart. paracord would work too. then it looks like the spike/darts ammo for air guns.</span>
