    I've been inspired by seeing Jörg's new bolt for the Stink Master 2000 to create a repeating pump action pistol slingshot. So it would effectively be a mix between the Stink Master 2000 and the Nerd Revenge 2000 (the Nerd Master 2000?). I was thinking it would have a stationary bolt-chamber and a trigger would release the shoot.<br><br>Thought I'd run it by the forum before I get started. So any ideas/comments?<br><br>Oh it would also be similar to Jörg's Pump Action Crossbow but it would fire bolts.

    Bob: Souns awesome! I got a very short version of Joergs Pump-crossbow half-finished, but didnt think about bolt-shooting options...

    although i am new to sling shots and sling bows, i am a journeyman of tinkering ... got something on my workbench that is very cool!! proof of concept and basic operations are done just working on the final touches and getting the correct bands... i need to get 60lbs of pull in 36 inches ... any suggestions on bands?? i have been using some workout bands for now but was thinking of speargun rubber for the final application

    @ironworker--i don't know the best way to figure an answer for tubes, but the theraband calculator works really well in that range. Pseodo-tapers might be the answer. Check xxxxRuthie's posts for the phrase bunny ears.

    That sounds like a great concept Bruntbob.
    Those pistol crossbow bolts are very inexpensive and it would be sweet to figure out a magazine/pump gun for those.
    Whatever the ammo, this will be a blast to shoot.
