    this is the message...

    Keep up the great work son. I've got a suggestion for you to improve your content on channel, You could introduce a monthly series where you take a request, make the weapon and auction it off. You start the auction at the price of total materials you used, more or less it is up to you. I think this would attract you more viewers and the viewers feel they have some "control" of the content. And viewers love merchandise, somehow they make use connected to you. Furthermore, the money you get off the auction could be used to invest in your passion.

    i was wondering what legal stuff would be required to sell weapons.
    i wont sell offensive weapons or large stuff but more like non braced slingshots ect...
    but what would happen if someone got hurt with a weapon that i had sold them???
    or if the slingshot broke and blinded them??????
    i need a disclaimer of something and also say like only use the slingshot with light bands ect.
    also i could just not sell the slingshot with bands and it would be less dangerous?
    please help me....

    I think it would be a good idea to consult with legal advice in your country first. I believe you live in the UK? I would see if you can talk to a lawyer about what you intend to do. For simple counselling like that, it would probably cost very little. Then you could proceed with peace of mind.
    This is an excellent suggestion, and if you ever do begin selling shooters, I know you will do very well!
