    Hello,

    Here are some impact studies using the sling and pitting it against some 2mm-3mm metal! The ammunition are merely average and imperfect rocks - and still managed to pierce metal! Imagine the amount of damage with metal steel balls!

    Thanks,

    Thanks Ach, slinger and failure! @Achso, slingshots are extremely illegal over here and I'm not going to risk making or using one! However, I still love them but am restricted to watching videos on the internet and reading about them on here!
