    Damm Is it ok that I'm chuckling seeing a motorbinke helmet and stand being launched on the floor by a steel ball? Did I hear <strong>20mm</strong> !<br>Sorry to see the glass was damaged but it made a great video.<br>I think it may of hurt a little if the projectile hit you in the cheek.<br>For a clever and talented chap you do some crazy things ........ keep 'em coming.<br><br><br>Have you/would you ever allow the V slingshot to go in to production ?<br>

    yeah, looks really scary.<br>but had 100% expected, that the ball destroys the helmet...really not bad.

    The hole in the window looks like a stamp. That means the bullet was pretty fast when it comes back. Luckily it doesnt hit your glasses. I think it wouldn´t stand that bullet.

    Your dedication and obsession to slingshots has most certainly paid off the broken window, I'm sure. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
