    Two known facts:

    1. I like weaponizing houesehold items
    2. I do not like witches

    So I though I can make a slingshot crossbow that fires straw brooms. So you can give the witches a taste of their own medicine and fire brooms at them while they play their sick Quidditch game!

    Ammo:

    I think the rice straw will work nicely as fletching.

    I will need a looong, heavy launcher for the 1 kg heavy brooms. I am thinking 3 meters, maybe 100 kg (220 lb) draw weight. That should launch a broom about 60 meters up into the air.

    Ha!! This is a good idea! If you end up with an extra broom, shoot one in this direction, I could use it :D

    It is an interesting point in life where we find ourselves reading reviews on brooms :D
    Especially for use as weapons, not floor cleaners!

    Maybe try a Modern Broom to clean up their act a little better? Oh but Swiffer could really clean their act up!

    I like the slingshot channel more all the time. I don't like witches either , certainly can't wait for this one.
