    I finished this a few days ago but didnt have anything to take pics of it with.Well, i started working with it to kill a few hours, without expecting anything special to come out, but it turned out pretty neat and practical.I'll be making another , better one soon.It can be worn and shot as a ring but i prefer wearing it on my thumb for extra power and accuracy.If turned around it acts as a spike, sticking out of your fist, so it can be used for self defence if a really soft skull zombie attacks you.In the pics, im not wearing it on the middle finger because i have a recent pretty deep scratch on it. So, here it is, and sorry for the crappy quality of the pics.<img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01110.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01111.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01112.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01113.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01114.jpg" border="0" alt=""><img src="http://i46.servimg.com/u/f46/17/36/31/86/dsc01115.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    That thing makes me think about building one big one, but you have 4 holes for your fingers and four spikes to the outside. On the top of it there can be a slingshot and the Bottom is also a big spike....<br>Cool Idea!

    Interesting. What kind of wood did you use? Is it strong enough? Looks pretty cool, i like those tiny slingshots.

    it is a type of bush that belongs in the oak family, called quercus coccifera.Its really strong ,<br>( unbreakable), and it doesnt crack or rot for hundreds of years.

    I would like to make something like that in alu but the law here in Belgium sucks. They are in the brass knuckles category.

    That is badass! You could shove the whole thing, bands and all, in your pocket in like 1/2 a second.<br>How well does it shoot? You attach the bands down the middle OTT style?

    i havent tested it with strong rubber yet, i only have some thin black tubular one.It shoots great and is pretty accurate with the 6mm bbs i use.i attach the bands opposite to normal(i fold the rubber in the groove to the side that faces me and tie it down with office rubber and then a piece of string).It doesnt give any handslapps and i dont need to flip it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">
