    every British kid of my generation grew up with a slingshot(we call them catapults) hanging out of their back pockets.
    I have several and I have a couple set up as slingbows so I can fire short arrows from them, havent tried them yet as hunting with bows is illegal over here.

    I really like .25 inch steelies (ball bearings) for slingshot ammo but hated the price at Wally World and other sporting goods shops until I found them on sale at OnLine Metals, where I can get a bag of 250 balls for $2.58. https://www.onlinemetals.com/merchan...21&top_cat=197 They also have other sizes and other metals. Just an FYI.

    Can you get a bowfishing rig that will work with a slingshot? I have one of the old wrist rockets and would like to try fishing with one

    Swift, silent & deadly kids vs rodents & varmints.

    a few wrist rockets, ball bearings and marbles and athletic stretch tubing for replacements should be in everyone's prep inventory .... if nothing else arm the kids for rodent duty ....

    Slingshots can be just as accurate as a hand gun in the right hands and with a little practice here's a shot on a carpenter bee

    Used a typical old fashioned tree fork sling shot with inter-tube "stretchers" and scrap leather rock holders back when I was a kid. Most of us were middling and a few were really good. Best ammo for me was a smooth rock about 3/4 inch. Consistency is ammo was the key to being good. Spent more time hunting for ammo than shooting when were having a "shoot out" arranged by the adults to keep us out of mischief.
    The new ones seem they would be deadly for targets larger than squirrels and rabbits, that plus certain birds were our permitted targets along with tin cans and bottles.
