This is a video specifically for the survivalists amongst my audiene - because if you find yourself in a TEOTWAWKI situation, you will have to hunt down your food as supermarkets will be looted in no time. Of course you can make a slingshot very easily if you have some rubber, but without practice, a slingshot is worthless as a hunting weapon.

A slingshot crossbow is a different issue. It allows you to hit small game from distances between 10 and 30 meters easily, even without any kind of practice.

But how do you make a slingshot crossbow when you are out in the wild, without power tools, without a DIY market for the parts?

Bill Hays (he is a vendor and fellow enthusiast from the slingshotforum) recently brought up the info that a slingshot band does not need a fork, simply an edge to be pulled over - like the end of a 2 by 4 or so. I decided to work on that concept and love it! Thanks Bill.

This video shows how to make a very accurate slingshot crossbow from tree branches and twigs, with nothing but a pocket knife as a tool. So as long as you keep some rubber in your BOB, you can make a very accurate and effective hunting weapon in a couple of hours.

Of course you can use any tree branch for the weapon, but in this video, an old christmas tree is used for the stock/frame of the weapon. This adds a nice touch to this The Slingshot Channel production!

spooning motion :D

anyway very clever way of triggering it, but it sounds weaker then most of you other ones. maybe its just the diastase

also how we going to order bands when the world ends, with your stock pile you can become a wholesaler :lol:

The christmas tree crossbow shot so well that I decided to make a nicer weapon with the same concept.

So I made a side by side double shooter with steel levers, a steel system and a stainless steel "barrel" (16 mm tube).

The "fork" is very narrow as it has to be the same width as the two hooks for the ball+pouch, so the two shots are parallel.

The levers are held down by two rubber strings, quite effective, just like the christmas tree design.

Carved a stock from multiplex, dyed it with ink and oiled it with linseed oil.

This is a great shooter! Feels a bit odd at first to not have a trigger, but I got over that quickly.

thats mad, looks great. it would be cool if you put a third trigger in between the two you already have, to fire both at the same time if you want a kind of buck shot.

My most beautiful natural slingshot?

Unread postAuthor: JoergS » Wed Mar 16, 2011 1:42 pm

Found this frame on a Sunday morning walk through the woods. Good that I always carry a foldable saw with me!

It was a dead tree, already started to wither a bit. But it felt solid.

I did not expect much when I started to work on it, but then I discovered that there was a layer of pink underneath the bark! When I polished the fork, it turned out that the grain is just beautiful. Very dark brown around the knobs, in some places almost white and of course the pink...

I did NOT tint it, this is the natural color. I only used clear poly to protect it and to bring out this "wet" look.

Isn't it amazing that dead wood, when harvested just on time, often has the nicest grain?

A great shooter, banded it up with very light target bands - it is strong enough for serious bands, too.

Easter Special: Egg Launching Monster Slingshot

Unread postAuthor: JoergS » Sun Mar 20, 2011 11:54 am

The western world is getting into Easter mode right now. The stores are in full decoration, the spring is coming with force.

It is time to do an "Easter Special" episode on The Slingshot Channel! We bring to you a slingshot that is made for shooting eggs.

Eggs need a special protective pouch, due to their fragility. The pouch used in the video was made from Kydex, a plastics material that you can form into any shape under heat. Once cooled, it will keep that shape. kydex is hard, and a handslap with the huge egg pouch would be very dangerous. Therefore, the "slingshot on a stick" method, invented by Boyntonstu from out of Florida, is employed.

The stick is over 180 cm long, an enormous draw. The heavy eggs reach tremendous speed (about 165 feet per second). The spectacular impact is shown in super slow motion, recorded at 1200 frames per second.

Here are two shooters many people on the said "No way!".

A completely forkless "T-bar" slingshot, and a setup to butterfly Thera Tube Silver (the thickest and sickest tube made by Hygenic).

The shots are recorded in slow motion (1200 fps).

Enjoy!

The high speed videos of the T bar slingshot are sweet! It clears the fork by like 1 inch! And the second one is cool too, the ball is so close to your arm though! Don't get hurt man... you make awesome stuff! :D
