This Slingshot is the real deal. It’s just like the wooden slingshots you made as a kid, but with an added touch of grown-up craftsmanship. Each unique slingshot is handmade from forked tree branches, carefully stained with a walnut finish, twined in hemp, and outfitted with a leather projectile pouch attached with black latex tubing. Perfect size for hiking and camping, yet powerful enough for slingshot hunting, the this slingshot is a necessary companion for your next outdoor adventure.
Details: Because each slingshot is one of a kind, dimensions vary. Height will fall between 8”–10", width between 3”–5". Slingshots are not toys. For ages 5 and up. Adult supervision required. Always wear eye protection (not included). Inspect for any signs of wear, brittleness, or breakage before each shot. Use caution as shots may ricochet. Please read the safety guidelines and disclaimer before purchasing.
Always wear eye protections. You can get eye protection from from any hardware store.
Know your target and what's behind it.
Make sure you have an adequate backstop for your target. Especially one that can absorb the projectiles energy enough to render it harmless on the ricochet.
Do not shoot at hard surfaces or at the surface of water. Slingshot ammo may bounce off or ricochet and hit someone or something you had not intended to hit.
Never shoot at a 90 degree angle towards your target and backstop.
Always shoot at an angle to your target so that the ricochet will not bounce back at you. Inspect latex tubing before each shot for any signs of wear, brittleness or breakage. Do not shoot if latex tubing is worn or damaged in any way. Replace damaged or worn latex tubing immediately. You can order a replacement slingshot bands from me or many other retailers.
Give the forks a good hard squeeze to check and see if they are cracked or too weak to use.
Slingshots will last longer if stored in a cool dry place. Latex left in direct sunlight will dry and crack more quickly. Tree branches left in wet dark spaces can mold.
