|Pocket Shot type Catapult / Slingshot|
I finally got around to acquiring a Pocket Shot type slingshot. These these things have been floating around of social media for a while now, if you haven't seen or heard of them before here's a quick video of what they're all about:
I've been playing around with it now for about a week and it is wicked fun, very powerful and fairly accurate for what it is. My new favourite thing to do is use it to fire tree seeds all around the local trails, the kids get to have a blast and also help the trees around here to disperse their seed, Win/Win!
They also do an attachment called a "Whisker Biscuit" which allows these things to fire actual arrows! I think I'll give that one a miss for the time being, I'm in no hurry to maim things with it for me it was more of a toy to enjoy with the kids than a survival tool/weapon. There are far worse ways to spend an afternoon than playing with one of these things, if you have been thinking about getting one I'd say they are worth it, and if you get one to fire tree seeds around the place I will be incredibly pleased with myself!
