Machete Slingshot

Joerg Sprave is the man when it comes to slingshots.

Gotta love when guys actually respond to ridiculous YouTube challenges.  I think I might personally challenge him to create a slingshot that shoots snakes full of bees.

He should shoot dogs… or bees… or dogs with bees in their mouths and when they bark they shoot bees at you!

Maybe “launch” would be a more appropriate word there than “shoot.”

Did you see his video of the crossbow slighshot with the scope on it? Pretty impressive performance in the ballistics gel on these things…

Yea, in the video he said it came back at his arm and cut him… sounds like he got lucky!

To me, it was implied it was worse than that, just by the way he said he was lucky he was wearing his face mask. I think it may have flown up, perhaps nicked the mask and came down on his arm.

When machete slingshots are outlawed only outlaws will have machete slingshots.

Compact model for home defense?

That ought to be pretty easy with a throwing knife.

I couldn’t get past the quote “Why is it so long…the reason is, otherwise the rubber could not accelarate it enough”.
I often wonder that same thing. The only thing that I could think of was the overly used phrase “that’s what she said”.

Dogs with bees…. that would be great and all but maybe something more practical. And as long as this guy is doing really dangerous stuff… I’ve always wanted to see an arrow with a shotgun shell for an arrowhead and the shell fires on impact. It’s the only defense against “bear cavalry” :)

Well, dogs with bees in their mouths isn’t supposed to be practical. In case anyone didn’t get it, it’s from an old episode of “The Simpsons.” I found the audio at the link below.
