    Super stoked to get back into the sport of slingshots! I was getting into it back in high school and haven’t used one since. I’m now married and a dad with kids and decided it was finally time I got me another one. Just ordered a Scout XT. Anyways, cheers to all and Happy Thanksgiving!

    I'm have an opportunity to hunt with my slingshot soon, and I regularly use and practice with .8 mm bands and .5 inch steel ball bearings. It definitely hits hard but I'm concerned with potentially wounding the animal rather than dispatching it. How do you determine if your set up is lethal...
