This bad boy decided it was a good idea to put holes all over the yard... he was mistaken.

Slingshot used is my TubeMaster Sniper/ Scorpion Hybrid sporting a NightStalker attachment. 2040 tubes shooting .50 lead penetrated the armored creature like a hot knife through butter. I've tested this setup in the past and it shoots a .41 cal lead ball at over 260 fps and a .50 cal at around 220 fps.... a light but lengthy draw makes for a comfortable, accurate and deadly combo.

Well, .50 lead is about 170 grains, or a bit more. At 220 fps, that is yielding in excess of 18 foot pounds of energy. No wonder that smoked him!

That is a very nice rig, Bill.

Hey, thanks Guys!

I've eaten an armadillo in the past... it's kind of like a combination between chicken and pork... and it was fairly easy to prepare.

BUT after I did all that I found out that some armadillos carry a form of leprosy... so I usually just leave them alone to do their own thing.

so much for its armor of protection. on the silly side- id be tempted to let it roll up into a ball, then put in the pouch of a water balloon slingshot and send it off.
