Banded up a variety of shooters for Halloween! Our community sponsors a number of "Trunk or Treat" events, any my family will go to one in our hospital parking lot. Kids dress up and visit participating car trunks for treats. Games are encouraged, so kids at our car will have a chance to shoot at targets hung in the trunk - probably aluminum pie tins.

Office bands work out about right. A #64 band cut in half results in 7 inches of rubber before attaching a pouch or slingshot - about 6 plus inches tie to tie. Ammo under consideration includes mini-marshmallows (126 fps), .12 gram Airsoft BBs (154 fps) and Chickpeas (155 fps). All measurements taken at about 30 inches of draw. I'm leaning toward the chickpeas. They are easier to hold in the pouch than the BBs, and less mess than marshmallows.

Trick or treat!

Have you tried using gummy bears as ammo?

Gummy bears work.

But I think hard candy works better.
Hahaha I bet it hurts a lot more too!
It sure does ... only yesterday I watched Jörg's attempt at weaponizing candy where he shot himself in the finger because he licked a piece of candy before shooting and it stuck to the pouch :)
