Why are your parents against your plans? Because of the money, or because they don't want you to own a powerful slingshot?

You. should convince your parents that you are mature and responsible enough so they are OK with your hobby. If you can't get to that point, you are out of luck as I don't think anyone here would disrespect your parents. There are liability issues as well.

Sounds like someone broke to me.

Nothing is FREE no more.


Also, shipping to Belgium would be crazy HIGH.

I need another automobile that runs great. Anyone got one they can send me
because my wife won't let me buy one?

You can buy small peices of thera. Or maybe there are some stores near you that sell tubular bands? That would at least get you by.

boy you are having problems last time they didn't want you buying from ebay....starting to sound like they aren't into slingshots...
You were given some ideas last time you posted about this dilema, excercise bands are available at a lot of sporting goods stores, large retail stores, etc. Some people have had success with chains of rubber bands, Drug stores carry therapy bands, etc. there are many alternatives to therabands you just have to look. Trying to sneek something past your parents really isn't a great idea!!

Is it just the internet they will not buy from? As posted above you can get stuff to makes bands in places other thant the internet.

As a parent myself, I try to be a part of any potentially dangerous activity my kids want to try; I'd rather oversee slingshot shooting, bonfires and such rather than first hearing about it on the 6 o'clock news. Slingshots are hard to keep kids away from as any manner of elastic material, like be exercise bands, elastic bands, balloons, etc. can be used. Nevertheless, I'm sorry, but I won't sell or give you stuff that you parents won't want you to have.

I guess the real question is. Do your parents just not want to buy it online? Or do they not want you to have it at all?
