I decided to check into the legality of slingshots using what internet resources were available (which seem pretty good). As it turns out the only places I cannot carry or shoot a slingshot are:
  • A city park
  • A County park
  • A School

Also banned from each of these are firearms, bows, arrows, airguns and rockets. Also any knife that is not a folder with a blade less than 3.5 inches.

So in my yard, I'm okay (as long as the ammo does not get out of the yard, at least.) Also okay in any of the nearby undeveloped land that is not a park, as far as I can figure.

no wrist braces, plus the usual no public places etc. Since I have naturals and vintage forks don't have to worry much most people look at them as toys...

I looked into the law in ILL in some towns by local law they are legal unless you are a police officer and in others they are considered a concealed weapon if cayered in your pocket I think these are just city ordnances but didn't find anything in the town I live in

In states where wrist braces are illegal. Is that only for metal. Is paracord included. I wanna makkah the brace, or try, with speargun tubing, I wonder if the law refers only to metal braces? Chevas

Yep, my little sweetgum natty usually gets comments like "oh isn't that cute." ;) If they ever saw a 1/2" lead ball come out of it they might change their mind. LOL

The public has to be saved from those scary metal tactical slingshots with the big yellow, sloooow tubes and wrist braces. HAHAHA

Sorry Chivas I have no idea but I would say it would be up to how the judge interepted the law, if it gets to that level your probably screwed anyway, just sayin.

Well here in the imperial, er, I mean empire state, they're legal without a wrist brace, but in my (& all surrounding) municipalies, they're banned outright, though there seems to be little enforcement, which is about the only plus to living in this sh*thole state. If you enjoy something, there's probably a law against it here.

Here in the UK those scary metal slingshots are still classed as toys BTW mine are set up with fast tubes but please don't tell anyone it might scare the herd :naughty:

While applying for a gun permit in Forsyth County N.C. it states that you cannot carry on your person while covered a gun, air gun or SLINGSHOT or it will be considered a concealed weapon.

I have been guilty and I am still guilty of carrying the dreaded forked stick and band.

Deal, but we'll have to ban assault thumbs as a compromise. 90% of the population supports this...
.

its only considered an assault thumb cause most are too busy sitting on thiers. :aahhhh: HELLO !!!
