Slingshots are definitely a solid investment. Please understand I’m not knocking the PLASTIC toys manufactured today. We love our nieces and nephews very much, so once in awhile we spoil them with a PLASTIC toy that is highly over priced, and has the life expectancy of zilch. Now take that same money and purchase a slingshot???? Slingshots are an excellent way of teaching, respect, safety, friendly competition, and a great way to teach people how to use both hand tools and electric tools. Let’s say we purchase a G10 slingshots, and after shooting it for a short period of time, decide to quit shooting it. We can at least sell it for a fair price.
