A slingshot or catapult (UK), ging (primarily Australian and New Zealand), shanghai (Australian),Gulel (India), kettie (South Africa), bean shooter, or flip or tirador (primarily Tagalog), is normally a small hand-powered projectile weapon. The classic form consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the off hand, with two natural-rubber strips attached to the uprights. The other ends of the strips lead back to a pocket that holds the projectile.
Early, slingshots were a "do-it-yourself" item, typically made from a forked branch to form the "Y" shaped handle, with rubber strips sliced from items as inner tubes or other sources of good vulcanized rubber and firing suitably sized stones.
While early slingshots were most associated with young vandals, they were also capable hunting arms in the hands of a skilled user. Firing projectiles, such as lead musket balls, buckshot, steel ball bearings, air gun pellets, or small nails, slingshot was capable of taking game such as pheasant, rabbit, and dove. Placing multiple balls in the pouch produces a shotgun effect, such as firing a dozen BBs at a time for hunting small birds. With the addition of a suitable rest, the slingshot can also be used to fire arrows, allowing the hunting of medium-sized game at short ranges.
The 1940s also saw the creation of the National Slingshot Association, headquartered in San Marino, California, which organised slingshot clubs and competitions nationwide.
The middle 1950s saw two major innovations in slingshot manufacture, typified by the Wrist-Rocket Company. It was made from bent aluminium alloy rods that formed not only the handle and fork, but also a brace that extended backwards over the wrist, and provided support on the forearm to counter the torque of the bands. Slingshots are also occasionally used in angling to disperse bait into the water over a wide area, so that multiple fish are attracted near the angler's fishing rod.
Metal Alloy Body Frosted Paint - The metal alloy body makes the slingshot more textured. The metal base can make the shooting process more stable. The probability of an accurate hit is greatly increased. Professional shooters will tell you that's true. The abrasive spray paint increases friction between the slingshot and the palm.
For Human Body Mechanics with Foldable Wrist Support - In accordance with the mechanical design of the human body, every Newton Force will be in effective use during the shooting process. Further shooting distance is due to the rationality of the design.
Magnetic Storage Ammo Design - It's a quick - replenishing design.During the rapid movement of the target, how can you miss the best time to shoot and slowly supplement the ammunition?
Flashlight Holder Design - is removable. Suitable for about 2.5cm diameter.
