    I think the inevitable follow up question is:

    How do match grade slingshot projectiles perform on bears or should we stick to bonded projectiles only.

    You are going to absolutely wreck the congeniality factor on this forum if you push the controversy envelope too far! :confused:

    Do you have a prototype Len? Can you post pics?

    No way!! If the wrong people knew you could kill a bear with a slingshot, they will most certainly restrict or ban the sale of all slingshots and ammo.

    Maybe I do, maybe I don't. Not until the patent is approved.

    You betcha,have at it! Just one caveat, restrict ammunition to swedish meatballs,frozen if you wish,for better penetration. That should make it more um sporting,thats right ,sporting.

    Definitely, and I am very excited to see what kind of ammo everyone can come up with that is slingshot propelled to achieve this task, we'll need a reloading room totally dedicated to this venture! I will bring the camera!

    Well then, can you release some ballistic data, or is that restricted too?

    Well, I guess we'll just have to read about it in Sling Magazine. Tell me Len, who's gonna write the article?

    Did I miss something, is Kirby working on something new? An APS slingshot perhaps? :)

    Rem, yes, I read them all. Funniest thing is a lot of them, especially those who made the early responses, felt this was a real issue. :cool:
