Part two, sling shot

So, since a sling shot is made of surgical tubing, I went out and bought some different sizes of surgical tubing at a medical supply store.

Uses? Maybe you can add to this short list.

Slingshot
Tourniquet
Tiedowns (like bungee cords)

Lastly: I never got around to building one but a speargun! Now we're talking a bit larger game and, possibly a human killer or wounder with a lucky shot.

Another thing I would like to try building a bow and arrow. It would be a bit different than a conventional one. Instead of using the wood or fiberglass as a spring, most of the spring would be in the tubing. Could it work? I believe it could but havent tested it yet. On my bucket list. Tubing alone, very little space in or outside the pack, extremely light weight, use to construct your own weapon.

Go talk amonst yourselves, add this to the discussion maybe. Thoughts? Criticism? Ideas? Laugh at me? Its all good.

never thought of using the sling shot parts for anything other than it's main purpose.

been wanting to play around with PVC bows. I have an old browning cobra compound bow that is way better than what I could make but it would be fun to try to build a bow or a speargun.

Yeah, it would be fun to build a DIY spear/bow.
