Slingshots & Boomerangs
A sling shot, shanghai, flip, bean shooter, wrist rocket, vag badge, or catapult is a small hand-powered projectile weapon. Slingshots have been used as a military weapon, but primarily by guerilla forces due to the primitive resources and technology required to construct one. The classic form consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the off hand, with two rubber strips attached to the uprights. A marksman slingshot is often used for target shooting but is also a fun way to hunt small animals. Using a marksman slingshot is an easy and inexpensive hobby that should be treated with the same respect you’d give any other weapon and proper use will help you hit whatever your target may be. A boomerang is a thrown tool, typically constructed as a flat aerofoil that is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning wooden boomerang is designed to circle back to the thrower. Boomerangs are used as a weapon for hunting purposes, usually by tribes and are also used for sports or for entertainment purposes.
