    I made myself a Sheppards sling last fall to pack for grouse because it'e literally just two pieces of cord and some leather and packs up real small and will hurl a much larger rock than a slingshot.
    Unfortunately I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it
    I'm going to the dogs.

    Try hitting the broad side from inside the barn.....

    Small and heavy ammo like ball bearings or lead buckshot works best over marbles or rocks.

    Actually just ordered a pocket shot slingshot for my boy for his birthday next week. Rated at 300 fps.
    yeah, the buckshot or round balls sound like a great idea. Body shots with a marble you sometimes end up chasing em around in the thick stuff

    When I was a kid, we sometimes would find old railway spikes along the railway track and would grind the head off and file on a second point. In the right hands and in the right situation, these could be deadly against small game.

    Chiappa little badger worked better than a slingshot for me. I have taken a grouse with a frisbee golf driver once though. Grouse were plentiful that year.
    The only thing I like as much as trucks, is guns.
