some (more)questions about slingshots
some years ago i got a slingshot as a souvenir from an unforgetable time with aborigines in northwestern australia. the rubber tubes were old and worn-out and as i had no replacements available(slingshots are forbidden in SOME australian states)it ended up in my pack and got forgotten. over the last couple of months while bushwalking in new zealand i had a lot of opportunuties to get close enough to small game which would have made a nice meal if i would had something to catch it... .
so i'm planning to get this slingshot ready again(i got a replacement rubber whilst in new zealand). problem is: lots of articles how to make one- but i cannot find anything about how you aim with them... .
also: what kind of rubber would be good apart from factory-made ones(as you cannot buy them eveywhere) and how can you extend their lifespan? and what would be the maximun effective range for slingshots?
thanks for infos!
