What to do when it's a rainy day and you have some spare parts?  Make a slingshot rifle, of course.

Used an old lamp post, a junk QB stock and some random bits and such and hobbled this together.  Still need to shave off some stock to get more trigger, that or attach an extension... but it shoots and it shoots well!  Happy with it.

Interesting.

What is line of sight for aiming? Can't quite figure it out from the pic.

Just look over top the pouch and place the target in the forks either lower or higher depending on distance.

What are you using for ammo? I've been wanting of building something similar but have been trying to figure a way to keep the catapult inside the tube
