We have been showing a lot of very specialized slingshots lately, here on The Slingshot Channel. Throwing knives, Assegai spears, steel darts, the likes. So it was time for a more generic launcher - the "Blunderbuss"!
Like the classic firearm original, the weapon is a muzzle loader, beeing very flexible when it comes to ammo. See it shooting wooden blocks, vampire stakes, Zombie skull hole punchers, empty gas torch containers, even plastic and glass bottles.
The device is about 1 meter long, comparable to a walking stick. The draw weight of the considerable rubber bands is about 150 lbs, much like a conventional recurve crossbow. Enough to shoot the 130 gramm gas container at 32 m/s!
Like the ancient original, the Blunderbuss slingshot crossbow can shoot many non lethal and lethal ammo types. This makes it an excellent emergency and recreation device. The tubular rubber lasts a long time, and the weapon is very reliable.
