Default Built a backup weapon

I just finished building a backup weapon/survival weapon. Slingshot bow. To my surprise, it shoots an arrow and steel shots very good. You can see in the photos the compound bow whisker biscuit installed. It flips up or down according to what you want to shoot.
I saw this on the FF and thought it was a good idea, so, I built one. Been practicing and getting pretty good with it.
I bought both off eaby, plus found some steel ball bearings (1000).
If you build one, be sure to get a sling shot with a frame like the one in the picture. Some frames will not hold the whisker biscuit correctly.
So, in a pinch, and no ammo, this is a handy weapon.

Interesting I have an old Wrist Rocket that need reworked.

“Somebody has to speak for these people. Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this—they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people...better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.” Mal Reynolds Serenity/Firefly

Going to hunt anything with it? You should post a video of it in action.
