The Rooftop Zombie Annihilator Slingshot

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

The Rooftop Zombie Annihilator Slingshot

Sometimes it seems it would make sense to clean out an infested area from a safe rooftop, like our fellow member strm_trpr suggested.

Of course a quite weapon is called for. Problem is that you need a massive amount of power to safely crack a Z skull. Using a slingshot, strong bands and a looong draw is the key to such awesome power. But even in full butterfly mode (both arms fully stretched), there is only so much draw length you can get to with a convetional slingshot.

Halloween is upcoming, and my audience expects a cool Special. So I devised a big (but still portable) slingshot frame that gives you an amazing draw length, at full stability.

Had a day off and made it.

I changed the construction a bit, the stick is now undernath the bands - works better that way.

I get a draw of 370cm = 147 inches. Not bad!

Drawing it out is really easy, you take two steps towards the "fork", load a ball in the pouch, and then you grap the stick and walk backwards. After you have reached the shooting position, you draw out into full butterfly just as normal.

This is absolutely frightening when it comes to power.

Will make the video in time for Halloween!

Chalk up one more for the zombie-slaying mad scientist. When's History going to do a special on you?

You know, I always said that if one were holed up on a rooftop surrounded by zombies, that it'd be good to have a mushroom type boat anchor, a long rope, and some gloves... :lol:

That's it, you and Adlan need to start your own show called TOP NOTCH. Like TOP SHOT only with less gunpowder and more bad ass mother fucker.

Wow. That's, well...big! Impressive at least. I am waiting for the video most anxiously...

Thanks to you, I am in the process of making my own rubber band powered slingshot/crossbow.

needs bigger shoulders though.
Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?
