So you have a gun and that makes you feel safe and prepared for a SHTF scenario? I have a questions, what will you do if your gun malfunctions or the bullets run out?
Personally, from a prepper and survivalist point of view, I think it is important to consider over weapons you can use for self-defence and hunting and most importantly, weapons you can easily make and replace yourself with minimum tools. I have done posts before about how to make bows: How To Make A 60 lb PVC Bow For Less Than $10 and How To Make A $3 Bamboo Longbow (No tools required!) but this is the first post about making a survival slingshot.
In my opinion, slingshots are often overlooked as a weapon for hunting or for self-defence and I believe this is a mistake. They are easy to make, they can easily be powerful enough to kill birds and small game AND you’ll never run out of ammunition.
The slingshot in this video is made from a broomstick, some duct-tape, a bit of leather and some condoms (quite a few!). The end result is a very powerful slingshot that could be used for hunting or protection. If you could find a strong Y branch from a tree, you could cut down on the need for the broomstick and the duct-tape.
