An aerospace engineer from Texas has developed a slingshot so powerful, that it can kill a wild animal. Fitted with two mounting points, the standard Survival Slingshot comes with forty rounds of steel shot. There is even an Archer model, which allows the user to fire arrows from this foldable weapon.

There is a whisker basket mounted on top of the slingshot, which is used to rest arrows and is made up of sysnthetic bristles and a central hole. This whisker basket can be removed so that the user can fire the more traditional ball-bearing-like ammunition.

The slingshot comes with an array of attachments which include a flashlight and a compass. The all-weather device has a waterproof storage area, ready for use in all conditions.

The Archer Complete model, which can shoot arrows, costs $139.95, whereas the standard model with slingshot balls only costs $49.95.

The company explains that the Survival Slingshot is configured for archery and night time hunting. If that doesn’t convince you that this device is not something to be messed with, then maybe the company moto will; “Bring a tool, not a toy”.
