In my opinion; homemade. Surgical tubing, a bit of leather, and some round bar.

That ol' boy's got the right idea, using flat bands instead of tubing. From my reading, there is a form of tapered band that provides more projectile speed, but I'm guessin' this feller don't need it.

If there's a dive shop around, they might have speargun power band tubing. It comes in several sizes (power!) and has a hollow core. Have fun!

I am going to make one with some left over band material, great idea!

I order mine from www.makospearguns.com the pole spear material might be the best for this.

Critters? As in "pets" like a cat on the table, or such?
Because I disciplined my cat to stay off the counter and table with a blow gun and blunt tipped darts.



Daisy makes a good sling shot for under $10
