Slingshots depend on strong elastic materials, typically vulcanized natural rubber or the equivalent, and thus date no earlier than the invention of vulcanized rubber by Charles Goodyear in 1839 (patented in 1844). ... The Wham-O company, founded in 1948, was named after their first product, the Wham-O slingshot.  A slingshot or catapult, ging (primarily Australian and New Zealand), shanghai (Australian),Gulel (India), kettie (South Africa), bean shooter, or flip or tirador (primarily Tagalog), is normally a small hand-powered projectile weapon. The classic form consists of a Y-shaped frame held in the off hand, or non-dominant hand, with two natural rubber strips attached to the uprights. The other ends of the strips lead back to a pocket that holds the projectile. The dominant hand grasps the pocket and draws it back to the desired extent to provide power for the projectile - up to a full span of the arm with sufficiently long bands.

Question: could I launch a flaming a bag of poo?

Answer: You could, but accuracy would probably be pretty crappy. Then again, accuracy may be excellent. It's sort of a crapshoot.
Question: Could you use skittles as ammo with this? I know this sounds bizarre...

Answer: Skittles, gummy bears, dog food, pecans, marbles, smoke bombs...yeah man, if it fits in the pouch, you can launch it. How straight it will fly is entirely another matter...

Answer: I'm sure they would work, but they may curve. If you put them in vertically they might work better. But try it out and see what works! Have fun.

Answer: You could but it won't work great.

Question: What is that little L shaped piece of plastic on top of the handle (at the base of the aluminum bars)??? Is there a purpose for this?

Answer: Yes, it's a sight marker so you can aim better at your target.

Answer: It is a sight.

Answer: It is a very creative piece of engineering. This catapault can be folded [it has a hinge there], and also it has a small lid, and you can put about a dozen small round pellets in there [more or less depending on the size, large ones don't fit]. So when I am running around in the woods chasing off the crows, monkeys o… see more

Question: How well will this shoot 4.5 mm copper BBs?

Answer: Perfectly.

Answer: Not sure. I've had good results with loads about twice that diameter.

Answer: Never used BBs with mine. But it will shoot pine cones and small rocks pretty far...i.e., from my front deck across the golf green!

Answer: Not recommended because they are too light for the band pull!

Question: Will it kill squirrel?

Answer: Probably not, unless you hit it in the head, you will just startle it.

Answer: Yes these aren't meant to be a toy adult supervision is recommended for ages 8 yrs and up.

Answer: You may want to experiment with the slingshot. Reverse the position that you would normally hold the slingshot in and test fire it. You may get your answer there.

Answer: Probably would, but a live trap and relocation might be a better choice. You would have to be a good shot and hit the head, rather than a body shot.

Answer: Yes, if you hit on head with great force, but it no kill moose.

Question: What is the draw weight of it?

Answer: Draw weight presumably implies the weight it can carry and deliver. It does a good job of a marble at terrific speed. However - the leather or plastic breaks up in less than six months and the slingshot is useless.
