Shooting a 2.2 Lbs Dart With A Slingshot

Dared to by his viewers Joerg Sprave has come up with his most ambitious launcher yet, a handheld rubber-band powered launcher for the Cold Steel hard darts. “Hand-held” is used loosely, as I would more describe the launcher as a catapult. It so hard to load, he had to make a special wood cocking device.

Moral of the story, don’t challenge someone crazier than you to do something crazy with something crazy. The results may just be borderline sane.

    Yeah but will it go through an engine block?
    And where are the rails?

    “dart weighing one kilogram”.

    Eh, why not?

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      That is 15.432 grains of tactical solid steel!

      • iksnilol

        That’s a lot of corn.

    I hypothesize that the guy’s massive arms don’t come from working out or even heavy labour, but just from cocking those massive creations of his.

    • Tassiebush

      Yeah he probably took up powerlifting after his slingshot/catapult/shangeye hobby took off!

  • Kirk Newsted

    Is it wrong that I want this guy to be my next door neighbor? And what about that laugh? Sounds like a cool supervillain.

    • Tassiebush

      He’d be an awesome neighbour and a darn friendly supervillain!

    I was a little worried when the video showed koi fish. I was like “oh no, don’t shoot a fish.”

    • Dan

      I was thinking the same

    “Moral of the story, don’t challenge someone crazier than you to do something crazy with something crazy”

    That’s a lesson many of us learned the hard way.
