Watch: Shooting Pub Darts With Slingshot and Crossbows
Russ Chastain 02.28.18
The crazy slingshot-loving German is back, and he’s up to his old tricks. Doing weird stuff with slingshots, that is! And this time he’s stumbled onto something pretty sweet.
Take a dart — you know, like the ones used in pub games — and throw it sideways, and it aligns itself during flight, because the tip is so much heavier than the vanes in the rear. So why not do the same with a slingshot?
It works pretty well, burying the tips deep in solid wood from 15 meters. But is he satisfied? Nah.
So, he built a crossbow for shooting darts! With a red dot scope, of course. And it works pretty slick, too.
Is he satisfied? Of course not! So he conjures up a repeating crossbow to fling darts.
Enjoy, my projectile-loving friends.
