When I was a kid, I used to spend hours looking for that perfect Y shaped branch to make a homemade slingshot. A stick, two rubber bands and a patch of leather and I thought I had the perfect weapon. Little did I realize back then how under powered my little homemade slingshot actually was.
Today however with a little ingenuity, some PVC and some high power slingshot bands you can make a homemade slingshot that can do some real damage. Slingshots are light weight and are ideal for hunting especially when you have to keep the noise level down, so they make a great addition for your bug out bag. If you have some extra PVC laying around take a look at this excellent video to learn how you can make your own inexpensive PVC slingshot.
