Maybe you love to shoot, and you have mastered handguns, rifles, compound bows, traditional bows, long bows, paint guns and whatever else. Have you ever thought about shooting with a slingshot? They may seem harmless, but even the safest-seeming weapon, including all types weapons, out there can lead to severe injuries and even death.
Although, the video below is not real and was created to help raise money for a movie that Joerg Sprave plans on filming, it is still a scenario that very well could have happened and can send a very important message. The improvised weapon itself might not be the issue here, but shooters should also never discount the ammunition that you are firing and your surroundings.
Regardless of who you are, what you do and how much of an expert you are, ALWAYS put safety FIRST when you’re shooting ANY type of weapon, and be aware of your surroundings.
