We have used slingshots at our Webelos 1-Parent Overnights at one of our
Milwaukee County Camps. We use safety features much like a BB or
Archery Range. We used beans as "shot" thus it becomes enviromentally
friendly. It is kind of interesting to see how many bean plants are
growing the next spring.
