    That was great!

    Yup, a good size stone right between the eyes will wreck your day. "There can be only one!" and I guess he's it; and with plain old rocks no less.

    How many fps does he get out of the tube?
    I went to buy some camouflage pants, but I couldn't find any.

    In my youth (a loooong time ago)---there was this old fellow who during the Great Depression, said pretty much the same thing---the only meat his family ate during that time was harvested by himself or his brother with a sling shot---they had a .22 rifle, but no money to buy ammo!

    I saw Mr. Hussey demonstrate his skill on a couple of occasions at a county fair. He was hilarious to listen to as he made the incredible shots. He became known after appearing on The Tonight Show where he shot a corncob out of Johnny Carson's hand. His last slingshot was serial numbered 15864 and was completed just prior to his death in 1994. The details given here can be found on the web.

    My brother had a sling shot for about a week before my mother decided it was a REALLY bad idea.
    I only got to use it a few times and that's the extent of my slingshot years.
    Rufus truly is a marvel with the sling shot though and the fact that he's kept up his skill for all these years is astounding. Good for him!

    Dang!! He's incredible. He keeps that right hand out front. . . I wonder if he's right-handed or left-handed.

    I beaned a squirrel with a marble out of my wrist-rocket about 12 years ago. Luckiest shot of my life.

    I believe Rufus was left handed.

    Awesome

    I wonder how many shots he is fired. Just think of it on a scale of practice. On one end you have a novice shooter that goes to the range one time a year and on the far other end you have this man. I bet he has reached the millions of reps. That is great work.

    Very impressive. One thing I think that is noteworthy is that this shows the effectiveness of point shooting. Same principles apply as he was not "Aiming" his sling shot and was making precision shots.

    okay, not really... but that guy was amazing.

    Good 'ol Carolina country boy. Quite a shot for sure. Somehow, my homemade ones never shot that well.
