Slingshot Hunting Secrets For Survival Success

SlingShot Hunting

The good ol’ reliable slingshot has gone by many names in its day: “bean shooter”, “flip”, “kattie”, “ging” “wrist rocket” and “hand-catapult” to name a few.

In modern times, the handheld slingshot has become associated with mischief and youth vandalism. But this stealthy projectile-flinger has an extremely wide variety of useful survival applications.

This weapon depends upon strong elastic materials to operate and so it was invented around the same time as vulcanized rubber – which puts the sling in slingshot – and patented in 1844. That makes this tool about 172 years old, but the basic concepts behind the slingshot are actually thousands of years old.

The “Sling” was one of the most widely used projectile weapons used for both hunting and combat since the Stone Age. Slings were mentioned by homer in The Illiad and Troy, used by the Romans, and of course, was the weapon David used to defeat Goliath in the Valley of Elah.

A slingshot is virtually the same thing – just more accurate and simpler to use.

A slingshot makes for a perfect do-it-yourself survival tool, but there are also many advanced modern models available for purchase today.

17 Best Home Fortification Tactics To Keep Criminals At Bay

Home Fortification - Glass On Top Of A Wall - Home Defense

Few human initiatives are as ancient and respectable as home fortification.

We separated ourselves from the animal kingdom by the strength of our wits, and our knack for self-defense. So in order to defend our family from others, we need to become home fortification experts.

Especially if the world we know collapses and desperate people want to take what’s ours.

Now good home fortification doesn’t require a full castle moat and a mangled barbed wire fence ringing your lawn. Creating a secure home can be done by adding up a lot of simple tactics. It all depends on how far you want to take it.

So first you must ask yourself:

  • Do you want a secure house that looks as normal as possible?
  • Or are you trying to remodel the structure you live in to resemble a bunker with maximum defense capabilities?

The bottom line is this: The more difficult your home is to penetrate the more likely a criminal will choose an easier target.

That’s the ultimate goal. Make it an absolute pain-in-the-ass for the enemy, and he’ll move on to easier targets. (a.k.a your neighbors). [Read more…]

In this article, we are going to cover the 35 best survival paracord uses. However, before we deep dive into these 35 paracord uses, you should first learn how to tie a few basic paracord knots:
