    Where to Find free Sling shot ammo?

    No. Thats a trick question. I know where to get it but , I wanted to share some knowledge with the group that you can acquire slingshot ammo for free , But it requires some research , See I work as an aircraft mechanic. and when we have to send a propeller to the overhaul shop we get the internals back , normally customers just throw the stuff away , so my boss and i keep the 3/8ths of an inch ball bearings as slingshot ammo, so If you do some research in your area you may be able to find some propeller repair facilities that would be willing to give you these old worn ball bearings at no cost. a Standard 3 blade propeller usually has about 100 to 200 ball bearings in it . hopefully this tip helped.

    Cool, that would have helped when I was seeing the Colonel's daughter.

    Looking at my store bought ammo it looks to be about 3/8" without putting a mic on it. I'd have to open the blister pack for that.

    Brilliant idea. I'm going to start paying attention to red tagged items to see if I can take useful parts from them.
    The only thing I've brought home was ESD bags and desiccants.

    Great tip. Thanks for the idea. But in a pinch rocks do pretty well.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    As a kid we would walk along the train tracks and pick up taconite pellets. That fell out of the train cars for our sling shots. Separate them by size for better accuracy.
    That which doesn't kill me had better start running.

    Well here is CA we have perfect rocks. Not like those mangled, misshapened rocks you have in Alabama.
