The Launcher Is Ready!

The launcher is now available as a reward!

This puppy is a cross between a slingshot and a crossbow, and can launch almost anything that's about the size of a tennis ball.

Other features include:

  • A stop that keeps the ammo in place until it is launched.
  • Safety bolt that can be set to engage upon cocking.
  • Adjustable length frame to allow for adjustment of launcher power.
  • Interchangeable parts that allow for the attachment of a butt stock.
  • A sturdy cup made out of recycled bicycle tire.
DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT A TOY.  IT IS NOT MEANT FOR CHILDREN.
