I went out to eat with my wife and I put on a jacket I haven’t worn in a while and I had almost an entire box of Hornady Critical Duty .45 rounds I was happy as those are around $1.25-$1.50 per round.

How’s that for currency?

It may well be currency one day if the grid goes down or there is a zombie appocalypse, or whatever.

It’ll be more precious than gold, especially if you can’t get it. We will have to resort to slingshots with steel balls.

I was recently telling my wife that I am going to get a slingshot and start training with it.

Oh, what will the neighbors think of you then?! “I heard that Calvin is strange; I heard that he has lost his mind.” Watch out, you may be red flagged because to your change in routine. smh. lol.

:joy:They already think I am strange, but they know that I am the guy that checks the perimeter at night, to make sure nothing is out of place or suspicious looking. :male_detective:t6:

Hmmm, I’ll bet you have a Tin Foil hat, don’t you? LOL!

I hear you; I tend to practice a little vigilance as well. It’s just my nature or evolved sense of awareness that I practice doing it. Hopefully, my wife will never be forced to understand it.

I already used it as currency during the pandemic.

A couple of guys doing some electrical work saw my reloading equipment. They wanted to know if I would sell some 9mm. Of course I can’t sell the ammo that I made, but I used some of my store bought stash to pay for the job at an exchange rate of 50 cents/round. At that time, 9mm was getting close to $1/round. Good deal all around.

I haven’t heard you say nothing about it. I don’t know nothing about nothing. :zipper_mouth_face:

There are a large number of writers who dabble in Apocalyptic Fiction or Scripting scenarios who agree on bullets as currency :heavy_dollar_sign::dollar:.

There are some high-end slingshots that are no joke. You still have to practice and learn how to use it, sure, but it’s pretty scary how much force you can get from a strong sling with an arm brace. I think you could take down Goliath pretty reliably, or at least make him reconsider his life choices.

I’ve got a friend who has a high performance sling shot. At short range and " having the ability to initiate". I could see a use for it.

Oh no you didn’t say, “arm brace.” You do know in some states having an arm brace on a slingshot is illegal. Be sure, lol, to check your states’ laws on slingshot types. lol. seriously.

I have a friend who had to explain to TSA why he had a .357 magnum round in his pants pocket

Lucky! Some states (looking at New York) would have pressed charges.

Used to call them Wrist Rockets, made with surgical tubing if I remember right.

Yes, I believe that’s correct.
Less seriously, if a slingshot has an armbrace, ATF considers it an ‘assault rifle.’
