One of these days I'm going to teach myself how to aim and really use this slingshot for good. Right now I just play with it. But I would presume with the right ammunition and a good aim, you could kill birds, squirrels, and rabbits. It would come in handy in a crisis or when you need to hunt for your own food. But for right now, it's just a play thing for me.
Comes with two extra bands, so when the first one breaks, you have back up.
The wood is very nicely finished. It's polished and smooth. The 'hammock' area where you would load your rock or other ammunition is a soft piece of leather. Nicely rustic looking.
