These are a nice set for a smaller child. they are definately a toy, not a weapon to use for any serious purpose. They are very lightweight, so using it to get the feel of a slingshot, and to do some starter aiming is perfect. I got them hoping myhusband and daughter could use them together, but my husband preferred to purchase a better one to use for demonstrating to her.
We ended up giving the spare one to my grandson, and so now he targets and shoots with Papa and his teenage Aunt.
I would buy these again, for a child, but not for anyone who is really wanting to get good at slingshots.
