That 17yo should thank God the girl's brother wasn't using a shepherd's sling.
Seems those ''Wrist Rockets'' are VERY popular in Asia. Still available here, and pretty cheap too.One of the preferred weapons used by rioters on Okinawa in 1970 was the Wrist-Rocket slingshot and steel ball bearings. Could actually shatter a face shield.
And, You're already armed. Tung out of a Boot or shoe, shoe lases and good to go. Just need a little practice. good launch will make a wizzing noise.You fight with what you got. Great job big brother, way to keep your head.
And funny someone mentioned shepherd slings. I my house, we practice with all kinds of fun weapons, for lack of a better word. Besides the normal guns and bows, throwing knives, tomahawks, blowguns (a particular favorite of my younger right now), sling shots, and yes, even shepherd slings. Tell you what, you want a good time, grab one of those and start practicing.

Yes, those were the good old days. Had company commander complain one time that the only difference between a Green Beret operational detachment and a Boy Scout troop was the Boy Scout troop had adult supervision.In 1980-something, I bought my fixed frame wrist-rocket and then they immediately came out with folding ones. My dad and his green beret buddies all went out and bought the folding ones. Then they got serious with them. They bought higher strength tubing, cut it even shorter than factory, then tested out the best "ammo." One guy claimed that small glass marbles were the best because once shot they would shatter and there wouldn't be any evidence left.
and to this day my non-folding wrist-rocket sits in the gun cabinet, in an old Crown Royal bag with about 200 "rounds" of everything from marbles, steel ball-bearings, and rocks I thought would be good.
