What if James Bond had a slingshot?

Slingshot Channel explores different spy slingshots

By  

Over the weekend I saw "Skyfall", the new James Bond film - while the movie moves away from the gimmicky gadgets a lot (sorry, no exploding pens), if they really wanted to get away from the high tech stuff they should give Bond a slingshot.

What kind? Fortunately, our friend Joerg Sprave from the YouTube Slingshot Channel has a bunch of answers. Watch the video to see a bunch of suggestions for spy-type slingshots that can shoot small bolts, arrows with poison in them and stronger ones that can ding holes in old cans of pineapples.

I'm thinking that Sprave would make an excellent Q.
