Return of the Giant Killer
When David bagged Goliath, the slingshot was a murderous device—now it's coming back as a weapon for sportsmen. By Robert Hertzberg THE man in the bright red shirt strode past the big "No Hunting" sign and knocked on the door of the farmhouse. As the farmer stepped into view, the man said, "May I hunt on your property. . ." "No!" interrupted the farmer. "Can't you read signs?" The would-be hunter reached into his pocket and held up a shiny, fork-shaped object. "... with this weapon?" The farmer stared and then burst into laughter. "Sure, you can hunt all you want on my land with that thing. If you bag an elephant, just leave me half." "That thing" was one of John Milligan's Specials, a seven-ounce aluminum alloy slingshot powered by a pair of gum-rubber bands 11 inches long. Milligan didn't get an elephant because elephants don't run wild in Detroit, but that day he settled for two pheasants and a rabbit. Believe it or not, his total bag for the season was six pheasants, 14 squirrels, 18 rabbits and 4 coons. Could you have done as well with shotgun or rifle?
