Knex Sling-Shot



This is an extremely powerful knex sling shot that goes so far I cant quite measure how far it goes, but i'm sure it goes more than 100 ft. The accuracy is decent, but don't expect to nail a target 75 ft. away. Have fun with it.

    Dude I don't know where you're from but 100 ft isn't extremely powerful. Snipers get up to 500 ft, good rifles get like 200, bad get like 50, and pistols get like 50. 100 ft is basically just an average rifle. And exotic pieces? Really?
