Slingshot vs. Safety Glasses

Mon, 04/23/2012 - 8:27pm

The Slingshot Channel revisits the safety issues. As most shooters know, safety glasses are mandatory when shooting with slingshots. But can safety glasses protect your eyeball from a broken off fork arm? This has been tested with a styrofoam head and raw eggs that simulate the human eye ball. The results are impressive and quite shocking. Everything has been recorded in super slo mo, using a high speed camera (1200 fps). At the end of the video, a direct hit against the "egg" eye, but protected with sunglasses, has been tested. Watch the devastating results! Never ever shoot at someone with a slingshot, it may end beeing fatal.
