I'd use one if I could hit the side of a barn door.

My childhood mentor always had one in the inside pocket of his jacket.

I used to take game with a catapult some years back, but not anymore.  I still love to shoot and make them although its cans that i draw a bead on these days. They're great fun, takes you back to being a kid.

Tidy catapults them  I use the rubber off industrial marigold gloves that we use at work on the shot blaster. They are some nice bands, best of all they're free gratis and for nowt.

The best square elastic i ever used was the 1/8" the more common 1/4"was ok but have you seen the price of it now
