A Smokey Mountain Knife Works catalog that I just received lists an ordinary slingshot and it lists some states where they will not ship it to.

Not sure this is accurate, but it's all I found on the internet:

----------------------

Slingshots, slingshot ammo, and slingshot supplies, cannot be shipped to the following states, counties or cities:

Delaware: Dover & Wilmington
Florida: St. Augustine
Illinois: Evergreen Park
New Jersey
New York: Only wrist-braced slingshots are illegal.
Massachusetts
Minnesota: Duluth
Rhode Island
South Carolina: Charleston
Tennessee: Knoxville & Johnson City
Utah: Salt Lake County
Virginia: Falls Church

------------------------------

If Rip Van Winkle awoke today, he would ask, "Where in the hell did my country go?"

I found out everything is illegal in New Jersey when we visited the kid there in March.
Damn shame.

I grew up in NY.
Every one of us had a wrist rocket as kids.
I think I still have mine somewhere.

Just like fireworks are illegal in NY. Go hang around a nice suburban neighborhood on Long Island on July 4th.

I know a girl in NJ that caught a charge for a slingshot, so it's not like it isn't enforced ever lol.

That said she deserved it.

It should be illegal to live in NJ

I get what you're saying, but I'm pretty sure Rip Van Winkle went to sleep with King George ruling the colonies.

Anyway, a bunch of us had those illegal wrist rockets growing up. Just like BB guns and fireworks. A ban doesn't work on kids either.

If you want surgical tubing, order it from a woodworking catalog. They sell it for use as clamps. That's where I got mine.

Any group that would ban slingshots is just a bunch of philistines.

I took a deep breath in NJ once and a cop wanted to write me a ticket.

Luckily I was able to swallow the evidence and he had to let me go.

If that were the case how would they charge anyone to leave?


Yes, you have to pay to get out of NJ.
Link Posted: 6/23/2017 2:45:49 AM EDT
They're not illegal to own anywhere here as far as I know but a lot of cities don't allow their use in city limits, same with shooting, archery, BB guns, etc.

The whole state of NY, CPW 4th degree if they're a "wrist-brace type slingshot".
I had one "confiscated" by a cop when I was around 13, I hope his kid liked it.
