seems like you would want a handle on it,might be difficult to pull back with pressure ?

Wonderful carving. You better wear safety glasses in case it back fires.
I like the way you attached the tubing.

Being an avid shanghai user since graduating from reform school at the age of 8, I was impressed with the carving and the surgical tubing attachment…

However, without a decent handle to hold onto, I’d be missing half a dozen eyes.. and if I gripped it higher, mote than a few fingers and thumbs… let alone looking for missing finger nails.
With that ”sawn-off handle”, here in Australia you’d be arrested for a concealed weapon.

Mine were made out of ”Y” branches, bicycle tubes and shoe tongues (similar to this)...

the yonnies were a pilgrimage to the local quarry… river stones were too smooth to cause damage… coke cans weren’t invented back then.

Now I know where that saying came from. “You better get a handle on it.” And where Ducks front teeth went. :-)

Very cool little tool. I accidentally dove down the rabbit hole of quality sling shots a few years ago. It’s amazing the following there is for the little thing. The biggest thing that I found odd was the way the good shooters held them. Like others here I always held them by the handle. Seems like a lot of guys hold them higher. Seems like it works well. I always worry I’ll hit my fingers tho.
