The Practical Guide to Man-Powered Bullets

Experiments with Catapults, Musketballs, Stonebows, Blowpipes, Boig Airguns and Bulletbows

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

This book explores in practical detail many of the ways, old and new, in which man can shoot missiles by means of his own force, without the aid of explosives. David slew Goliath with a stone from a sling, but it was a large stone and Man has long been shooting small stones and carefully rounded bullets of clay, glass - and latterly steel and lead - from a variety of weapons without recourse to gunpowder. The bow and arrow has been Man's choice for the last 10,000 years, when modern firearms have been unavailable or unsuitable. There is currently an explosion of interest in making primitive archery equipment. The author has been building bows and shooting flint-tipped arrows since adolescence. But the addiction has led to stronger stuff: to experiments with making and shooting pump-up airguns, stonebows and home-made lead musketballs. Middleton's narrative is lively, humorous and full of exciting information and experimentation. In this quirky and clever book, he invites you to share the thrills of his garden shed experiments with him.
