Around 1964, the American Slingshot Company from Toledo, Ohio sold this interesting slinghsot. The Blackhawk is a true hunting slingshot, with very powerful bands (5/32" x 5/8" !)which are fused into a nut on the fork. It doesn't have a leather pouch, but two moulds in the connected bands, forming a pouch when bands are closed. This way, the Blackhawk can shoot a load of BB shot to down small game, especially birds. With 1/2" steel balls, this slingshot easily penetrates 3/8" plywood from a distance of 40 feet! It takes an adult to shoot this slinghsot, and the recoil can hurt the wrists. But if a shooter is strong enough to master the Blackhawk, he is always able to have a powerful hunting weapon in the pocket.
Note the deep moulds on each side, instead of a pouch
