Pretty interesting and looks like it would be easy to make. Needs a better release though, more like the ones they use for bows. Wonder how fast the projectile is moving?

If you used the 1/4" or 3/8" steel ball bearings you could use it for small game hunting. You could include it in with you 3 favorite rifles as a survival tool.
