Flexible Ammunition Slingshot
Slingshots have a fairly short history compared with other weapons. They depend on rubber for the propulsion, so they date back no earlier than 1839 (the same year Charles Goodwin invented vulcanized rubber.
By the mid 1800s, the slingshot had been used for vandalism by young kids, but also for hunting.
Mostly a DIY item for it's early history, it is usually made from a tree branch, resembling a "Y" look, and a large band of rubber attached.
Most likely you will be more accurate using lead ball ammo, but it's pretty flexible as you can simply use rocks as well.
