Of course it struck my friend directly in his forehead before he could duck, leaving a large mark. So much for a good idea. I remind him of it from time to time.
A light piece of string tied to a throwable weight on one end and the other end of the string tied to your rope will get the job done (without taking out an eye). However, the sling shot would be big fun for other entertainment
