Holy internal bleeding Batman!Launching a tennis 220'?

Has any one seen or owned one of these (or something like it)? Because I think that would be cool for nerf war, at least as a novelty.

In my opinion:

1. Since it is already so powerful, modifying it would be no fun.
2. Isn't the point of Nerf to shoot darts, not potatoes, paintballs, or tennis balls?

Bah! Use homemades or nerf guns. Not freakin slingshots.

Yeah, life sucks, but it does guarantee a trip around the sun every 365 days.

You know what? You could cut up 1/2" sections of FBR, put a small weight in each, wrap them up in a tissue paper, and jam that into the tennis ball slot. That could be some major fun rain. But then again, you could do this with just about any good slingshot.

I used to have a sling shot something like that, just not with the ball thing. It was nifty. But I don't think it would be much with nerf.

You can make a bigger leather pouch for your existing slingshot to accomodate larger projectiles. But yeah, the small amount of leather that comes on all slingshots wouldn't hold much FBR in it's grip.

Hyperdog Biotch. Yeah I actually do own one of those. They shoot damn good once you get some practice. I've yet to shoot the damn thing in an open field for fear of losing the god damn dog, but it claims to shoot 200 feet, I'm confident it would easily clear 100, but really, not a nerf toy to be honest.

For tennis ball projectiles, I know of something at least probably less powerful, and it wins major style points. I found this nice link while searching for a LARP safe firearm (that wasn't easy).

If that doesn't work, search for tennis ball launching crossbow on google, it'll pop up. I mean, come on, how many sites are there?
I made one and I would post pics, but my camera is broken. It performs pretty well, but I currently use my modded x-bow to larp.
If interested, I might be able to get pics of this other person's 20lb pull bow and padded arrows, not too good (hideously unaerodynamic) but awesome, considering.
