Description
David knocked down Goliath with a sling and a stone, which for millennia was the world's most common long-distance weapon; before the advent of gunpowder, humans used a variety of nonexplosive weapons to fire small stones and carefully rounded bullets of clay, glass, and metal. In a lively narrative filled with practical information from the author's own experience, this unusual study explores the many ways in which missiles and projectiles can be hurled via mechanical means or human strength, including the bow and arrow, pump-action air gun, blowpipe, and catapult. Here too is information on ammunition and velocity, as well as how to make lead bullets.
