    A+ slingshots, his double band hunting set is powerful nd affordable

    Bicycle inner tube, tourniquets from any hospital/Doc office would probably have no prob giving you a few. Actual bands I don't know though.

    I use replacement wrist rocket bands, bought from Walmart. They come with the leather pouch already installed.

    A good pharmacy will often sell flat bands (Thera-band Blue or Gold) if you're looking to make your slingshot with flat bands instead of tubed bands. They sell them as physiotherapy aids, which is their primary function.

    Hope this helps,
