a reply to: KingDoeyI do not live in the UK, but there is a weapon that can be lethal. It can be homemade or bought. All it takes is a couple ball bearing for ammo. Some surgical tubing, and a Y shaped branch from a sturdy tree. I am speaking about a sling shot. Just watch some Youtube video about slingshots. I am convinced they would do the trick for you.
You are typing about about a catapult, a sling shot is two lengths of cord with a leather cup at one end, its what David killed Goliath with, well, the stone actually killed Goliath.

Cold steel UK delivers a rather nice Assegai (Short Shaft) for about £50.
"Looks good on the wall" and is a club, spear, knife and axe.
If you were in the UK and you used some sort of modified ammunition in a Paintball/Airsoft gun to kill an intruder you would be in deep shizzle.

But only effective with a wide, open swing...preferably when your intended target is looking the other way (or otherwise incapacitated) so they don't simply block and catch that swing.
