Chainsaw bayonets are the most dangerous weapons in the world!
***IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THE ABOVE QUOTE***
****BACK ON TOPIC****
Slingshots have been used as military weapons, but primarily by guerrilla forces due to the primitive resources and technology required to construct one. Such guerrilla groups included the Irish Republican Army; prior to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Saddam Hussein released a propaganda video demonstrating slingshots as a possible insurgency weapon for use against invading forces.

Great news, though it won't pass.

If they hadn't run out of page space they could have added in BB & Airsoft guns.
(UK) Since October 2007 you can only buy a realistic imitation firearm (one that looks like a real gun) if you are at least 18 years old and meet one of the following conditions:
• You are a 'registered' airsofter with membership of an insured skirmish site. To be registered, you must attend a properly organised and insured airsoft site and play for at least three days over a period of no less than two months. Even if you attend and play the three days in your first week, UK Law requires that two months pass from the first day you attended before you can legally be registered.
• You are a member of a properly insured historical re-enactment group or society.
• You are a film, television or theatre production company.
• You are (or are acting on behalf of) a museum
• You are a Crown Servant in pursuance of your Crown duties
If you cannot meet any of these criteria, you can still buy an imitation firearm, one who's principle colour is significantly different to that of a real firearm – i.e. bright green, bright blue etc.
