A friend sent me this video the other week. It is of Rufus Hussey, a man from Asheboro, NC, who became know as The Beanshooter Man. Rufus is deadly with the sling shot. He can hit a penny dead center when thrown into the air or break a piece of straw in half that is held in the mouth of a willing participant.
Until his passing in 1994, Rufus also made and sold his own type of sling shot. Those are no longer available, but you can head over to Hickoree’s and pick up an Old Time Sling Shot. With a little luck, and a lot of practice, you might be able to rival The Beanshooter Man.
