An even better idea! I didn't think of that.

The tooth grip is known as shark style and everyone knows sharks eat bears as part of their diet in retaliation to the salmon murders every year.

Trying to remember if I ate mushrooms. This is usually how it feels after eating them.

Wouldn't the razor grenades cut the sling unless you padded the grenade somehow?    whistle

Shark-style razor grenades?! Come on!  Everyone knows that sharks prefer to sling laser glandes, and they always aim for the eyes Grin

That's the tricky part - It's all in how you place it in the pouch. Padding does help a lot though. I once traveled to the Sharktooth Archipelago in the Pacific back in '17, where I picked up the idea for the Hair Sling from the native islanders, who braided their long hair into slings. They used the style in conjunction with razor grenades (leftover unexploded ordinances from the second World War) to hunt a variant of island bear. The more unpracticed youngsters tended to accidentally wind up with buzz-cuts after improperly loading their hair-slings. I met with the elder to discover the secret before trying it myself, but I wasn't able the master the "shark-tooth grip" for which the islands are named (hence its absence in the graphic.)

...In case any of you were wondering, the razor grenades were an experimental weapon that the Japanese Empire tested later in the war, and ultimately were rejected, because they were too dangerous to throw (Cut fingers and hands, etc.) Most of them were dumped in massive quantities, and the Sharktooth islanders have been using them ever since.
