Joerg Sprave is a force to be reckoned with in the world of slingshots. Much like I am a force to be reckoned with in the world of soft-serve ice cream consumption. His high-performance GloveShot incorporates a hand brace to allow for increased stability and aim, plus the use of bands with higher pull weight. Also, bracing against the back of the hand instead of the forearm slides the GloveShot into law abiding weaponship in some states that have banned slingshots that brace against the forearm. Cha-ching! Always a beautiful day in the neighborhood when someone finds a viable way to circumvent the law!

The implications of the GloveShot's back-o'-the-hand brace are that the slingshot sports a horizontal handle, and projectiles fire over the top of the hand, so aiming and firing positions look more like lining up a bow and arrow. The weapon's three main components bond together with 4 stainless steel pins and 2 stainless check nuts, the latter of which may be unscrewed for quick disassembly. This construction also allows for a flip of the handle to configure the slingshot for righties or lefties. Standard 16-pound pull weight flat bands return the traditional, high-performance accuracy distributor Montie Gear claims in all of its slingshots, but since the GloveShot is equipped for higher weight band fittings, purchasing a double flat band will enable a pull weight of 30 to 35 pounds.

GloveShots have a waterjet-cut aluminum frame and a paracord with a 550-pound breaking strength that wraps the slingshot and brace. All parts are made in the US, with product fabrication in North Carolina. Available colors include Digital Woodland Camo, Digital Desert Camo, Black, and, awww, ladies and metrosexuals, Pink.
