get good with a slingshot

Only Joerg Sprave's slingshots are powerful enough to take down a drone.

Tho they're somewhat easy to make with a few basic tools... and he's showing how to make them in most of his vids.

But at this point... why not getting yourself a powerful enough hunting rifle if you can acquire them in your region?

I've made quite strong and cheap slingshots using these rubber bands.

Maybe not strong enough to take down a drone but strong enough to brake a window

The best rubber bands afaik are those used for workout. There's a scale of colors used to indicate their resistance, where the black ones got the strongest resistance (no pun intended), and they may be best suited for those "slingshot rifles".

Here's a good idea for projectiles: charged capacitors. Easy to find for free in all kinds of circuits, with varying sizes and properties. Be careful when handling tho.
