    Sorry to break it to you but ever the most powerful sling shots bounce of of human skin. If it was pure human fat sure. But gelatin is just cooked off protien. It works decent in real guns only. And decent at best btw

    Since you've spoiled a lot of precious beer. I think you should learn how to chug, learn how to open up your throat. Do practice with water though..

    7:00 Well, No a ballistic gell only represents your flesh, not your skin and the bones behind your flesh that strenghten it.
