Slungshots in Movies: "Death Wish" (1974)

Yesterday, I started a new project in documenting Blackjacks, Saps (aka Slapjack), Knuckle Dusters or Slungshots in Movies or TV.  In case you missed it, you can find it here:

Today's entry is a scene featuring a 'slungshot' from Charles Bronson's Death Wish.

"Death Wish" (1974) is the earliest movie I've come across with a 'slungshot' scene. Charles Bronson's "Paul Kearsey" fills a sock with 2 rolls of quarters and takes on a would-be mugger armed with it.

Happy "Slungshot"-day!

(This section I will not add towards November's tally as well as the header picture and video I made above... I will only use hand-drawn pictures or animated GIFs I've created towards Nov's NaNoWriMo totals):

It looks like I made my goal of 50,000 words via text and pictures towards the National Novel Writing Month/NaNoWriMo. Although I had a secondary goal of blogging everyday which I was not able to accomplish, but with NaNoWriMo, the ultimate goal was to blog regularly.

This post: 9,117 = 117 words + 9,000 (9 GIF's at 1,000 each)
November running tally: 64,830 words
Words in excess of NaNoWriMo's 50,000:  14,830
