Our favorite crazy slingshot maker, Joerg Sprave, can seemingly turn anything into a weapon. And recently his scavenging skills were put to the ultimate test when a magazine challenged him to turn everyday trash into an improvised arsenal.

Did he succeed? Well, if you're familiar with Joerg's past efforts you'll know the answer is a resounding yes. Using trash found around his property, he turned old chili powder into pepper spray, cans and batteries into bolas, and a broomstick and latex gloves into a crossbow. And stick around until the end where Joerg also shows off a couple of new slingshots, including a grape launcher that he hopes will help set a new Guinness World Record. [YouTube]
