Is This Weapon Legal? by Johnholmes: 3:25am On Sep 14, 2020
Due to the increase in crime rate in nigeria .people are becoming increasingly wary about security.
Nigeria is not like the US were firearms can easily be procured readily but on the other hand ,there are some oweapons which are still legal that can be used for self defence .
Examples include sticks ,knives ,slingshots etc .

There is a particular slingshot aka catapault that caught my attention.
It's the RS-X7 doomsday slingshot pro.
Features include:

-Accurate Scope

-Repeat firing (up to 40 rounds)

-Powerful up to 50metres

It's an awesome weapon for self defence and even offense.


Pls I just wanna know if this modified slingshot/catapult is legal so I can procure it?

The useless police we have wanted to arrest me after a routine stop and search because of a Swiss army survivor kit which they branded as a weapon.

You are living in a despotic Marxist state where your God given rights to self preservation is denied

That sling shot will be considered as a weapon of mass destruction by those fools.

But with little modification, I can turn that sling shot to a Molotov launcher.

cheesy You are very correct. I have never seen an illiterate, irresponsible and useless set of police force like ours. Very useless people.

To the Op: you can make enquiries at the police hq at obalende if they will allow it and then apply for a permit,because these illiterate police officers will just arrest you once they see it with you or they receive an info that such a gadget is in your possession, and claim its a gun eventhough they can see it doesn't use actual bullets, yes they are that dumb.
