Can I get my slingshot bands wet?

Will water harm my slingshot bands?
“Does putting slingshot bands in water hurt them at all?”
Good news. Water will not harm your slingshot bands at all.
You can take them out shooting in the rain, you can drop your slingshot out of your canoe and fish it out, getting your band sets wet is no problem. What you do want to consider is how water will affect your shot.
If you get your pouch wet, for example, it can start to conform to your ammo in a way that may change your shot. Worst case scenario, your pouch deforms enough to increase your likelihood of a return to sender. Not extremely likely, but it is possible.
Also, your grip on the pouch and other dynamics of the shot will change when your bands are wet. So, if you’re out shooting in the rain, make sure that you know how your slingshot performs when wet.
But the short answer is, no problem at all.
