Alternative weaponry

Because of my inherent mistrust in all things mechanical, I am starting to research alternative projective weapons. Of course, I plan on having enough guns stock-piled that if there should be a malfunction, I will have a back-up.

However, if for some reason I am forced to leave my armory (it's the apocalypse, this shit happens), I would like to have weapons that I can readily fix, if necessary. No doubt, I will have my trusty machete (she has served me well) and my trusty back-up machete, but I would also like to have some sort of ranged weapon.

The first thing that comes to mind is a slingshot. Slingshots have come a long way since I was a kid though. A quick google search yields a huge variety. Not to mention the possibility of making one myself. So it looks like I have to research to do.

This guy clearly represents why slingshots make incredible weapons.

If you had to go with something that had zero mechanical parts but could still kill a man (zombie)? If you could practice with a sling, it would be perfect. It's just a length of chord with a metal ball. Hit up a Home Depot or Lowe's and you have all the ammo you could ever need. This should be a back up weapon though.
