    So I thought I might share my previous experiences. I have been a member<br> of Slinging.org for over a year now and have been making slings for <br>even longer. Although I am fairly accurate, i.e. can hit a can at 50ft, <br>it is less constant because ammo uniformity is key. I made my own ammo <br>for a while, concrete eggs, but have since moved on. Here are some <br>pictures of slings I have made:<br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0428.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/IMG_0543.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/P1010218.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/slinging/IMG_0540.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/slinging/IMG_0541.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://i1204.photobucket.com/albums/bb416/CarbonEvergreens/slinging/IMG_0537.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br>Anyway, hope you enjoyed the pics!

    It is a sling, not a slingshot.

    Instinct! That is the easiest way to explain it. If you can throw a baseball and hit a target then you can learn to use a sling.<br><br>It is quite a challenge, actually it makes using a slingshot look easy! I still am no master, but got a little bored with it. Try it out! It's very fun and addicting

    Flipper ha ha ... I remember several years ago I tried once, don't ask me where the stone flew, I didn't saw it, only heard the stone hitting elsewhere ... it was good to be alone in an open field ...

    Haha! It's ok, we all go through that. I practice in my small back yard, sadly it is the only safe place and there is glass everywhere! I had to learn fast not to hit anything, and somehow I never did!

    Hello Flipper,<br>i never tried it, but at the place i´m shooting most of the time, a guy is shooting with a sling.<br>Maybe he is friendly, if i ask him to let me try it.<br>Otherwise he is armed and me too.<br>So we have to shoot it out. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_razz.gif" alt="Razz" longdesc="9">
