Title: pleasantly surprised
Post by SPOOKYSHOGUN on Sep 27th, 2003 at 12:01pm
Hello all,

            I was pleasantly surprised to happen upon this site. I'd like to introduce myself to you fellow slingers. My name is Michael and I've been slinging for 11 years. I make my slings out of leather with my own variations of the standard theme. I aspire to braid like WhipArtist though I may lack the patience. My latest sling fetish is sparring with my friends using tennis balls. I figured I may as well get a feel for the combative aspect but safely :) .It is great to find a group that shares the same passion for the sling. I look forward to communicating with all of you.

Welcome Spookyshogun,

I think you'll find this site quite informative, and a darn good browse too.  

I like that tennis ball idea!  I haven't got to sling at anything moving yet.  I'll be sure to try that at my unsuspecting friends.  Thanks for the deviant idea!

hehe....

Leon

Welcome,

Cultivate your patience and you will succeed at the braiding.  I don't have the patience for it either.  Only in spurts of time.  The forum and website are awesome, have fun!

Welcome to this most interesting and wonderful site.

I found Slinging.org only a couple of weeks ago myself, but have not been disappointed.

This site compiling what appears to be the largest online compilation of slinging information.

The members are quite friendly and informative as well.  Come by often and check out what is going on; you won't be let down.

JeffH <>< - who welcomes you!

Welcome!

As with all new members, I look forward to your unique insights on the sling.  As several people have noted, the members on this forum are a great bunch which share a common enthusiasm for the sling.  I think everyone who has participated in the forum has learned something new, which is what this site strives to do; share knowledge about this truly fascinating weapon.  

Chris

lmao - 'Appears'  - Is the largest - IS my friend.

As for paintballs - too light, I'm still working on a weighted sling pouch to get them up to a decent velocity without pulling a muscle.

As there are such a large number of newbies around at the moment - I'd like to take this moment to point out the vast number of topics that already exist on the forum - as pretty much every single new topic I've seen since getting back from wyoming is a copy of at least two others already existing.

Try looking through some of the 'older' topics before leaping in with a 'new' one :-)

Aardvark, this is an old topic from 2003. If I am correct, in 2003 this forum was published so this site was relatively young back then. As it was quite young you could not know back then whether it was the largest or not, or could you?
