Title: help me find this aticle!
Post by justin Ball on Jul 25th, 2004 at 10:55am
I've quoted an aricle a few times in various posts, and said it was in the articles section. I've looked again, and can't find it. It must have been when I first started looking at slinging that I found it, it may even have had a link to here, and hence, how I found "here".

Anyhow, it was a short piece by an Israeli officer who took his men out grenade practice throwing. One soldier sat during a break and made a sling and began to use it. The other soldiers and the officer remarked what a novel may it was to throw granades. The soldier replied that in [African country with a Jewish pop] "...that is how we are trained to launch grenades".

Anyone else read it, seen it, know how to find it and post a link?

I don't remember seeing that here, but did find it on another web site somewhere in the past.

Sorry,

I do remember the storybut not the place. It was about 6-8 months ago in some post I think.
