No, I don't have anything to trade really. Both my slings and slingshots look amatuerish.  :-[

By the way, I saw you on the slingshot channel forum!

man. i might like one of those. You give out the bands and pouches too? if so, a few spare bands would be nice.  WHat do you want for them other than slings? i have no problem making them. but with several hand injuries due to a hatchet, I am kinda down in the weaving department. However, i would be happy to send it to you... if you want it. i could also give you one of my own slingshots.

I'm the proud owner of a ghost slingshot.  They are really well thought out weapons, incredibly ergonomic, and very substantial feeling in your hands.  I couldn't be happier with mine, and much much prettier in person!  I would recommend one of Joe's slingshots to anyone.

I couldn't agree more AT.  I love the slingshots I got from ghost.  They're not childrens' toys.  I'm amazed at the accuracy once I figured out how to hold and aim one.  Anyway, I'm a pleased customer also.

Man. I LOVE slingshots.. and those look really nice.
Would you like any thing in particular, like some certian type of sling?
I figured something out.. use boxes if you want something to get there!
Anyway, I can make things from metal-16 gauge is my fav steel!
I make small harpoons with wood hafts, I also make mini-harpoons... I can also send you some leather.
I can make BL arrow shafts, or I can make and send you some woven-pouch slings, 8 strand weave...
Other than that, please specify.
Thanks,
Squirrel
EDIT= most of the stuff I make is usually BL or ERC. I can also make Javalins, but not sure if some things are legal to mail....

I have recently discovered that I'm pretty good at weaving. Not so good with braiding though..... If you are willing to trade I can make some pouches for a slingshot. PM me if your interested.

Title: Re: slingshots
Post by squirrelslinger on Feb 1st, 2013 at 10:52pm
hmmmmm I cannot weave super, it tries my patience. But I can braid a 3 strand braid super-fast. as in creepy-fast. 4 strand and above I stink at, minus a 6 and 12 strand kernmantle braid.
and a spanish whipping.... But thats a whole other story....
Maybe..

I have also found some bamboo in my area to make kubings. Check out my thread on it in others topics. I could make you one, again, PM me if interested

Title: Re: slingshots
Post by squirrelslinger on Feb 1st, 2013 at 11:27pm
I have access to bamboo, as well... What type?
Can you take a pic of the bamboo stand, just it, and one of an end of a tube, to see how thick the walls are?
If they are long enough, I might ask you for some!
And waht are Kubings?

Title: Re: slingshots
Post by Revolutionary on Feb 2nd, 2013 at 10:15am
I don't have a camera at the moment, so no pics :'( a kubing is a instrument that is about 1mm thick and the length of a ballpoint pen. You hold one end and there is a tongue in the other end. Then you put the part of the kubing with the tip of the tongue In between your lips. Now you are holding one end and have the middle part in between your lips, then you pluck the end that you aren't holding with your other hand. This instrument is a little hard to explain, so if this didn't help just look up kubing on YouTube.

i've played with slingshots all my life but recently, like in the past year or so, have taken up the hobby of using tapered, light banded slingshots to shoot bb's.  the accuracy and speed of those things, just amazing.  cheap to shoot too.  the other day i shot through both sides of a pizza box and made a hole in the wall which my friend has not noticed yet...hey i did not think it would go all the way through so easily...
