God bless your heart BK,  you must try and verbally defecate on another's beliefs whenever that urge comes over you.  Surely there are many other forums you can inhabit which are more tolerable of your immature brand of intolerance.

The people of the Middle east in the biblical times made sling stones. They were made of either flint, or limestone, and up to 2 inches in diameter, so the pouch of the slings would hav to be big enough to accomodate the stones.
  Tech, if you could send me your complete address, I could mail off the info you asked for.

Dear Mr. Stuff, I am very sorry that you took offense at my post. There was a question mark at the end that you perhaps did not notice. In any case, if your children are in fact misguided then you have my deepest sympathy. If they are not then I am sorry for your lack of humor and you still have my deepest sympathy. I offer my humblest appology for any slight you may have felt. That was not my intent to malign any person or group( especially the USMC ). Embarrassed

Since I am in Israel I will take some time out and check out the historical sling situation when I have a chance and post. If anyone has any specific question please post and I will do my best to try to find out what's what according to the curator who is an Israeli and definitely not an Israelite!! Cheesy

Thanks,
Derek

The Hebrews would most likely have used the following sling design:

Considering the fact that the Isrealites were under tremendous 'peer' pressure to conform to the practices of their neighbors (the philistines, the moabites, etc), they would likely have used the slings characteristic to that region of the world.
