its good to see you all are still here!!!
Aug 5th, 2007 at 3:15pm
 
First, this is a very informative site and I thank you all for shareing the knowledge and wisdom.
I had a previous membership under bcereus but i think it was deleted during my time away from home.

I have good news, I made my first sling with the instructions given by Zorro.....the one with the medical tape.
I felt ECSTATIC during my first attempts at using it.
Because of my location I had to adapt the technique for indoor use. I set up an 8 inch target on the wall using about 2 inch paper balls.  
I have a 30 percent accuracy inside 8 inches and 70 percent accuracy inside 12 inches all at 15 feet.
I am right handed and  drift to the left out side 12 inches during release, why?
I am using the under hand throw with the retention cord on my ring finger and the release in-between the thumb and index.
My projectiles release extremely fast and hard….. I was shock by the potential of the sling.

I hope to send some photos soon.

Thank you all for the welcome.

Have fun, see you around!

Actully for me it was "now that can't be right", then once I got the ammunition weight down and loaded it into my test staff sling that i built to help with the training, It was HOLY FREAKING ( Or a very similar word) COW!!!!! once I loaded up the hand sling it WHOA, and I was hooked, now trying to work on accuracy.
