Mr Potter,

  I received your name from Aussie.  I teach a sunday school class for young adults.  I can think of no better way of bringing the story of David And Goliath to life than showing them that if they have belisef in God anything is possible.  Could you or would you have something on hand for sale that resembles what David would of used?  I know the biblical record makes no reference to kind of sling used.  I would assume it was made of wool but that is just a guess.  It would mean a lot to several people.  If you have something on hand I will take care of the bill myself,

Please let me know
Mike Kearne
god Bless

Froissart describes the battle of Najera-- the relevant passage is:

The Spanish commoners made use of slings, to which they were used, and from which they threw large stones which at first much annoyed the English; but when their first cast was over, and they felt the sharpness of the English arrows, they no longer kept their order.

Wow, I was a massive fan of Asterix as a kid but I had completely forgotten that! You can see the artist didn't know how a sling actually works, which is a shame.
