love the target.

So - as an expert - what brand of marshmallow makes the best ammunitions ?

As an expert on marshmallow munitions  Grin, I find white jet-puffed marshmallows to be superior. They don't stick together as do other marshmallow brands (unless you leave them in your car in the sun).  They fly great too.  I have put other brands in the freezer for about 30 minutes and it helps (or leaving them out for 6 months opened also does the trick...be careful if you do that though, they are as hard as a rock when they hit).

I like to split them in half to allow them to cut through the air a little bit more and the bag lasts longer.  Usually at the Passion Play, we go through about a bag of marshmallows a night since that is a far safer way to teach kids how to use slings.

So, go Jet-Puffed marshmallows!

I'm in the process of updating my website.  For now, check out www.ShepherdSling.net.

Let me know what you think!  Have to get a few more videos on the site.

Interesting story: I went on vacation with my parents to Idaho, and we stopped by Sun Valley.  By chance, we ate at the same place that Tom Hanks was eating (this was a couple of months ago).  He was very nice and extremely gracious.  We got pictures with him, and that was it.

Until, I get an email this morning from a lady from France who is doing a story on vacationing in Sun Valley on some major French broadcasting station.  She asked to use the picture.  Looks like I am going to be on the Tube (or whatever they call it in France) at the end of the month! 

Crazy World!

I have quite a few slings on Amazon now. Smiley

The other day had a kid come by the Passion Play with a sling I had made about 3 years ago.  Neat to see an old sling as I can tell an improvement with my work.

Hey there David! I am an avid slinger, and although I am fairly good at the actual slinging (not really) I have recently been into crafting my slings with a more creative intent in mind. I would love to get your feedback on my work, or lack of If that be the case! Thanks!

Wondering if anyone out there is from Malta?  I just had someone get a shepherd sling from that country.  35 countries now that I have sent shepherd slings to...continue to spread the love Smiley

Glad to be a part of such a great community and really a family of slingers!  I don't post as often as I'd like, but it is fun to be a part of something like this. 

Sent a sling to Andorra last week.  Country #36 that I know slings are in now!

Just a little excited that shepherd slings that I make are in the top 30 best sellers in the "slingshot" category on Amazon. 

Before you know it, the shepherd sling will be at the top (hopefully!).

Life has been way too busy lately. Thankfully, I have still been able to sling. I just haven't had time to post or converse here!

I know the international sling competition for slinging will be March 1-5. I am interested to know if anyone would be interested in joining me for a stateside competition in Eureka Springs at the Passion Play?
