Oh yah, I used a sling too. Hit planet Earth everytime! Couldn't find my stones after that so I plan to paint them international orange to help with this  Smiley

Welcome, welcome! Always glad to meet more slingers. Please be sure to make it official and post an intro on the Introduction page. (Not everyone on Slinging.org ventures into the savage depths of the other primitive weapons section.   Wink  )

One of us, one of us, gooble, gobble, gooble, gobble, one of us! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Id4G57HwTEs Grin But in all seriousness, welcome. You will find some of the nicest groups of people on the internet here, at least that's what I think. We all love to help, and love to spread the knowledge of our favorite weapon, the sling!

I REALLY dig that first knife throwing technique you showed. Can you accurately launch a knife over distances similar to conventional knife throwing techniques like that? I tried with a ballpoint pen and stick (I have no access to a knife at my current location) and found it pretty accurate with some practice.

Your spoon atlatl inspired me to try something similar with my fingers, thumb and pinkie holding the pen and index launching it. And again I found it to be ok accurate and I guess practice will do wonders.

In your "Various ways of knife throwing" you show various non-spinning techniques. How accurate are those? A video focusing just on non-spinning techniques would be cool. I don't think anyone has done that before. Wonder why  Huh

Sorry for the loaded comment. Your videos are awesome!
