I think stuff like that is perfect, ping pong ball into a cup etc.
I must admit Iím pretty bored these days and a little indoor challenge could help. Really only worth it but if we get a few people on board. You and I do quite a few challenges in general.

Really enjoyed the coin challenge. I think Iím going to try shooting clays when this mayhem ends. Thatís pretty high on my slinging to do list.

It is.† The size makes it perfect for golfball-sized ammo indoors. Smiley

Oh, I forgot to mention, if anyone else wants to participate in the first indoor challenge, you don't need to do exactly what I did.† The basic idea is just to get two hits in a row.† It can be two hits on one target, or one hit on two different targets.† Definitely have fun with it and feel free to add some flare if you want.† I was about 15 ft (4.5 m) from my target and used little foam balls, but any distance and projectile is fine.† Hope to see some other entries. Smiley

It's up! And this is absolutely the best video I've ever made. It's a little different to Joe's and I actually only got the one hit, but I didn't want to keep trying and annoy the neighbours too much. Or my girlfriend...

I took every shot sat up in bed and I have to say it was a lot easier than I expected Cheesy I can't remember who brought up sitting and slinging and whether it was possible in a thread a little while ago, but, I can say now from experience, along with seeing Pepe in Mallorca do it, it isn't even that hard Cheesy

Great stuff guys!  Awesome slinging!

I really like your take on it Kick.  Very entertaining.

I've got an idea for the next one.  So that might be coming early next week depending how well it works.  I'm once again hoping to get out this weekend to finish my "Back up 10 feet challenge".  I got busy last weekend and wasn't able to.

Hope you get a chance to try the 'back up 10 feet' challenge Mersa.† I got through it today.† A very tiring experience.† I always forget that the seasons we're experiencing are reversed.† As you're coming in to winter, we're starting to see regular warm days.† Still getting a drop in temperature here and there though.

And for those days that aren't nice out, here's Indoor Challenge #2!† This one took me longer to get than I thought it would.

I had a quick test go at this because I wasn't sure of my sockball would bounce well. It's possible but ooo boy that's hard. I'm loving these challenges.I'll hopefully get it done later today. First I have to smash up a wooden pallet with a staffsling.

lol interesting overhand technique. Always looks counter intuitive to me, but a number of people seem to use it effectively.

Now as to your reasoning for your target selection I'm going to say you got that wrong and while you were slinging at the knight.
The little immortal strangling demon got you.
The knight is SLOW, the gollum is FAST.
Always kill the fast bastard first !

And yes - a somewhat worrying sword collection Wink
