Hello From Pennsylvania
Jul 22nd, 2018 at 10:19pm
 
Greetings Everyone,

I am Flint. I took up slinging several weeks ago because I broke my slingshot. Needless to say, I am absolutely hooked on slinging now, as well as constructing slings out of any natural or synthetic materials I get my hands on. I'm normally more of a lurker than an active forum member, but the community here seems pretty nice, so here I am.

I'll end my intro here, but if anyone has any questions for me, I'll be around.

Welcome from Finland! That sling looks really nice. I still haven't properly nailed a woven pouch. It's on the To Do list.

Thank you! I've come to learn that my woven pouches are only as good as my patience.

I'm just above you in Western NY. We'll have to get together someday.

If you're next to Erie, that only about 2-2.5 hours north of me. I'm just a bit south of Pittsburgh.

Near Buffalo, so not that far. Maybe there's a place halfway?
