Slinging Rocks!

Hello all, I am new to the forum but slinging has been an off and on thing for me for years. I am now retired out of the Army and have more time to explore slinging. I am in the Utah area. I hope to post some of my ideas that have been on the dusty back shelf of my mind for some time and bring them to light. Hopefully with some feedback from all of you they can be fine tuned and shared with all.

Nothing fancy, but here are a few I put together. Bottom one was for the kiddo. It launches a bouncy ball pretty good Smiley

Ok wrong photo, these are the slings, the other photo is my reloading equipment , if you will. I found a meatball former (kitchen gadget) works well with clay. A little shortening so it comes out easier and a dowel if needed to push it out. It already has a hole top and bottom to do that.

Nice looking slings and the meatball former is  pretty cool idea. Curious_Aardvark 3D prints some clay glandes rollers which I've heard good things about. When I'm not using rocks and tennis balls, I make use of an ice ball mould. They make surprisingly good ammo. I've already managed to convert a few members to using ice balls Cheesy

any chance of resizing pics before posting ?

right finally got them on one screen lol

Neat split pouch slings.
Can't stand them personally, but nice braiding Smiley

Yeah clay balls are very good ammo.
Cheap and enviromentally friendly.
