Moche Toss for slinging
Sep 6th, 2020 at 12:35am
 
This would be a fantastic event for a slinging get-together.

Something similar could certainly be designed for the sling...maybe just a paratrooper. Or maybe one of Jaegoors parachute sling balls.

That's really cool. Would you need specialist sling ammo for hitting the target like with the atlatls?

That looks lime fun!

You could probably do actual clay shooting with a y-sling launcher and a shotgun sling too

This weekend Im actually going to a shotgun club to try my best to hit a clay pigeon with the sling , going to use a full battery when filming I have no doubt and hopefully I can afford the amount of shots its going to take me. Very excited to try but also very intimidating. Ill be on display for everyone to see.

Mersa, if you get good at that, then we should see if we can get you hired to put on a show here in San Antonio at the NSSF shooting complex. They do the national skeet championship here every October, and its always a big production.

Well I was allowed to sling at the shotgun club.
Was funny the whole club basically laughed at me and said good luck.  You think you can keep up with the clay they move at 66mph. You want to sacrifice your shots to throw rocks?

Then I was only allowed 6 shots but it was well worth it.
0/6 but was pretty consistent groups and was pretty close for first 6 throws of the day with no warmup.
Im as happy as I can be for what went on,

Basically after the gun club was well impressed and Im sure they went home and told their wives.

Below is a clip where hopefully you see how close I was getting

if I'd had the faintest idea where the clay was - I suspect I'd have been impressed Smiley

Given that a handheld clay launcher is easy to get or make and boxes of clays are pretty cheap.

or what I'd probably go for:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Nitehawk-Pigeon-Shooting-Thrower-Training/dp/B0714QHJ32...

I don't see why it shouldn't be an event at the next organised sling gathering Smiley

I'd probably either use  ahandful of pebbles - or and actual sling 'shotgun round'.
Whish is a bunch of small even pebbles/gravel wrapped in a thin sheet of tissue paper.

That was awesome Mersa! Unbelievably close. I would definitely be up for giving it a go but I doubt I'd get within a mile.

That's great Mersa!  Good throw!  It definitely looks like a tricky one, being that the throwing motion is started before you even see the target.
