OH! Would that I had stones around here like those shown in your pictures!  Glorious, smooth round stones!  Florida really doesn't have them.  Embarrassed

I know that feeling...it never ceases to amaze me how valuable something like a stone can be when you see it from the right point of view!

I found in ostsee really good steine.

They are also called "wall stones".

These are flintstones

People who live near the Baltic Sea (Ostsee) are lucky. In my home region, there is almost no flint. All harvested away in the Neolithic. You have to drive to Belgium or France to find decent stones.

That is exactly the technique I used here:

You can see my first few throws with the shield are quite weedy but I picked up the power towards the end.

The shield seems to move out of the way upon release

Hi David,


I have seen your video.

However, thus one can only shoot if one stands behind own line.

In the battle must stand shield always in front.
I have to go constantly ready his of the Sling to the sword to be able to change.

I have already fought in some battles in this manner and even have survived.

The tactics behaviour of a Slingers in the fight is extremely complicated.
