I know this has been properly posted, but I felt like adding a link to this slinging milestone

Ever been up a hillfort in february, in driving rain, freezing winds and slinging with gloves on - still managed 68% total hit rate Smiley

The book is very good. I can't claim to understand half the statistical analysis.
I can tell you that every head shot would have killed.  Didn't see any point doing it, unless I was doing it properly and with feeling Smiley

I believe my battle cry was along the lines of: 'take that you scum sucking bastards !'
Pete doesn't mention that - or the fact that he flinched every time I did a warm up throw with an empty sling.

Or that it nearly killed david climbing the hill.

Was good fun, in  a weird kind of way Smiley
