What's the most unusual thing you've slung?
Mar 24th, 2021 at 8:22pm
 
The weirdest thing that comes to mind is a random bottle of hand sanitizer I found on some grass. It flew further than I expected. I never found it!

A ~10 oz steak. I slinged (slung? slang? Sluunged?) it into the sea. It was a bunch of my friends and myself camping. This was our sacrifice to the sea gods for good weather during our trip.  Can't say if it worked one way or another, but it flew about 70 yards.

Nothing particularly unusual for me.  Nothing I haven't had in a video.  I would probably rank it as a tie between an ice block weighing almost 4 lb and miniature pumpkins.  The pumpkins weren't so strange by themselves, but they were being slung (almost) straight up in the air so I could get underneath them with a shield.

Mini- flapjack squares

They fell out in the bottom of my bag and got dirty so there was simply no excuse not to sling them. Flew pretty well too.

I believe the correct word is slang. Anyways, that's definitely weird but still awesome! I'm sure y'all had a blast.

One time I was with a group of people at a park and we found a native orange tree hidden behind some vegetation. We took a few oranges for cooking. However, I can assure you that the bad ones on the ground were properly dealt with. Who knows if I unknowingly planted some orange trees by slinging them?

This is the beauty of the sling. If it can be seated in the pouch, it can be slung. Anything from leaden bullets to grenades. From potatoes to flapjack squares!

I have a new sling which makes this even easier. Post coming soon but it's a shotgun sling. If it can fit in the tube it can fly Cheesy

I have a tiny drone that would fit but it doesn't have a camera Sad I would totally do that otherwise though.

I eagerly await the post! I'm curious to see what design you came up with. I only know two of them. The one with two pouches and the normal sling with gravel.

I put a firecracker in a snowball, lit the fuse, and chucked it straight up.  It makes a muffled Pwoff! and you get an instant snowstorm.
