It was scary seeing that fist sized rock coming right at the camera!  What if you had gotten really lucky/unlucky and nailed the camera?

Loved the sound it made, though.

Hmm, observing myself my technique is not so good. I need to stretch my arm more.

At a short distance like 5-10 meters pretty straight, afterwards lob, but it depends on your strength

A destruction video would be amazing. Wouldnt mind seeing the pinhole glasses design either but now im just asking for too much. I wonder if the increased focus from pinhole glasses would benefit form enough to in a round about way increase power as well. Since power is mostly from correct form rather than brute strength. Would make for a very interesting video.

Slinging big stones is quite fun. Good view of it coming towards the camera too. What length of sling were you using?
