Greetings from California!
Aug 10th, 2021 at 11:43am
 
Hello slinging.org,

Thank you for accepting my membership request. I'm excited to develop this ancient skill of slinging over the years.

I've begun practicing with marshmallow ammo since July 2021. Lately however, I've considered investing in other sorts of reusable ammo such as this toy product: https://www.amazon.com/More-fun-Toss-Catch-Game/dp/B01ELBPFA8

Thank you once again; be well everyone and have a blessed day!

Welcome from Pennsylvania!

That toy you have linked should work.  Although you'll be purchasing extra stuff you don't need (meaning the paddles).  Unless you want those too.  I (and likely a lot of other folks here) would recommend just getting some tennis balls.  Reusable and safe.

To start, tennis balls are an excellent choice.

Thank you for the warm welcomes and helpful advice!

I've gone and picked up this bag of tennis balls today:

I'll have time to begin reading through the forum folders this weekend.

Greetings from the great north.
I love using marshmallows as ammo. Great for indoor practice. Alternatively I recommend cork plugs.

Yo from New Jersey.  Starting with non lethal ammo is always a great idea.  Welcome.

San Jose! I'm very close, I live in Livermore. Maybe someday we can get the CA slingers together and blast apart some watermelons or something...

On the theme of California slingers I'm still looking for someone in la.

I know the state is about 4 times bigger than my whole country, and I struggle to get people to travel less than 50 miles.

Just thought I'd remind anyone, I still need a slinger in la.

And welcome to the forum, person with weirdly random username Smiley
