Interested in Primitive Weapons
Aug 20th, 2021 at 1:23pm
 
I'm in Georgia, USA, North of Atlanta.  I've joined this website in an attempt to further sate my curiosity RE primitive weapons - bow/arrow, slings, slingbows, slingshots, atlatls, bolas . . . basically things that'll poke your eye out.  I figure now that I'm retired I need a hobby and so far sewing, weaving, woodworking, metalworking (VERY limited), reloading, and shooting just aren't doing it for me.

Hey welcome from Australia! You will find plenty of likeminded people here! And those skills you have developed such as sewing, and metalworking etc will help you along your journey...

sounds like you need to check out Timpa's posts and† videos.
You've probably got most of the skills to replicate some of his creations Smiley
https://www.youtube.com/user/TimpaLinkosling/videos

Just tell people you're getting ready for the zombie apocalypse whistle
When you look at some of the crap on youtube that gets millions of views - timpa SHOULD be huge and making money hand over fistknife.

Should we be encouraging people to follow in the footsteps of Timpa? Cheesy

Be happy and welcome,
Cheers

My outlook on life is Aristotalean; on seeing an Acorn I see a potential oak tree rather than Plato's view that it is a failed copy.
Look forward to meeting at Slingfest 2022.
