Thanks guys!  I am always amused that so many people consider sling a toy.

Blimey that must have been a fast throw.
Your videos are always entertaining. 

Loved that last shot of the chair. there just something particularly comedic about it...

Great video as always Timpa!  I wasnít too surprised by the metal ammo since itís dense, hardened bearing steel going up against a soft, thin sheet metal, but I really didnít expect that rock to penetrate as well as it did. Thatís impressive!

Same. I've put big dents in metal pans but never gone through one. I might need to find some thinner metal and try and do the same Cheesy

in fact, this ammunition was made of ordinary steel.

Leave it to timpa to surprise an engineer in the matters of metal.
