The sling my true everyday carry
Jul 21st, 2022 at 1:02pm
 
Hey everyone
I the good old sling no matter whatever hobbies
I get into I always have my old stand by sling in my pocket
It usually nothing more than to bide a little time down by a river
But has been useful occasionally from procuring game
To on one occasion discouraging abnoxious bear
Well any way I thought I would share the playlist of my few sling videos

The link isn't working for me.  The address has some extra stuff at the end.  Cutting the extra stuff off worked: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtnIwZ-jPWeBPmyUWG_JBI2H_R4Go7Hu7.

Good stuff man!  I don't normally carry a sling on me.  If I'm going disc golfing or something like that, I'll loop one through my belt.  Otherwise I have one in my truck all the time.  So I usually have a sling close at hand.  Smiley

Always have a sling in my pocket.

Extremely useful when explaining to people that I'm a SLINGER and NOT a swinger Wink

Plus has come in useful on quite a few occasions as a spare dog lead.

I'm surprised you needed a sling for a bear Lobo.
Would have thought you standing up and going 'Raarrgghhh'
Would do the job.
The poor bear would think: 'holy crap a sasquatch !' and leg it !
Smiley

That 'no windup reverse overhand' style is actually surprisingly effective.
I occasionally use it with a tennis ball for the dogs.

Useful when dream's jumping up and down and you don't want to smack him in the head with a windup. Smiley

Anyway when are we going to see you on forged in fire ?

Well CA I don't know about forged in fire
But have definitely used my sling as a temporary lead
Also a strap to carry wood books whatever needed at the time
As for the "no wind-up reverse overhand style"
That's my go too for hunting. Or really any time I really want to hit something inside of thirty yards lol
Good talking to you again CA.

CA that makes it sound like it was part of a plan
Not at all I saw the bear like many others and thought awe cool a bear
Then the bear did a couple fake charge's and grunts then stood up honestly I didn't think they really did that
Till then I freaked was yell and tossing sticks yes a couple of rocks in the sling
I am sure the Bear left because of the crazy beast in the woods  Cheesy
