Howdy From Vermont
Jan 15th, 2023 at 10:29pm
 
Hey there, glad to get an account here.

I've been slinging for 2 years, mainly in the pursuit of range and power as I can't be bothered to get good at accuracy lol.
Before this, I've been into slingshots for at least the last decade, airguns for the last 14 years, firearms for the last 15 years, and airsoft for the last 6 years.
I came across slinging from a Primitive Technology video a while ago and slowly got better, starting with a belt during free bands at my last year of highschool. Eventually tried chainsaw rip cord and leather pouches, and now have a homemade 92 inch braided coreless paracord sling, a 110 inch Smiling sling, and a soon to be power sling similar to Irongoober's sling. I sling clay, eggs, and frozen eggs, but most importantly I sling aluminum and bronze.
I cast aluminum, bronze, and lead sling bullets as well as golf balls, and have sent them to Practical Paracord for the last your for his videos. I'll be ramping up production in the spring or summer, but for now you can get them from him if you wanna give them a shot. I will be improving my patterns and molds though, and they will be absolutely identical in weight, shape, and size after I get some new pieces.

Anyways, glad to be here, and do check out these here videos that have some of my stuff.

I was hoping you'd join the forum. Welcome! Those brass glandes would be great for distance.
