Just arriving from brazil
Mar 26th, 2023 at 5:58pm
 
Hello guys, I'm an English teacher in Brazil, I love everything weapon related, but I have a special place in my heart for primitive weapons, basically any kind of weapon I could make myself  Grin
I used to shoot a lot with slingshots, hitting cans and them bottle caps, but after making a sling and trying it I fell in love with the thing.
I have been lurking this site for weeks now, I was quite amazed to find such a community about the sling and got a lot of great insight from your posts and discussions.
With time I will share all the slings I made and try to contribute with the forum, here's the best one I have so far
I'm very happy to be a part of this  Smiley

The default software usually works well enough.  If you're using Windows it will be Paint, if you have a Mac it will be Preview.  If you search online you can find instructions really quick.  Just shoot for an image size that's around 800 pixels across.  If it's a little more or less, that's fine.  But that size usually fits on the screen pretty well.

My issue is that I only have a phone, but I thing my problem was with the size of the images, they would usually be way to big to fit, so I just need to resize them, here's one of my slings as a test
