Not new but new level of activity.
Sep 28th, 2023 at 1:37pm
 
Hi from Utah, United States.  Not new to the forum, I've been a member for a longtime but had to start a new account in 2018 because of an email change. I have known how to sling since I was taught by a friend in high school but only ever used the sling to blow off steam and throw for distance.  As I aged (I am 45 this year) I got out of the habit of taking a sling with me but I stumbled onto "Practical Paracord" on YouTube and Channing got me interested again. I am using it to help me remember to exercise daily after a long time of inactivity.  I am enjoying myself and wanted to delve into the hobby a little more and see if I can develop some accuracy.  I am enjoying perusing the forum.  Hopefully I can add to the knowledge base.  I have been playing with experimental archaeology and primitive skills and weapons of all types since I was a kid. Slinging is just one of many weapon types I am fascinated with.

Welcome back, or welcome again, whatever!  Grin

Glad to hear you're getting into slinging again.  Channing is a great dude.  He's definitely brought slinging to the attention of a lot of people.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

Don't be afraid to post! The forum has been a bit slower as of late and we'd love to hear what you have to say.

Welcome back. I'm probably on the other side of the mountains in Colorado, although I only started slinging a few weeks ago.
