Sling

I received this sling in the mail quite some time ago now from a chap i know in the USA, the sling is made from 550 para cord with a finger loop on one end, a leather pouch to hold the projectile and a bead & free floating paracord Turks head knot that is held between thumb and fore finger, which is released to let the projectile fly whilst using the thing.

Now this is not to be confused with a slingshot as you US based chaps call it, or as we call it a catapult, this weapon packs down very small as you would guess, considerably smaller as you don't have a frame for a start, but the power of centrifugal force is not to be messed with, the speed at which pebbles come flying out of this sling is incredible, now if i could only gain some accuracy with it ;-), i just need practice using it - a lot of practice.
