Hello,

I am an American living in Saudi Arabia. I enjoy shooting slings and slingshots as well as scrounging lead and casting bullets for them(hand slings as well). Shooting slings and slingshots especially here is a cure for boredom, as many forms of entertainment you take for granted are banned.

Welcome Mr.Joel! I've made myself a few slings out of hemp and was very surprised at their power to toss fist sized rocks. I still take one out from time to time. Glad to have you with us.

I use 3oz egg sinkers i cast, and a nylon sling made by James Burdine. The power is quite impressive, although some practice is required to be accurate. Similar bullets were used in Greek and Roman times and were reputed to pierce armor. My experience with these leads me to have no doubt as to this being true.

I also have a South American wool sling that uses rocks, it also is quite powerful. My advice to begin is go with a foot-foot and a half length and one rotation casts to learn, do not go for length and power: learn to make hits before ypu get into multiple swings and long lengths, you will likely get frustrated and quit.
