    Question

    Has anyone ever made a david style slingshot? They're really cool. I made one and researched a little. I found out they could go 2000 feet!!!!!!!! I also found out about a dart sling, that is suppose to be 10 times stronger than a bow and arrow. It has a 200 meter range. There is also a weapon called a staffsling, which is a sling on a stick. I made one of these and it probably went 200 yards. I ready they have a 5000 feet range, by ancient sling warriors.

Ancient slingers though, were VERY accurate. It's said they could hit any part of an enemy's head! Slinging Forum/Website

    Yes, I can sling. I can also whip, dart, throw knives, and am a passable archer. It's sort of a very strange thing, a Zen. I don't know how I do it, it is all very unconscious, but it works. I just reach out and touch the spot, out there. The time it takes for me to touch it is the space that is covered, but it is a reaching out type thing. Add in the gravity bow, and it's bullseye!

    I used to be quite a good shot with a blow gun. Home made! I could shoot that sucker so high you would loose sight of the dart.
    I have to go and build a new one now. I wanna shoot something. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
