Sling[edit]

 It had been brooding for some time now;-). Willi had made himself a táthlum-style sling, so I decided I wanted one, too...*ggg*. This is the cut... I made it from 2 mm leather. The seams are all on the outside, and the smooth side of the leather is inside. I made a simple finger loop and a quick sling release strap.
All in all, a quick and dirty version that took me 15 minutes to make.

What can I say... it is a fierce weapon, and I certainly would not at all have wanted to be an infantery legionary in the Roman - Celtic wars.... I have to practice a lot still, but the one time I accomplished a fast overhand shot I hit an old tree stump, which exploded as if hit with a .45 bullet.

  1. That's a sling. A slingshot is the one with a handle and elasticated band.

  2. Thank you, Sam, I will change that immediately! Sometimes it shows I am no native speaker... my apologies for that!

Now go on, discuss and rant and push my ego;-). As long as it´s a respectful message, every comment is welcome!
