Instructables
This is a simple sling that me and my friends had fun with at the local wood. Although it did leave a few bruises!! =]

Step 1: You will need

Picture of You will need
1) Material (denim/leather is best)
2) Scissors
3) Swiss army knife (for the reamer) / punch
4) Marker pen
5) Needle
6) Cotton
7) String / thin rope

Step 2: Mark out and cut

Mark out a box on your material about
10CM X 8CM

Then cut it out

Step 3: Cutting to get shape

to get the shape for the pouch you have to cut a third in from the middle of the long side, on both sides

Step 4: Sewing

Overlap the new cuts about 8MM and tack it together. Do this on both sides

To neaten it up you can add a litle PVA glue to keep all the threads in.

Step 5: Punch

Punch holes in the middle of the two shorter sides.

Step 6: String it up!!

To find the length of the strings that you need place the string from fingers to mouth. Do this twice.

then tie a loop in one end of each string. Make sure it is not a loop that will slip.

Step 7: Put it all together

poke the loops you have made throught the holes you made earlier (fig 1.)

put the ends of the strings through the loops and pull all the way through (fig 2.)

Step 8: Add the finger loop

for this loop you take ONE of the strings and make a slip knot that will tighten on your finger.

Step 9: Firing

to fire put the slip loop on your index finger and the other end in your fingers.

then spin round either over your head or under arm depending on which you prefir.

Thge best ammo for this is large BB's, like the one in the picture.

It is all about timing so on your first few throws make sure your not near anyone.

Please leave feedback.

"me and my friends" --- is incorrect English!
  • Incorrect: You and me are going to school together.
  • Correct: You and I are going to school together.
Using the objective pronoun in a compound subject is considered grammatically incorrect. Also it is incorrect to to place the personal pronoun 1st. Correct grammatical usage would be;
  • Correct: my friends and I.
Ciao

Another fact, nobody cares that this is wrong english. He isn't like publishing a book or something. I am not trying to be rude or anything.
Nobody cares? Speak for yourself. I prefer proper grammar as well.
I like people like you. Many of the "teens" today often use short forms of words such as "u" instead of "you" or maybe even dis" instead of "this". I really want many teens to use proper grammer for educational purposes. Another fact is that there is spell check integrated into instructables text writer.

Git him
He was talking about grammar, not spelling! -PKT
My point exactly. No one types perfectly all the time. A small typo here and there. Really we were just talking about GRAMMAR. Are you happy F.V?
CLAPS!!!! oh that was beautiful

This is a very good idea! It's very well documented, and beats the crap out of most 1st I'bles I know! Nice job! Although I think you should build another I'ble where you show us how to use a sling?

P.S: I gave you 5 ***** ( 5 stars )
