    I am a huge advocate for slings. i think they are great. very cheap to make, fun practical and did i say cheap? anyway, its cool to use to throw a tennis ball for your dog. or to use to throw a stone 1/3 of a mile. and yes that is pretty realistic depending on the sling length and the weight of the gland(projectile in a sling) some nice paracord or nylon bootlaces are awesome to use for the strings. check out slinging.org. there are some awesome threads on the forum, pics, and instruct-ables.

    What's the reason why you're wearing a helmet ? Protecting your hands while piercing the leather. Open flame of the lighter ? Sucks.
