The Sling Fired Further Than a Bow, But It Also Had Its Drawbacks

If you were to name historical weapons, only few would think the sling. It's perhaps the most underrated weapon in history. People are not really frightened by the thought of a fork, whereby a stretched piece of flexible material is between its arms and a stone that is aimed at the target. Slings changed over time; it wasn't always a boy's toy used for knocking cans off windowsills. The throwing form of the sling didn't need flexible material. Such a sling entwined with rope or leather straps was no less destructive in its power than its modern form.

Sligshots and Slings

The slingshot is often called spin, but it is not identical to the real spin, an ancient weapon. After biblical traditions David defeated the giant Goliath with a slingshot, not with a slingshot.Today, it is very popular among children and adolescents, to build slingshots himself. Main piece is as symmetrical as possible fork. The best are the branches to each other at an angle between 40 ° and 60 °. Particularly suitable are forked branches of the hazel bush, the beech and the oak because the wood of these plants is firm but not brittle.

The sling is one of the first projectile weapons. Its production is not complicated. It has been used since prehistoric times. Little boys are able to make a catapult themselves. Human strength is used during shooting a catapult. The sling shoots a projectile using tightened rubber strips. The sling shoots using a centrifugal force.

A sling is a projectile weapon typically used to throw a blunt projectile such as a stone, clay, or lead "sling-bullet". It is also known as the shepherd's sling. A sling has a small cradle or pouch in the middle of two lengths of cord. The sling stone is placed in the pouch.

Shooting the sling is not quite that easy. First a stone is placed in the pouch of the sling. Then the middle finger is placed through the loop, the other string has a tab that is placed between the thumb and forefinger. Then the sling is swung and one string is released at the right moment. Both types of projectile weapons used the natural elasticity of the material from which they are made.
