How to Make and Use a Good Sling

This is the way the boy of Bible times made his sling, and you can make one in the same manner. Get a piece of buckskin, or any other kind of strong, soft leather will do, and make it 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 inches long, cutting slits in the middle as shown at A in Fig. 4.

Next cut two strips of the same kind of leather 2 feet long and make each strip 2^ inches wide at one end and tapering to 1 inch wide at the other end. Beginning about 6 inches from the wide end, cut two slits into the strip as shown at B. Now braid the ends of these strips and sew the wide end of each one to one of the ends of the short leather with waxed thread. This done, make a loop of one of the braided ends as shown at C, and your slingŁ is done.

To use the sling place a round pebble weighing a couple of ounces in the slit leather, hook your little finger into the loop, and grasp the other end between your index finger and thumb. Then whirl the sling round in a circle a few times until it has gathered the needed momentum and suddenly letting go the free end the stone will be thrown with great force and as straight as a die if you use it well.

Collins, A. Frederick. Shooting, for Boys,. New York: Moffat, Yard and, 1917. Print.
