WTS: "Tactical" Paracord Rock Slings For Your BOB- QUANTITY DISCOUNT ADDED

IMGP0263

IMGP0262

IMGP0280

QUANTITY DISCOUNT ADDED

Well, decided to start making a few more of these- woven SINGLE PIECE rock slings made with Coyote 550 cord, sling arms 33" long (can be shortened by the end user if desired). With practice, can sling a 1 oz lead egg fishing sinker over 300 yards! Great addition to your go bag, cordage and a food getter all in one!

Why "tactical" you ask? Because Coyote Brown makes everything tactical, doncha know!

Make use of any rock up to golfball size, never be without a means of hunting small game. Wrap around your belt, coil it in your pocket, this can be with you everywhere you go in the wilderness! Will not rip, or come undone, thanks to the single piece construction (far more time consuming to make).

These are handmade, and I am asking $22 bucks + $2 for shipping anywhere in CONUS 1st class postage (basically just barely covering my time and materials). Buy 3 and the price drops to $19 each plus $3.50 shipping. Buy 5 and get them for $17 each plus $5 shipping. Want 10? $15 each and $7.20 shipping!

I accept cash, US postal money orders, and personal check if I have dealt with you before.

A GOOD VIDEO SHOWING HOW THEY ARE USED:

WILL TRADE FOR CASH + GEN3 MAGPUL PMAGS.

Thanks for adding that clarification. For a moment there I was trying to figure our who made the Rock Rifle and how that little sling would fit someone's shoulder.

I was pretty good with a wrist rocket, but could never hit chit with one of these. I had a friend back in South Africa that was pretty awesome with one, he could launch a tennis ball sized rock at amazing velocity, and hit a tree at 100 yards 9 out of 10 times.

The key is finding the throw that works best for you. There are more than a dozen ways to throw with these, and the trick is picking one that is natural. I took a person that had never seen one before and had them hitting a milk jug at 50 feet 4 times out of 10 in less than an hour.

Romans used these for centuries as softening up weapons. Imagine 5000 pieces of 1 0z lead airborne, every 5 seconds for an hour. Close range have knockdown of low velocity 45.

Been play'in with these for many years. And I have one of 009.5's copies. Excellent quality kit, and overall just a lot of fun to use. The practice required to get consistent hits will surprise you.

... So I had some left over cord and put one of these together.... My advice: buy one of these. The time and effort to make it tight and together, building a knotting frame, a sh*t ton of chord, and a good amount of time... Buy one of 009.5's... They're fun though, just don't "learn" around anything breakable.
