The Slings (But Not Arrows) Of Outrageous Fortune by Robert Farago | Dec 02, 2011 | 3 comments facebook twitter linkedin email [HTML1] comments Tim says: December 2, 2011 at 10:24 It’s too early for a Hamlet reference! Reply Ralph says: December 2, 2011 at 11:40 I learned to shoot using a “hasty sling,” and can’t imagine shooting a WW2 battle rifle without one. Shooting with a sling seems to have been a bit neglected recently, but a good sling turns a shooter’s whole body into a more stable shooting platform.
