    A sling in the proper hands was a very effective weapon back in the day.

    The Greeks and Romans had troops armed with slings as part of their armies. They could range up to 400 meters.

    Slings were used for hunting and even in warfare (Spain and Portugal) well into the medieval ear.

    If David knew what he was doing, taking down Goliath with a sling wouldn't have been that much of a challenge.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
