The Afghan Sling

Photo by @andrewquilty for @burndiary. The Afghan Sling. 29.1.2014. I haven’t met an Afghan boy who isn’t deadly with one of these. Here, they call them “Palaghman” – that’s as good as I can do with a phonetic translation anyway. I couldn’t resist buying one myself the other day and have so far managed to narrowly escape causing myself serious injury. I’m therefore always more than happy to give the little masters themselves a go, and invariably their skills are sounded with the whip-like “CRACK”! as their little missile is released into the air.#sling #slingshot #weapon #boy #afghanistan #kabul #whip
