    "He put it in his sling ..."?

    "Goliath came near to attack David. And David ran quickly to meet Goliath. David took out a stone from his bag. He put it in his sling and swung it around. The stone flew from the sling and hit Goliath in the forehead. The stone sank deep into his head, and Goliath fell to the ground face-down."

    I used to use a different kind/type when I was a farmer many years ago to protect crops from birds. Is this the shape-like sling the text talks about, please?
