How, Where, and How Often do you carry a Sling?
Nov 10th, 2011 at 10:20am
 
  During the work week I usually carry 4.  2 of my woven ones because I stretch and work them while working at my desk.  Gutted woven paracord might be a little tight here, a little loose there,  I don't always get to shoot each one in so I manually "set" them.  And, some of my customers want to be the first one to throw with it.  I carry 2 of my Apache styles in my little ruck sack (I walk to work) in the side pockets with stones already in the pouches and layered so I can just pull them out. 

  When I'm hiking (Arizona desert) I keep a woven one at hand usually in the side pocket of the ruck and I use another for a belt.  I keep 5 stones on me always in the ruck.  If I'm out shopping I keep an Apache style wound around a stone in my pocket.

  How do you carry?

Right now I am slingless, due to not finding a decent set up where I can braid one (I hang the finger loop and braid down, and currently lack something to hang it on. Normally, I bring slings to go slinging, and carry one with me whenever I plan to socialize with anyone I know who also slings, or am likely to be waiting in a large open place for some time.

I walk my Huskies twice a day.  That's when I do my slinging.  Also, if I'm going to be outdoors for a while for any reason, fishing, camping, whatever, I carry a coulpe of slings.  I usually carry at least two, one big and one small.  They can be any style, TS3, rockman, pj, seven strand, tape pouch, Apache,  seatbelt, Aussie pouch, etc..  Often, when I have the Kali Bag (back pack with mostly dog stuff) I carry a bag of extra slings that I made to give away  to the neighborhood kids.

As a newbie to this whole slinging thing I don't yet carry a sling with me every where i go but i do carry quite a few meters of paracord ! I plan to once i have enough skills to throw rocks safely until then I'll leave the tennis balls at home.
Aussie is sending me one, thanks again mate, and i will carry that with me all the time i think. Along with the stones once I'm no longer a danger to myself and anyone standing behind me.

Almost always. Some places it may be seen as anti-social. But there's always at least one in the car.

Keep my 24" sling in my right front pocket, it' the only sling I use anymore. If I ever find some stones on the ground and they look like they are out of place I, uh... put them somewhere else Roll Eyes

It's not always in the front pocket, If I'm not taking my wallet I put it in my back pocket, If my pants don't fit right I use it as a belt, and sometimes I wear it as a wristband. But I almost never carry 2 slings, but I never leave my house without a sling.

(Honestly, I've brought my sling to weddings and other formal occasions.)

It's bow season here.  I carry a sling wrapped around my quiver and five fired clay shot in the bottom of my quiver.  I have thrown all five at a squirrel on a couple of occasions when I was leaving the woods in the morning.

Bow season here too, but I hunt with a compound bow, no place to put shot on my bow-mounted quiver.
I should get into traditional archery someday.

Crow Hat I know what you mean sometimes that rock would just look better way over there.

It's bow season here too, my first, hunting with an osage short bow doesn't allow for a whole lot of variables learned a ton though. Unfortunately they really screwed up here in PA cause the peak of the rut is the last day of buck/doe archery and then the next week is just doe and then it's deer armegedon when rifle season comes around after Thanksgiving. But by the time rifle actually comes the rut will be dieng down. During this time of year the deer are moving more but are less consistent so finding them is ususally the tough part. I ususally either stalk or sit in a ground blind between a corn field and their bedding and on weds I saw 7-8 deer several of which were bucks but they were out of range for my my primitve bow, so I set up a ground blind in the same spot they were yesterday and nothing.

I used to carry 2 slings, one small and one large, but then I just figured I could just make a medim size sling and carry that, so that's what I do. 26in thick cords medium/large leather pouch big enough for tennis balls. I carry it hunting too but just haven't had tome to hunt small game too. And I ususally carry it in my left cargo pocket or if I am wearing jeans then my back pocket.

Usually I get to go to sway straps, and a bag with me when I plan to socialize with someone I know who also slings, or that I'll probably be waiting in a large open space at any time.
