Timpa knows a bit about Finnish slings I believe. At least "linko", the Finnish word for sling, turns up in a lot of place names and surnames. Not much is really known about the use of the sling in Finland but the word crops up a lot so I think it would be fair to say that it must have been pretty commonplace.

Hello from Alabama. 

As you have noticed, this is an international forum.  Pictures of your slinging adventures are welcome if you would like to post them.
