well it will have been used, but like the uk, it probably died out in the middle ages. Unless it's something of a national speciality - like the balearic islands or guam. Sling usage tended to disappear when bows became popular.

It seems to me that Sling-use was more popular in Andalusian Spain than it was in Portugal during the Middle ages, though I wouldn't be surprised if they were used from time-to-time.
