Hello,
French legislation is bad. I think I am outlaw when I sling.
Yet, I sling absolutely alone !

The legal grey area slings are in isn't good. I understand the argument that it's good it's ignored and goes under the radar but on the other hand it means I could be arrested just because the officer I encounter THINKS it's illegal. Of course, the same thing can happen when carrying legal knives and guns, but I think slings, because they are relatively unknown but can be quickly understood to be at least harmful, are more likely I would guess to gain the attention of someone that doesn't like the idea one bit.

I'm still not entirely sure on the legality of the sling in Finland. Timpa might be able to help with that. Most of the relevant laws haven't been translated into English.

Probably just that it's not widespread. It would be really cool if it was as big in the UK as in the Balearics and there were competitions and events for it.

Ammo- some perfect places don't have smooth slingable stones

On the legality of the sling: it's like the stick(unless there is special law regulating it) , it can be used in many ways walking stick / bo staff/ back scratcher, it's use is not regulated until you become violent with it, the grey area exists only in the minds of law enforcement officers or other paranoid citizens. You can't grow if you are afraid of everything.

The police officer can make your life miserable just because you spoke different language...

i agree with the frustration of not getting pin point accuracy  but i believe the objective is to get it as close as one can.  The bullseye is just for bragging rights ..there are no sights on a sling , so it is our body and mind doing their own thing ..at my age ( 74) i am happy that my body does anything .

Man kann richtig Zielen mit der sling. Ich habe es hier schon ein paar mal erklärt. 😁
Das Zielen funktioniert nur etwas anders.
