I have a big empty field next to my job, so I sling several times a week.

It may only be a few shots or an hour of slinging, but I sling pretty much daily. I live in the woods and have a pretty big stache of rocks I use for target slinging.

I was pretty good at slinging like 10 years ago.

I am there with Dan and Bill, pretty much every day. I may only sling a handfull of rocks or I might get locked into the "just one more" loop. Luckily I got 5 acres out in the sticks with alot of flint and river rock. If I aint pickin'em I'm flickin'em.

"Friendly fire" has a different meaning when you sling with a novice.&&&&And everything under the sun is in tune but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

Once a week I think, mostly in the weekends.

Once in a long while. I rarely have time to get out, and when I do it's for a run to stay in shape/wake me up. I might start slinging a bit more often, because I found a place to sling at within running distance. Otherwise I haven't done any slinging since 3 months ago when I was at Lake Tahoe (big lake on the CA/NV border, popular vacation hotspot).

I have railroad tracks across the street from home, with miles of woods in behind! I'm out there slinging almost every day, it's too easy not to!

I sling most every day, at least four days a week.  My job is next to an open field as well, and I try to sling a couple stones a day there.  On the weekends I explore different locations and have longer slinging sessions.

At least every weekday; there's a dry riverbed that I cross to get to work. I sling on the way back Cool

I used to sling on a daily basis, but since I've moved there hasn't been a lot of areas for me to sling except by a service road, but that area is very limited and I have to sling well close to the ground to prevent me from hitting a house or launching a stone into a highway.

Depends on the mood. Generally once every few months, and whether I can get ammo, I found a tree with some big green walnuts the other day, so I spent some time slinging a couple handfuls of those into the river next to campus.

It really depends on how much time I have. In summer I usually sling around 3 times a week, usually up to 2 hours. In autumn or spring on average once a week, depends on the amount of work I have. In winter the amount of work usually increases quite a lot and therefore I usually sling once a month.

at the moment - several times a week Smiley

It varies on what dogs I'm walking and how annoying they get when a sling is pulled out of my pocket.  Wink
