   On another note, how viable a survival weapon a sling is can depend on where you live.  I have mentioned many times that southern New Jersey is alluvial.  During the last Ice Age the glaciers made it only as far south as north and central New Jersey.  As the glaciers retreated much of this area was under water. Consequently there are many perfect, oval shaped white river stones all over the place.  They make very accurate projectiles.  The sling would be a much more useful survival tool here than in the mountains where there's nothing but broken shale to sling.

I agree that makes a huge difference.
