    in my country (Greece), they are legal to buy and shoot in private property, or away from people (woods), but not to carry in public.Also, hunting with slingshots is illegal.Most anti-slingshot laws passed in Europe after some protestors started using them to smash riot police equipment.That is also the reason why arm rests are illegal almost anywhere.

    The reason slingshots are illegal to hunt with in some countries is that they are silent weapons, that in the hands of an expert,can be used very effectively for poaching.That is the same reason airguns are not allowed for hunting in my country and many others.
