No, Acc should not reflect that, because the sling is hard to learn to use.

In my youth, I indulged in SCA and D&D, so I actually tried to acquire Bow and Sling skills. I became mediocre on the bow after diligent work, but the sling was bloody near impossible. Guns I picked up in boot camp, and while I never became an expert in their use, I could hit a target somewhat.

So I say that progression of the sling as a Hard skill, the bow as an Average skill, and the Gun as an Easy skill passes the Reality Check test.
