[PF-1e] Halfling Sling Staff and Weapon Training

Came across an interesting question which, in my mind, seems to be correct but I wanted to double check.

Weapon TrainingStarting at 5th level, a fighter can select one group of weapons, as noted below. Whenever he attacks with a weapon from this group, he gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls.

Every four levels thereafter (9th*, 13th, and 17th), a fighter becomes further trained in another group of weapons. He gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls when using a weapon from this group.


Halfling Sling StaffMade from a specially designed sling attached to a short club, a halfling sling staff can be used by a proficient wielder to devastating effect.

Your Strength modifier applies to damage rolls when you use a halfling sling staff just as it does for thrown weapons. You can fire, but not load, a halfling sling staff with one hand. You can hurl ordinary stones with a halfling sling staff, but stones are not as dense or as round as bullets. Thus, such an attack deals damage as if the weapon were designed for a creature one size category smaller than you and you take a 1 penalty on attack rolls. A halfling sling staff can be used as a simple weapon that deals bludgeoning damage equal to that of a club of its size.


So, if a fighter has weapon training in the Thrown category and is wielding a halfling sling staff, it appears if he uses it as a club the weapon training bonus still takes effect. This saves him from having to burn another weapon training for Hammers. Does this seem correct?

This sounds correct to me. It doesn't matter how you're using the weapon, so long as you have training in that weapon. This is backed up by the following text from Weapon Training:

Totally forgot about that part! Makes perfect sense, thank you. I am really curious about running a sling staff build at some point, so I'm ironing out the details.
