    Let's talk slings (AGAIN)

    Looking for a single point sling for my evil black rifle (that I may or may not have).

    Bought a 2 point sling on Amazon and it wasn't what I was looking for (I'll use it on another gun). It was cheap so I got what I paid for. Decided I wanted to go with a single point with some type of quick release.

    Looking to spend $30-45. Any suggestions welcome.

    Appreciate the help.

    You should be able to find an illegal to carry your evil black rifle (that you may or may not have) for waaaaaaay less than $30-40 (600 to 900 Pesos)

    Try to find a sling that floats so you don't lose the rifle again.

    After doing quite a bit of research I think that will suit me best. I don't have a lot of experience with them since before I got the evil black rifle (that I may or may not have) I only had a shotgun.

    Kindly keep us posted on this issue. I would like a simple sling for my shotgun. I liked the one that Michael Douglas toted in Romancing the Stone. He carried it upside down over his right shoulder and just flip it up to shoot bad guys. Walking the streets in a end of the world scenario think a person would look less threatening to have a long gun over the shoulder than holding it in the hand. Not at tiring eiher most likely.

    Unless you are going to be doing a lot of foot patrolling through varied terrain while wearing 70+ pounds of other gear, all you need is a plain old GI web sling.
    Properly adjusted you can carry your rifle and immediately transition into what the Army calls the Combat Sling.
    Find an old soldier, and ask him to show you. Heck, there is probably youtubes on the subject.

    You can even use this to African Carry.

    I prefer the WWII OD Green cotton web slings for the Garand and 1903A3, but they're almost gone now. The link above is for the same type sling.

    Wearing the weapon on your weak side, hanging upside down under your arm, with one hand on the weapon is known as African Carry. You can instantly mount it to your other shoulder while simultaneously grasping the stock's wrist with your shooting hand.
    Is this what you're thinking of?

    Please let me know the pros or cons of carrying with a single point. Like I said I'm new to this so any info you're willing to share is appreciated.
