    Rifle slings 101

    Watched this vid a few times over the past couple years and realized it might enlighten some folks. If youíre up in the air on a sling for your AR or other sport/defensive rifle, this guy shows some great basics and rationale.

    John Lovell is knowledgeable, but I personally don’t care for the way he slings his rifle. John’s sling setup is A way, not THE way. Slings are a personal thing. I avoid single point slings and prefer to set up my sling the way Mark does in the video below.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    Lol, awesome Gator. I still have the little plastic army men positioned like that.
    They didn’t use single point slings back then either. I never really thought much of them. I think the swat movies must have made them look tacticool or something cuz I notice a lot of guys prefer to hook them on the rear of the receiver and call it slung. I never really left the 2 point line of slinging my rifle. I have used a few and some have held up better than others. I still have a 5.11 and a Vickers that have been great for a lot of use.

    Btw, have you seen the pistol film from that series? It’s killer. 1911 goodness.

    How much for the better is hugely debatable... Necklace slings arenít my thing though.

    After much experimentation I have settled on a 2 point attached mid rail and the receiver end plate. It is a Vickers type I custom made with 2" webbing across my back and 1" webbing ends and sewn on QD swivels. I used an Alice pack quick adjust slide.
