Default Sling Question?

Years ago in high school on the rifle team we used a sling that attached to the sling stud on the foregrip. The other end had a loop that went around the left arm, for a right handed shooter. That sling made a world of difference in accuracy. Lately I've been thinking about that and working on my technique using a regular sling but it's just not the same. So my question is does anyone know of a good carrying sling that easily converts to a shooting sling?

My favorite is the old military M1907 sling...

My favorite is the claw. I have the sling sticks set but it has enough flexibility in the strap to use it like you mentioned I practice my standing shots that way

Here are a few sites showing how to use a military web sling.
If you use these slings they require 1 1/2 inch swivils
