550 cord sling
My wife helped a lot with our first attempt at a sling. We made it little small and with just some key chain rings. Its gonna work good as a single point for my hunting rifle. I got motivated and did a little digging around yesterday. I measured one of my leather slings, got a set of sling swivels, and got to work. This is what I made last night and this morning. Did just black for the inner layer. Then did coyote and black for the outer layer. I was thrilled with how it came out. Notice the difference in design from front to back. I stuck to the rule of thumb for 1inch of stitch use 1 ft of cord. It was enough and not to much extra. Now to get a rifle to put it on.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
