How many of you use a sling while shooting? (The sling for accuracy, not carrying)
I recently bought a para chord sling off a member on another forum (he makes them, any configuration you want). I have it installed on my AR15 and have gotten great use out of it while target shooting. It's not that I had a slack grip but having the sling really locks it down and makes recoil and follow up shots that much easier.
I use slings on every rifle I shoot. I have a guy on the seacoast here that makes what ever I want. Awesome stuff.
Quality bridle leather rifle slings and Ching Slings
A rifle without a sling is like a pistol without a holster...Jeff Cooper
I have two Andy's Leather slings and they are of excellent quality. I also have a couple of Butler Creek quick adjust slings and they are excellent as well.
Unless shooting benchrest, you betcha.
a sling is a must on a rifle. my preference are the black nylon m16a1 and a2 slings they work very well and are easy to install and adjust quickly. i like the old ww2/korea era green canvas slings too.
Even from a shooting bench, unless the gun is in a Lead Sled or similar, I ALWAYS use a sling. A well adjusted sling (I like them just a touch overly tight) will just about allow you to hold a rifle with just your off hand and someone else could pull the trigger for you. <don't try this with something with a lot of recoil!>
Seriously? People always look at me like I'm crazy when I bring a sling shooting. I guess this is why I like this forum so much.
Why be normal?
Do what you like as long as it isn't illegal or hurts someone.
I need to buy some slings.
You can just use a BDU belt or a leather strap if you want, Shihan. They both get the job done and get your groups a lot tighter.
I think the ol' M1907 leather sling is the greatest
I bought a 1907 M96 swede. It had missmatched (1digit) bands. They came down on price. Had an original Hoyt 1907 sling in great shape, worth $75.00 to 100.00. Hoyt was made in Manchester NH, about 3 miles from home.
I'm sure Shi has a bunch of leather straps laying around.
