    Slings!

    Alright gents, slings: What are we all using?


    1 point? 2 point? 3 point?

    I'm using a Husky Amentum, a quick adjust 2 point wonder. It's got an easy loop for adjusting, and coupled with an angled foregrip, its given me the most stable standing/kneeling shooting positions I've had. It lets me carry my weapon in a comfortable position, where as 1 and 3 points are always hitting me in the damn knees. Plus, with 3 points I'm always getting the sling caught up in ****, or its too loose/too tight, and just have never generally liked them.

    I like 1 points for ease of use, but they dangle too much for my taste. This quick adjust 2 point lets me carry the rifle across my body and out of the way of my knees, while allowing me quick access to it.


    I like this one, but I'm curious to see everyone's opinions/what they use.

    That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

    I used a wolf hook while deployed. But while training I always use a single point bungee. The three points just move around too much for me - I like the "feel" of them but they are a pain in the ass to put on and adjust correctly.

    When I dig my wolf hook out of a box someplace I will be using it again.

    I used a wolf hook last deployment too. I also had a Mamba (3 point) I actually liked that when we were in the mountains because I didn't have to worry about my weapon dangling and hitting **** when I had to climb. I used the wolf hook the rest of the time.

    Single points are the best for maneuvering and shooting from awkward positions, but I prefer 3 point slings. I don't like the dangling with a single point sling and I don't like my muzzle sticking in the dirt if I want to take a knee while I'm using my sidearm.

    I've always used a 2 point sling that I constructed myself out of a standard M4 sling. I made harness points out of 4 or 5 loops of gutted 550, bowline knots, and gorilla tape. The 550 brings the sling away from the weapon, but attaches where I want it to (the same places that the husky one 3moose1 linked to). Some of the AFO guys I used to work with showed me how to rig it up. By the end of my last deployment, most of my teammates had made their own versions of my sling. It's pretty much the ****.

    Can anyone give me advice as to how I might get a Vietnam War era sling for my AR?

    That should be at pretty much any surplus store out there.
    It should be the same 2 point slings that most units use now.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll have to call the handful of stores in town...I really want to complete the look of my handguards.

    Dammit. I thought this was a thread about tossing smooth rocks really fast with strips of leather.

    I don't have much experience with slings, but I've always hated the 3 points I've been issued. **** got tangled, couldn't get it adjusted, etc.

    One points aren't bad, I've got a decent one but I'm also a lazy bitch so if i'm not holding it, i hate how that dirty slut smacks my knees like a pimp.

    I'm loving quick adjust 2 points. Especially that amentum. That thing is the ****, lets you sling it easily, yet still bring it up in a good shooting position on the fly.

    our BN Gunner is ordering slings/angled foregrips for the BN. Supposedly. (and we're also all going to jump school!)
