Don't they put it on their back just swing it around and have the pistol ready, their buddy already covering them? I have heard stories of 3-point slings and all their positives but I don't know - I've heard stories of "you can just attach them to a casualty and drag them out" but it wouldn't work that well, too slow and clumbsy.

Right now I'm back on the street and using a standard 870 with standard sling.

My personal CQB weapon is an AK47. I love using my sling like the guy in this video uses a two point sling.

Some times when I go hands on with my duty shotgun I will throw it on my back like the guy dose in the first part of this video. I know the gun is hard to employ after it is slung, but I just go to my handgun if I need a gun. Usually by the time I sling it I'm pretty sure I'm not in a shooting situation.

Although after applying an armbar on a guy two weeks ago I tried to throw it over my back and discovered someone had tightened the sling too tight. I had to maintain the armbar and pass the weapon to my cover officer.

For hunting I use 2 point rifle slings. For practical shooting (CQB) I use a single point rifle slings.

I have tried some of the 3 point rifle slings for shotgun, but never liked it. The guy I borrowed the sling from told me about all the configuration you can do with this sling, but all the configurations only got me confused. :?

When talking about slings for use in CQB, the single point rifle slings is the best slings in my opinion. It is simple and easy to use. :wink:

Kind regards, Dramatikk. :)

Some interesting sling manipulation videos. Even covers when transitioning, when going to prone, etc.

http://iccf.freeforums.org/proper-use-o ... g-t11.html "Basically it is an aid to accuracy that is useful in all but offhand firing. It essentially locks your arm in a stable ‘V’ to give a more solid rest to your firearm than you’d have otherwise. It allows the bones of your arm to support the rifle instead of relying on the muscles of the arm."

I'm only a fan of three of the ones you listed, Ryan. The off side, patrol ready and rear sling. I've used the climber's sling a few times, too.

The savvy sniper quad cobra dual qd an hk is hands down the best sling I've ever used.

I use a two point quick adjustment sling similar to the Vicker's Sling from Blue Force Gear or the VTAC Sling from Viking Tactics.

That was interesting. The additional video in queue was rather telling, however. I don't think the system is quite there, yet.

You might be right. But I think that it is a nice option combined with a single point sling

I would agree, sir. As the second video stated, for contractor or LE work, it might be very workable.
