    I've never paid much attention to slings...all my rifles have a normal, 2 point sling like my Dads, and my Grandads, and my great Grandads...

    Last year during deer season, a previous neck injury flared up and I think it was aggravated by packing a rifle around on one shoulder all day for days on end.

    A good friend of mine recently showed me his 3 point sling setup, and he has converted all his rifles to it. I was impressed with the options... some are shown here.

    Any of you have experience with a 3 point sling on your rifles?

    Where is the best 'VALUE' for a 3 point sling? I see them on the internet from $7-$66 each. Any suggestions welcome.

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Interesting suggestions and I appreciate the feedback.
    My main interest in the 3 point sling is two positions... The 'military patrol position' where I could carry the rifle muzzle down behind my right shoulder, slung diagonal like a guitar strap, yet ready to quickly deploy. The other one is the 'backpack' mode where the weight of the rifle would be borne by both shoulders on a long hike.
    From what I've seen, though, all the 3 point slings need some goofy strapping arrangement around the stock, if the weapon does not have a sideways sling loop built in. I'm not a big fan of that.
