A Rifle Sling can save your shoulder and you rifle

 

 

 

I’m sure that if you are like most hunters when it’s time to jump out of the truck and start your trek into the backcountry, you grab your rifle and throw it over your arm, shoulder or just let it hang at your side. After all, it’s so much easier to get it up to shooting position if you jump an animal. Whether you are out for a day hunt, or a week or more, you find that there are just so many ways you can carry that rifle, which has been getting heavier after each hour.

Then you might just glance over at your older hunting buddy and see that he has a sling on his rifle, and it’s been on his right shoulder all along. When you ask him about the sling later that night by the campfire, he will probably tell you how comfortable it is, and how quickly he can get it off the shoulder and in position for a shot.

The plain fact is that a sling isn’t just for hanging the rifle on your shoulder, but also if used properly, can assist you is stabilizing your rifle for that crucial shot. By learning how to wrap the sling around your arm, you can actually secure it for that off hand shot with accuracy. Ask anyone who has served in the military and they will tell you it’s one of the first thing that is taught on the rifle range.

Rifle slings come in many formats, from basic leather or nylon, to padded for your shoulder comfort. You can get them in camo and even with integrated ammo loops. Why take the risk of bumping your rifle on something in the field, or worse having a sore and over used arm that needs to be steady for that critical shot.
