The only other suggestion I have is that once everything is all cinched up on the sling there is quite a bit of the adjustment straps left over. They tend to flap around a lot in the wind. Now, in areas where wind is not common, this would be of no concern. I live in “wind-central” so it is definitely a factor for me. I think either a belt loop to secure them or Velcro tags to pin them down would be useful. But that’s a small complaint and one I could easily remedy with a quick trip to Walmart to buy some stick-on Velcro patches myself.

Overall, it is a great sling design. There are a number of really useful options that can be added as well. One is the quick release buckles. With these, the rifle can be switched to a single shoulder sling for those quick, off-the-shoulder shots. Another nice option is that you can add up to eight shell loops to the front of the sling. This way you always have ammunition handy should the need to reload quickly come into play. Plus, it is a great way to carry your extra ammunition in a silent manner.
The extra loops are not limited to just ammunition. You can also order loops to use for holding predator or other wildlife hand calls. A couple other options that are available are D-rings and Molle’ loops. So there is no shortage of options, and this clearly shows that Gary is very innovative and is always thinking of ways to improve his sling. The fact that he has already addressed those two earlier concerns I mentioned shows he is also willing to listen to his customers and make improvements. Way to go, Gary!
The Outlaw Sling is one of those products that once you use it, you really wonder how you ever got along without it. My only regret with this sling is that it I didn’t have one years ago.
