Outlaw Sling Review By Troy Adams

Quote:
Gary Matthews of Timber Butte Outdoors saw a need for a better rifle sling design, not just for those who carry heavy rifles, but for most any type of rifle or shotgun that uses a sling design for transport. Unlike me (the whiner), Gary (the innovator) decided to do something about it. He created a sling with double shoulder straps much like a backpack. His sling makes carrying a heavy rifle (or any slung shotgun or rifle) almost a non-issue. It distributes the weight over both shoulders instead of one, resulting in less fatigue on your upper body. Since it goes over both shoulders the rifle slipping off your shoulder is no longer a concern, as it is virtually “slip proof”. Read More...

Re: Outlaw Sling Review By Troy Adams

Troy,
Nice article, you made me laugh a couple of times while reading it. The Outlaw Sling is probably a good recommendation for backpack hunters like me. Specially for the times when we get to our honey holes where we already have camp set up, and are focused on hunting our sacred spots. Thanks for sharing. Do you know how much the Outlaw Sling weights?. Anyway, would be nice to read some more experiences with it from other members of this site.

HUAINAMACHERO, I do not know what the sling weighs, but it is very light weight and basically a non-factor even for a back pack wilderness hunter. It actually weighs less than a number of single shoulder slings I own.

I have been using the Outlaw sling this past season and love it. It functions just like a double shoulder sling that I rigged up 6 or 7 years ago for my own use. I posted a picture here on LRH back at that time.

You can buy the Outlaw sling here at the LongRangeHuntingGearShop.

I don't see how you can wear it with a pack.

I use an Eberlestock Gunslinger backpack, which has a fabulous built-in gun storage compartment.
