    Posted this in General Discussion but figured it might be more appropriate in here....

    I need one that will be decent for sling shooting, but just as important if not more, one that will aid in carrying in Colorado for Elk this fall/winter, needs to be comfy.

    Let me add I tried a old leather sling off my dads 20 year old 700 BDL and it sucked.

    I will be taking a Sendero SF with attached bipod and SS 10X42 ontop. I'll probably get more than 1 to accomodate my VLS which weighs in at .5 lb more.

    open to suggestions..Please post website if possible.

    any good ones at http://www.copsplus.com/prodnum3533.php from the Blackhawk line?

    Im ordering some cheek pads from them for the AR and the 870, just curious. It would be nice if they had one so I could order it all together.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Mike Miller at Tactical Intervention makes a good sling. You can find him over at Sniper's Hide.

    I think Galco's Ching-Sling and new Safari Ching-Sling are pretty tough to beat for hunting. I have one of the TIS slings. Its a well-made piece of gear, but I much prefer my Ching-Sling for hunting. Its less bulky and faster into position.
