    I use a Tucker & Byrd leather sling, well padded and high quality leather with a thumbhole in just the right spot for comfortable carry all day. Not my duty sling which is a Blueforce Vicker's padded for both AR's and long range rifles.

    Specialty outdoor products. This sling has some stretch and is a rubber compound that does not slip.

    I 2nd the Ferro Concepts Slingsters. Best I have found to date, comfortable, easily adjusted from most any position. Only sling I use these days.

    I really like the Turner saddlery GP biothane sling for a simple light weight hunting sling. It is very well-made with excellent hardware. I own several of the others mentioned above, and use some of them on heavier rifles, but for a hunting rifle the Turners get used the most.

    Had to edit couple times but Slogan outdoor sling is the one I bought. Couple copies on the market. I had to go back and look at paper work. Anyway

    Any way, Pretty sure this is the guy I bought one 20 years ago but last year I bought a second and it looked basically the same.
    Anyhow. 20 years later and this sling has been all over North America and is the only one I use. Really a good product.

    Give Viking Tactical sling a look.
    I took the shooting course with Robb Wiley at Non-Typical outfitters 2 years ago and that is what he was using on his own rifles. Side mounted flush cups were also used and promoted in that course.
    I now have side mount flush cups on my rifles and use that sling, That combination flat out works!!

    Slogan was the other sling, at least it was very similar. Awesome sling.

    I purchased a "Slogan Outdoors" sling last year, its one of the "thermoplastic" rubber ones... super nice. Holds tight to your shoulder and claims are that that particular compound will not dry out or crack. It's basically the same as the "Ultimate Gun Sling"

    I like the quake claw on normal swivels. I’m building a rifle with side flush cups now and plan to get another claw for that rifle.

    Edited... I realized that I too use a Slogan. Won't leave home without it.

    You have two on there. Are both for the same reason?
