Paracord Sling

Post by 8ptbuk » Sun Dec 09, 2018 12:57 pm

After taking a NASTY fall in October I decided to build a sling that I liked and would use. I have tons of slings for all my rifles but just didn't like how they felt on My 380, Most of My rifle slings are too short when I put it across both shoulders which is where I want it crossing rivers or traveling up or down steep inclines, With it across both shoulders I have both hands ready to catch Myself if I fall. Here's what I came up with made out of 550 paracord. Extremely Heavy Duty and matches my 380 very well.

I think there could be a demand for those!! :D
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

Very nice. Does it stretch a bit to absorb some of the bounce shock on the old collar bones?

Thank you, It does seem too. It sits really good on the shoulder while wearing a backpack which is very important to me. I hate to continually fight to keep my sling where it should be !

Thanks. I had to replace the sling clips with paracord as they were too noisy for walk and stalking. Plus the paracord allowed a little stretch to absorb the jolts. If you ever decide to sell them, shoot me a p.m. Regards,
