    Gun Sling preference

    What do you guys use for a gun Sling? Was looking a new packs and also weighing the benefits of how they carry a rifle. From Eberlstocks gun scabbard to the Kifaru, Stone Glacier concepts. Wondering if anyone has tried different methods and can advise.

    Ive always used the butler creek slings, I think pretty highly of them. Curious as to what everyone else likes.

    I was looking more at the gun bearer systems that have a cradle to attach the gun to your pack with a quick release strap. When I have tried to use a normal rifle sling it just seems to slip off my shoulder of fatigue it. Both Kifaru and Stone Glacier make a system that hooks to the pack frame.

    I like the gun hook granted I'm biased , but simple and effective is good.

    I prefer the brownells Latigo style sling (or my own version made from webbing) carried on a gunhook.

    The gunhook carries all the weight of the rifle on the frame of the pack, while still maintaining extremely fast access. An optional buttstock strap gives total rifle control.

    X2 I have the claw slings on all my guns. They never slip.

    The Claw is the real deal.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    The claw is the only sling I use anymore and if I'm not using that I sport a Kifaru gunbearer!
