The Bunker Gun Shop INC carries a variety of slings

Choosing the Right Rifle Sling :

  • There are three basic types of slings: shooting slings, carry slings and tactical slings

  • Tactical slings, most relevant to the AR, fall into three categories: single-point, two-point and three-point

  • Single-point slings offer hands-free operation, quick transitions to the secondary weapon and rapid on/off attachment, but also have disadvantages

  • The author feels the two-point is the most versatile option, while the three-point can become cumbersome

There are a variety of slings, and while it may seem simple, choosing the right sling can get complicated. Application and personal preference determine what sling is best for you. Also, keep in mind that you can always swap this gear, changing it out to fit what you are doing.
