I like the single point slings. You can get a clamp on bracket or remove the backplane.

I like 2 point slings so you can run with the rifle and it won't smack you in the nuts. You can also use the two point to steady the rifle when shooting, which you can't do with a single point.

I actually run the magpul sling that goes from single to double . For what we do single gets the job done.

No rabbits to be found. Tons of coyote droppings that consisted of nothing but rabbit fur so that mystery is solved.

Shotgun works great too! Ultimate brush gun for sure. It's compact... easy to maneuver... it also works great for holding it out in front of you to plow through dense brush. What am I gonna do? Scratch it?
