Slings & Things: SERVICE RIFLE SLINGS

SLINGS

If you’re going to be a Service Rifle shooter, you best be for learning all about this contraption. Most of us choose a 1907-style leather sling, and its use confounds even long-time shooters sometimes. Learning to get it working like it can (which is really, really well) is a huge boost up for anyone running a smoke pole.

S&T contains one full segment on materials and configuration options allowable by CMP and NRA for competition. Leather, synthetic, and both web style slings are detailed and disassembled. It’s brand-specific, too. There are no bad slings in this book! Learn how to know the difference, and which to purchase.

Of course, I have my favorite...

HERE'S SOMETHING...
If what you want to know is EVERYTHING about Service Rifle Slings, this might be exactly what you're looking for...

...and that's because that's all this is, but that's a lot. Click HERE or on the cover image above to see more about this new specialty publication.


SERVICE RIFLE
I spent the most time and pages, and photos, on this portion of the "slings" part of the book. So many shooters are confounded by Service Rifle sling use, and this book should put an end to that once and for all. I've used every conceivable means, and sling, over a lot of years, and talked over the topic many times with many outstanding Service Rifle champions. It's all in here.


Complete information on allowable slings. Pros and cons, construction, materials, keepers, and webs. Function -- tension and positioning, plus detailed mechanics of sling use, that work.
Detailed, step-by step assembly guide for proven winning hook-up methods, plus variations and assembly tricks (no-pulse included). Dozens of large, crystal-clear photos, and can't miss instructions to go with them.
After it's all together, there is page after page showing the correct way to get into this contraption, get it adjusted, get it tight, and keep it where it belongs. There are a couple of tricks you don't want to miss.
Additional segments in Slings & Things talk specifically about the needs of the Service Rifle shooter, where there's a difference or option. There was a lot to say. Specifically, there's a lot about different approaches in the mechanics of hand positioning and sling tension for sitting and prone, and a whopping lot on choosing a glove that will help keep the hand in place along the forend.
I even talk about this! Coat construction can matter too...
