    Best sling for ar15

    What is the best sling for an ar15?

    I am currently assigned to patrol, so I will be wearing a vest, badge, nameplate, etc.(don't what it getting hung on anything)

    Also, in the event of my trigger finger being shot off at the wrist, I will need something that I can easily move to the shoulder.

    2 point or 3 point?

    Which brands/models?

    Thanks for all input, in advance.

    i use single point. blue force gear and the SKD pig are both great options. if you want two point i would probably going with the VCAS

    ^^ This... so you don't have to choose. I run it 1 point with an ambidextrous mount on the rear.

    And an attachment point on the rail...

    2 point. Blue Force Gear Vickers VCAS. Don't even consider a 3 point. Single point slings are very limited in practical purposes, especially in how they might be used in patrol.

    Leave it to Wal-Mart:

    I first ran across these because Black Rain Ordinance ships them with their rifles, or you could buy them for $40 from them. The entire band is a thick elastic that has a nice flex to it. The wider band distributes the pressure nicely as well. Easy to put on and quick release as well.

    I prefer the padded Vickers Combat Application Sling (VCAS).

    +1 for the Blue Force Gear Vickers (VCAS) two-point Sling. I like the Burnsed loop attachment at the back of the receiver, and with QD attachments and with a Tri-Glide (available from Blue Force Gear) you can convert the sling to single point.

    lyVTAC for me for the past several years. I have also done some finger f*cking of the the Specter Gear 2 point. I really dig it, but I have not unsed it operationally, so take that w/ a grain of salt. It is wider than most slings and would likely be more comfrortable if worn over a long period.
