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?
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 VCASIn Valor there is hope

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."When they kick out your front door, how you gonna come?

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.
