    ive tried a 3 point sling, and personally found it got in the way, ive since taken the sling completely off my 4595ts, but on my 4095ts i use a simple standard style Hogue ''no slip'' neoprene sling. nothing fancy, but its actually rather impressive in how it holds and works. picked it up on Ebay for like 30 bucks.
    i picked up another that my son uses on his 715t Mossy as well and he really likes it.

    I agree, the three point sling has the extra material (strap) that tends to get in the way.

    Single point slings are great for a very short time of use. A single point sling is a bit too restrictive on adjusting the position where it rests on the shoulder.

    I like two point slings best. It is as convenient as the single point sling but is more comfortable for for a longer period of time. The area where it rests on the shoulder allows for slight changes that the single point sling doesn't. Even a slight change in position makes it more comfortable.

    In my opinion, slings with a sewn in bungee are much more comfortable than slings without the bungee. Convertible single point to two point slings are nice but are an unnecessary luxury.

    I like the MS3, best of both worlds.

    I like a 6 foot long piece of paracord looped around the front of the stock and tied off with a square knot.

    I like my single point. Not sure what sort Not2Many used to give him the troubles but the one I use is very comfortable for extended periods of time. I like how it allows me to sling it low to my hip if I need to work with both hands, or up higher to my chest area in a "ready" position, for lack of a better term. I also like how it stays where I put it when I'm not shooting and doesn't hang up when I shoulder the weapon.

    the one i just ordered looks really comfortable and like you mentioned the single point offers better control of your rifle

    Woop! I guess I didn't express myself correctly. It's not that I have any problems with any particular sling. What I simply should have said is that I prefer 2 point slings over single point or 3 point slings.

    Sorry.

    USMC_VET, I bet you'll like that sewn in bungee in that sling you ordered. I find the slings with bungee's help a lot with comfort.

    Gotcha. Yeah on my longer hunting rifles and shotguns I prefer a 2 point, but on a short carbine like my 4095 I like the single point.
     
  10. May i trouble you for the make and model of the sling you use sir?

    It's just a Blackhawk Sportster single-point sling. I was able to use the stock sling loops that came with my 4095 but it also came with the universal single point adapter which I didn't like.
