I couldn't find too much specific information on bolt-gun slings. I have a remington 700 and I am really liking this sling:

I like the brown 1.25" sewn leather for $40.95 including swivels. I use my rifle just for target shooting and an occasional camping trip out to the desert.

Can you list other suggestions?

I use a TIS Quick Cuff - none better.

I'd say TIS, support a CA company and it's a great product.

Another +1 to the TIS quick cuff. I have two of them and will get more. :)

I prefer Turner Saddlery followed by TAB.

Many like the TIS.

Another vote for the TIS Quick-Cuff slings. I've got several of the Quick-Cuff 2 slings and they are outstanding in every way.

I've also heard that the TAB slings are very good.

I use the TIS Quick-Cuff. Excellent sling for shooting in field positions. I've also heard great things about the TAB sling.

A lot of us up here run TAB or TIS.

what is the advantage to using something like the TIS over a normal "carry strap" using a hasty sling approach? how user friendly are the TIS one during a normal COF?

Another for the TIS (top notch slings)! Once you go black (or OD), you'll never go back :D

Hey swerv,

Next time you are out have one of the guys show you how to sling up. Being able to use a sling pays during barricade and positional shooting stages.

Both the TAB and TIS slings are meant to be quicker, easier to use, modern versions of the 1903 sling.

Both the TAB and TIS slings are user friendly. The TAB and TIS Slip cuff are very similar in operation in that they "slip" over the arm and then you cinch them up snug. The TIS Quick Cuff has an arm loop (the Cuff) that stays on the arm and it and the sling have a quick connect clip.

If you have more than 30 seconds prep time the TAB and the TIS Slip cuff can be put in place fairly quickly.

If you have to get the sling on "right now" and be in position the Quick Cuff has the advantage because the Cuff is always on the arm in position. All you do is clip the sling to it and you're ready to go.

Here's a good pic of our own David Kerley with the TAB sling in the proper position, high up on the arm with the sling parallel to the rifle.

Here's a pic of our own Francis K (not sure if TAB or TIS), again with the sling in proper position high on the arm, parallel to the rifle. Also, take note of the correct position of Francis' left arm, with the back of the elbow in front of the knee, for maximum stability.

Between Francis and David is John K - his sling is in a poor position on the arm. It's down too low and that makes it subject to pulse bounce.

Here's our Nick Y using a 1903 type leather sling in the correct position.

Here's 2 more.

The first just because it's a cool shirt.

The second, because it's an even cooler shirt with our club's logo on it :)

The TIS is a good sling. I have been using one now for about 4 years.
