Sups,

So I recently purchased Tapco Intrafuse stock for my 1022 and enjoy the comfort of the Saw style grip. Now I am thinking of using one point sling for plinking in the national forests. Sometimes I feel too lazy to lay something on the ground and put all guns down, so I just open the trunk and shoot while standing next to the car. This is not too practical since I can scratch something while putting the gun back every time. So maybe its better to just let it hang while I reload mags? Your thoughts? Experience?

Who cares? Tacticool isnt a negative, it's just a description. A sling is a good idea for any long term carry in the wilderness.

You need a truck, tailgates make the ultimate shooting bench.

and the ultimate gas guzzling, HIGHLY impractical daily commuter.

20 mpg is gas guzzling? Sounds like your commuter car might be HIGHLY impractical for National Forest recreation.

My trucks usefulness outweighs its ultimate gas guzzling- and highly impractical daily commuter-ness.

Oh yeah, I get 18mpg too in a truck that weighs almost 8k lbs

My car gets 35 mpg highway and the national forests got more than enough asphalt in them. As for usefulness, I have no real use for it.

It's not Mall Ninja if you do it for a reason. Just keep in mind that single-point slings usually orient the muzzle of the rifle at your feet. Not saying that it's foolish to do it, but just be aware that you are sweeping yourself with a potentially loaded firearm.

I have noticed that too....
