I did but the issue I have is that I will not know the difference between a knowledgeable person doing a vid or some jackass who just sounds like he knows what he is talking about. That is why I reached our to the brothers of CalGuns.

Thank you.

what type of sling set up are you looking for? No offence, but you asked a very vague question.

zfields can set you straight and more - he can make you the sling you want. He did some custom 3 point slings for me based on another design that really turned out well and I highly recommend him for the purpose.

Also, just an observation, but if you need a video to use a sling, it's too complicated. Start simple and when you find you need something more, adapt it. There is a big difference between a sling designed primarily for carrying the weapon in a few different ways (some that look pretty silly) and a sling designed to steady your aim by providing another point to support the weapon while at the ready. The type of rifle, the type of shooting you do and where you shoot will help narrow down your choices.

How to use a military sling.

Mudville, an Appleseed shoot will teach you to use a USGI sling properly, as well as how to use your iron sights. Great training and pretty cheap too. Plus it's fun.
