I like three-point slings based on my experience with my .223 LAR, and the POF already had attachment points at the front and back. I wanted to stay within my comfort zone.

Because 3-point slings are the best for quick acquisition, ease of carry and hell CQB, although the last one isn't what Rob is looking for, lol........

Looks great Rob, glad you took my advice, that thing is a tack driver for sure and is gonna be a great platform for you for hunting!

I don't like 3 point slings. Just my opinion though. Off hand transitions suck with them (again not that Rob needs).

I like the MS3 sling easy to go from 2 point to 1 point (Rob has no need for a 1 point). If I was going to use it for long distance carry I would just get a Eberlestock backpack to carry it on my back (probably much more likely for Rob). Infact the Gunslinger II is a bad *** backpack designed for shooters by shooters (the founder is a Olympic Biathlon competitor).

I have seriously been considering getting the "Just One Pack". It is pretty **** nice.

Sweet Rifle Rob. I am sure it will serve you well.

If the caribou is shooting back and injures my dominant hand, I think I've got bigger problems to deal with. That being said, I didn't have any issues doing transition drills with my 3-point during the patrol rifle school, so should said caribou get a good hit, I should still be able to transition and continue returning fire.

Thanks! I hope so! It's already become my favorite rifle, and Caity has had a blast shooting it too. I'm afraid that when the LAR-8 I ordered arrives, Caity may claim the POF for herself.

I have a Gunslinger II. I'm lukewarm on it. Size is rather small unless you have a lot of ultralight gear. And the pack sways on your back if you want to retain the quick draw ability. It's **** sexy looking, though.

Just want to point out that our M110's and XM2010's and M24's all come with 3 point slings replacing the old 2 point slings, because it is easier to shoot and acquire targets with a 3 point or hell shoot offhand...... To each their own in the end, I have been trained and taught to use a 3 point sling by some of the best trained soldiers in the Army (well according to the school house anyways) hahahaha but seriously it ends up being shooters preference, the military seems to move towards 3 point, civilian competition shooters 2 point or 1 point.... IMO 3 point is better and more comfortable, but I know plenty of people that disagree and say otherwise. Shoot with what works, all the doctrine or opinions in the world doesn't change the shooters comfort level.

Did some hunting while I was laid off this winter with my A2. Photos from Raspberry Island near Kodiak. Got 2 otters, a female and a male. The female went down instantly, the male.... was another story.





Picture was taken as I was grabbing his hind legs (thought he bled out). First shot was in the neck and the I could see the bullet fragments scatter on the water behind him. He started swimming again so I took a second shot and got him in the head (you can see the flap of skin). It finally took a baseball bat to finish him. I was planning on getting a few more that day but I decided after that experience to stop for the day...


They do make such nice furs though...
