Another neat piece of kit I picked up at the NRA Convention was this innovative new sling:
That's a Slogan Outdoors synthetic rubber sling. The elasticity of the rubber itself is part of the ingenious retention system, which allows the sling to hold a rifle in place whilst hiking through the elements in search of prey. It's made in the USA, very reasonably priced (MSRP runs right around $40 for most models; some are a little more, some a little less), and they're guaranteed for life.
The good folks at Slogan were kind enough to run a quick demo for us on the sling:
You had better believe this is going on the Conspirator should there be prairie dog hunting in the future. This iteration is a standard sling configuration - two swivel swing attachment points - but they also have a tactical version available. There's also a version for the bowhunters, and Michael has one that he'll be reviewing. It's a great looking product, a solid concept, and I'm looking forward to trying this one out both in the field and on the range.
Full report to follow!
That is all.
