A sling is a strap that attaches to a firearm and can be worn over the shoulder or around the body to provide support and stability while carrying or using the firearm. Used with our VR gunstocks accessory, sling benefits are:
- Improved stability: It makes easier to aim and shoot accurately, especially in situations where the shooter needs to maintain a stable firing position for an extended period of time.
- Reduced fatigue: It distributes the weight of the firearm more evenly across the body, reducing fatigue and discomfort during extended periods of use.
- Hands-free carrying: It allows the shooter to carry the firearm hands-free, freeing up their hands for other tasks or allowing them to carry additional gear or equipment. It is convenient when you detach the magnetic cups to perform secondary tasks.
- Increased safety: It prevents accidental drops of the gunstock, improving overall safety and security.
- Versatility: It can be adjusted and customized to fit a variety of firearms and individual preferences, making it a versatile and adaptable accessory for a range of shooting activities.
1 point sling versus 2 points slings?
Benefits of a one-point sling:
- Greater maneuverability: It allows for greater freedom of movement, as the firearm can be quickly and easily transitioned between shoulders or even hung in front of the shooter, which can be particularly useful in close quarters or urban environments.
- Quick access: The shooter can quickly bring the firearm to the ready position for faster target acquisition.
- Lightweight and low-profile: It is lightweight and low-profile, which can make them more comfortable to wear and less likely to snag on gear or obstacles.
Benefits of a two-point sling:
- Improved stability: It provides more stability than one-point sling, as they distribute the weight of the firearm across two points, reducing sway and improving aim.
- Better balance: It balances the weight of the firearm and reduce fatigue, particularly during extended periods of use or when carrying heavy firearms (such as the ForceTube).
- Versatility: It can be adjusted to fit a variety of shooting positions and activities, from standing to prone, and can even be used as a shooting aid to steady the firearm. Additionally, you can attach the hooks on the same sling ring, and use it as a one-point sling.
Ultimately, the choice between a one-point sling and a two-point sling depends on the shooter's specific needs and preferences, as well as the type of shooting activities they plan to engage in.
