I've noticed that several people on here have used para cord to attach their slings, and I'd like to do the same. However I don't know where to get the stuff, and was wondering where you guys got it from?

Thanks.

There's a couple different kinds of paracord. Four strand and seven strand. Looks like the slings used seven strand.

I buy and then die the Wal-Mart cord bought in the camping section. It comes on a red plastic 'reel'. Cheap.

I bet you could get a bunch of para-cord from a para-chute! [:P]

Sportsman's Guide sells paracord, although I don't know the quality, number of strands etc. [url]http://www.sportsmansguide.com[/url] "Each individual inner strand has a tensile strength of 30 lbs. Minimum tensile strength of all 7 strands together is 550 lbs. 100 yds. per spool Ideal for camping, fishing... everything under the sun!" WX2 - 15501 - Para Cord, Olive Drab $ 15 They also have white and black for the same price.
