I really like the prices. Anybody use one?

Funny, when I asked this very same question several mounths ago, I got no reply. But to answer your question, they are nice slings. I have one on my 20" AR15 and really like it. It is simple and easy to use. The only drawback might be the way the release tab is held on the strap - with the sew on piece of cloth(?). But mine has held out great.

The last time I remember this question being asked there were numerous replies.

The Boonie Packer is an excellent sling considering the age of the design, but slings from The Wilderness and CQB Solutions are more advanced designs using higher quality materials.

Check out the Isreali slings. They are very similar and inexpensive. I have an old Boonie Packer around somewhere. The only problem with two point slings is that they make transitioning to your pistol a little more difficult.

Since it came up........
I bought a BP sling out of a gun shop's "junk box" a few years ago, but have not used it. Since I have no instructions, how does it attach?

I have been using a Booniepacker tactical sling for a few years and it hasn't failed yet.
I believe mine is a BP-43 for a carbine. allows high low carry and functions as a single point sling if desired. Mine works fine and still even looks good!

I made a "2 point" sling out of some (CQB solutions) OD SPECTER gear material when they still sold raw materials. It works so far, nothing fancy. K.I.S.S I am not one of the pros but this will do until i make my mind for a professional job.

I have the Boonie Packer 2P-basic, which I'm exchanging for the M4 rear converter. I like it so far!
