Do you put a black sling on your EBR, or a contrasting color?

Whichever one I ordered/have available?

I'm going with black, by the way.

Mostly because the only slings I've bought are black.

I have an OD green sling on mine. Looks great.

Get both!
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:07:24 PM EST
Some are black, some are OD green. Depends on the rifle and what type of sling I put on it, too.

The same color as your work, SHTF, lizard people or zombie clothing. Minimize contrast as much as you can. Of course you're carrying a black colored rifle... but still...

If the sling is simply a truck to range carry strap, then get what's cheap.

I have a green leather Valmet sling on my DD Ambush.

I got a bunch of funky FDE and blurple Kryptek ones from BFG's bogo sale last year I don't know what to do with.

I have an FDE sling and ACOG on my black rifle, looks pretty good.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:25:32 PM EST
All my AR slings are VTAC or SOB in coyote brown.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:29:45 PM EST
Whichever one matches your purse
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:30:42 PM EST
I prefer to color coordinate.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:32:18 PM EST
I have a coyote sling on my black rifle, I like the contrast.

Two black.

One gray.

Pink when available. Keeps your buddies from wanting to steal your shit.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:39:06 PM EST
It should match your purse and shoes.

"Always bet on black." I heard Wesley Snipes say that once.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:55:35 PM EST
almost always black

though I went fancy on my patrol rifle, Kryptek Typhon
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 2:56:27 PM EST
FG or grayish
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 3:38:38 PM EST
On ARs, I prefer the OD green cotton web sling (i.e. the sling originally intended for the M14). The nylon black sling works, but OD variant is cooler.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 3:51:20 PM EST
Well OD green of course.

Foliage Green

I like the sling to match the furniture.

I prefer color if I can get it.

Black on black guns, brown on wood guns.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 8:10:34 PM EST
I have three of them and they are all black.

I don't even have a black rifle so.....
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 8:13:04 PM EST
People still have black rifles?

I discovered that rifles seem to shoot with the same accuracy no matter what color they are, so yeah, I still have black rifles....  
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 8:24:06 PM EST
The question presupposes that I have a rifle and colored slings from which to choose. If that is my greatest concern this evening, am indeed a most fortunate person.

Basic black is rarely wrong, but a nice ox blood colored military styled leather sling on a Garand that has a walnut stock with all sorts of fiddleback grain in the wood, and a deep reddish brown color to the wood really is gorgeous.

I went black, next will be another color to swap out time to time. May as well "get both"

I never really thought about sling colors.

2X DCM guns have black leather Turners.
2X Windhams have tan leather Turners
1X RRA has a tan Magpul gen1 MS3.
1X Bushmaster carbine standard M16 sling in black.
1X PSA carbine black Vickers.
1X Armalite carbine has a black leather Turner.

Sadly they were all lost in a boating accident/fire/tornado/hurricane.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 11:14:45 PM EST
Ha you funny OP.

Now that I think about it, almost all my slings are different colors. Leather, black, tan, coyote, kryptek, OD.
I don't think I have an all-black gun. I don't even like all black handguns.
I LOL at guys who have camo pants/shirts/plate carriers but sport a BLACK rifle.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 11:21:32 PM EST
Black, it goes with everything.
If I'm mixmatching sling/rifle color combos now I have to worry,
do my socks go with this?
What color belt?
Tie, no tie?
Etc.....
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 11:25:36 PM EST
Generally black because that's the cheapest BFG sling.  With the recent sales I've bought other colors because they are cool.
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 11:32:49 PM EST
I like either, I got the stealth grey magpul sling for my last rifle. thinking about changing the stock and grip to grey as well.
