Mine wears a loop, as does my wife's (even though she has only ever used it as a hasty).

I use a standard military sling on my AR. Learned to use it at Thunder Ranch in the Urban Rifle course. Clint says: "A sling is to a rifle what a holster is to a pistol." You wouldn't carry around a pistol without a holster, so you shouldn't carry around a rifle without a sling.

Giles tactical on my "business" gun. Can be used as a regular sling too without adjustment.

Standard military style black web sling. I learned to use it from a Nam vet (my father) and then expanded knowledge while in the Army. It is used for carrying and support, don't need any gimmicks that tend to cause problems in a situation. KISS method works best.

which 'primary AR'? the plinker? -an old leather military The home Defense? - a regular old nylon Military the hunting? - a 'tactical' hands free one I picked up ages ago, works well enough in the woods

Me too. [Cincinnatus]Per current USMC doctrine: the hasty sling method is used in all positions/distances, except for 500yd prone slowfire, when a loop sling may be used.[/Cincinnatus] Although, I kinda wish that Service Rifle Competition rules regarding slings didn't run contrary to my real world. Of course, I don't wear a leather shooting coat during annual qualification either!

I must say that as a former soldier (Israel) I am quite impressed and amazed that a lot of you on this site use the Israeli slings. I think you make a good choice. I always wondered how it has not been adapted in the u.s. military, for the current sling style as I have seen in pictures does have some flaws in its design. I would be curious to hear a response from any u.s. soldier(or for that matter anyone) who has used both slings and to give me his assessment and to know if I am correct in my analysis

I like the standard military sling. I've never seen the Israeli sling. Does anyone have any pics of one they can post?
