I've seen the single point sling going under the off arm and under the strong arm - which is it? I appreciate your help (and patience).

While I am a two point kinda guy (until Jason wins me over, that is), I would think that the sling would go under the off arm. The whole purpose of the sling is for easy transition, whether it be shoulder to shoulder OR longarm to sidearm. The weapon should slide to the off-side, allowing access to your sidearm. If it's under the strong arm, you have two options when dropping the weapon...have it hinder your sidearm or hit you in the nuts...neither one sounds like something I want.

(Edited because I can't hit the right keys this morning...)

I appreciate the responses - makes sense that a sling should function to keep your rifle out of the way of your sidearm. From reading other topics, it looks like the ASP is the best thing in single points right now? Is that the consensus? Thanks again!

The ASP is (from what I am told by those who know such things) is a very sweet piece of equipment. I am a die-hard two point sling fan, but Jason has a great design and there are a few "operators" who swear by it. He is also currently designing an endplate specifically for the 1" webbing of the ASP. It should be on the market very soon. When the endplate is available, I will have the combo headed my way...

The ASP is it. I used to carry with an IDF type two point, and I could slide it around under the weak side, but after getting the ASP it is pretty much what I use now. As soon as the new endplate comes out I'll pick that up with another ASP.
