    I know the type you mean. Armstrongs of Nottingham and the Skipton Shooting Lodge offred them for many years back in the day.

    Sadly mine succumbed to a chemical reaction with gun oil, solvent or a fluid unkown and the rubber started to dissolve, leaving an appalling mess on anything it came in contact with.

    I've not seen the play myself but I know the plot, and I'm not sure this sounds good...

    Thanks guys - it looks as if the Claw is most favoured although I do now recall that a well known UK camo clothes manufacturer used to include a button on the shoulder of the jacket to prevent slippage. Does anyone have any thoughts on a biathlon type sling? - biathlon competitors always make the slings look secure when carrying and very easy and quick to un-sling and re-sling whilst competing - there must be some good reason why the biathlon type slings are not seen on hunting rifles but I am uncertain why this should be - please could someone enlighten me

    Practical Precision has just released a sling that looks very versatile and quality made product! Worth a look
