    what the best Sling for long walk home

    Z-aim Pro Stalker - multifunction gun sling looks good anyone tried it?

    I have tried a number of gun slings over the last year. I have found that with a moderator on and a conventional sling the moderator tends to pull the gun backwards.

    First I tried a niggeloh rucksack type which was comfy however the rifle swung from side to side on my back.

    I then tried an alexander driven rifle sling which I did not get on with.

    currently I am using a harkila backpack type rifle holder and I find it excellent. It holds the rifle straight and it does not move about and is easily released.

    I found that this type of sling caused the rifle to swing from side to side on my back and if I had to lean to the side to go round a tree it would swing against me which was uncomfartable. It was easy enough to take on and off though. As it is neoprene it bounces a bit as well.

    Although it costs a bit more, I would recommend the following one as it is comfortable, holds the rifle tight and easy to release for use. I got mine off ebay for half the price and it was brand new.

    If you have a look on the web you will find it cheaper I would imagine. To be honest I wish I had bought this one first.

    There are two self release clips on it.

    The rifle stock goes into one and there is another by your left shoulder.

    The one for the stock just holds the rifle snuggly in place,and you dont use it, it is the shoulder one that you use to release it
