MAKE: Ready Tactical Slings MODEL: Black Out Sling MSRP: $60
This patent-pending sling isn’t like anything we’ve tried before ... and it’s outstanding. It’s truly hands free, and it’s fast to bring up on target. It’s very different and even a bit counterintuitive to put on. However, once you figure it out, you’re going to love it. One end of the sling has a padded circle: Put your strong-side arm through and rest the pad on your shoulder. Two elastic webbed straps are fixed to the pad—one short and one long. The short one is positioned on top of the shoulder, and the clip attaches to the butt end of the rifle. The long strap should hang down: Bring it behind your back to your weak side and attach it to the handgard end of your rifle. It’s ready to go. The elastic straps hold the rifle firmly against your body; there’s no bounce at all. To bring the rifle up to engage the target, no adjustments are required. And, if you drop the rifle to grab your sidearm, the sling pulls the rifle snugly into position.
