I am looking for just a basic gun sling. I know this sounds silly, but I have bought 3 different gun slings and I don't care for any of them. The rifle is either constantly sliding off my shoulder or I can't get the length right.

I just want a basic sling that works well and is under $30 bucks. Which ones do y'all like to use?

VTAC makes the best IMHO.

I have used several, but my favorite and the one I have switched exclusively to are the "Claw" slings. Since they are rubber they don't slip off my shoulder and they provide a nice rest under the gun when shooting out of a stand.

That is what I have been using for at least 3 years, good sling

Yep. Absolutely love mine. Especially for the price. Academy sells em, as does cabelas, and I'm pretty sure I've seen em at walmart

express sling
outdoor connection waco

been putting these on all my long guns.
quiet. one hand adjustable. inexpensive. no flex or
bounce while slung and walking like the neoprene slings
i've had in the past. it should really be called a carrying
strap as opposed to a rifle sling that's used as a shooting
brace.

More than you want to spend, but Andy's Leather Rhodesian sling is greatness.

My favorite is a spongy neoprene sling from GrovTec. It's like the Tempurpedic of slings.

I had the same problem with rifles sliding off my shoulders and tried the Butler Creek Neoprene and they are great! They have a tacky surface that prevents sliding on shoulder and they stretch which softens impact when walking. I have put them on all hunting rifles and shotguns.

Another vote for the Claw. It won't slip off, and it won't squeak.

I use the one hand adjustable leather Murray rifle slings. Made in Aledo, Texas. Not cheap.

Call me crazy, but I love the USGI canvas web slings. They are cheap and they are great shooting slings. These were designed to be used as an aid when shooting, not just to carry a rifle.

I got used to using one shooting my Garand in matches and now use them on my hunting rifles.
