But the Magpul M3 so you don't have to buy another sling when you realize how much you dislike single point slings. It just save the trouble and money

The Magpuls are nice, IMO can be a bit complicated (if you have one of those that can transition from a 2 to 3 to 1...I have Magpul, Blackhawk, Troy, and Cheapznit...to be honest, whenever I see a Blackhawk single point for $25 or so I usually buy them. Cheap and reliable...same thing with Troy's priced around $35 at gunshows.

Best sling on the market is the VTAC. There is a reason you don't see operators or competitors running single point slings, it allows the rifle to move too much while slung

I actually like my single point sling a lot...I don't like how the two point slings felt on an AR. My favorite is this one:

Single points are good if you are going to be standing still the whole time its in your hand. Unless you are some sort of armed guard I doubt you will be doing any of that. And even standing still I would still say the 2 point is better.

Buy a padded Vtac.

I run a single point. It's more comfortable for me. It makes it easy to drag dead pigs.

I hate my single points.
Magpul and a Blackhawk.

VTAC padded or Magpul padded MS-2.

I don't like the single point for spot and stalking.

I've had to add a QD on the rails of my ARs to set up what I like. That's being comfortable hands free for using my binos and shooting sticks but still have the gun ready to quickly shoulder and shoot.
