Review retrieval timed out
I have used this fine quality leather shotgun sling numerous times over the years, and boy has it ever saved my bacon. While hunting, I merely stow the sling in my coat pocket, or loop it under my belt on the rear. It is not unusual to be a mile or three out and get two turkeys approaching 20 lbs each. To carry two birds and a shotgun in the hands these distances is not easy. The birds morph into 200 lbs each and the arms stretch a few inches before covering the return distance back home. Using the sling with my straight grip H & H shotgun slung across my backside has made carrying these birds considerably easier. With the length of the sling properly adjusted the gun is well planted. The sling has never even come close to coming off the shotgun on these trips.,My initial hope was this would be a good sling for my side by side gun. However after fitting it on the gun and carrying it slung into the woods, the sling slipped right off the gun dropping it from my shoulder into the mud, muzzle first no less. I can't imagine that I could have cinched it any tighter.
However as always Orvis took it back without question giving me a full refund. In fact the store employee even wanted to know if my gun had been damaged and if it required repairs. Saying it would have been taken care of by Orvis. Fortunately it was nothing that some cleaning couldn't take care of.,Bought as a present for a man with an heirloom-quality, under-over, 20 gauge shotgun.
I spent hours searching for a shotgun sling that wouldn't damage the gun, didn't require hardware, but wasn't cheap-looking and made of nylon. This leather beauty does the job perfectly, and he loves it! He took it hunting and reported back that it was very comfortable to use and easy to attach/remove.,I used this sling on a dove hunt today in which we had to carry all of our gear into the field on foot. This sling allowed me to carry a 12 gauge pistol grip O/U diagonally across my back and free up my hands so I could carry everything in one trip. Once in the field, the sling was easily removed and stowed in my gear bag. It is less bulky than a slinged gun case and it is a beautiful piece of quality leather craftmanship.,The end loops are too small to encircle the stock or grip. More lacing holes for adjustmet are needed. Otherwise a toggle loop screw must be mounted into the wood of the stock which makes a no hardware sling a non-starter.
