I do not like single point slings. I can’t stand things banging around, especially when it’s Banging into me.

 

For my shotguns I use a simple 2 point sling. I believe Uncle Mike’s makes them. I don’t care for ammo loops but just the plain black sling.

Make sure it's "grabby", like neoprene or somesuch.

Ha! That’s what I mentioned in Trigger Mike’s thread about his Shockwave. Yeah, they look cool and handy until a tree grabs your gun. :lol:

Mount it so that just the grip is over your shoulder.

That would work except I cannot grab it that way. Dislocating shoulders as a youth changes body dynamics later in life. :D

I used an old AK sling slightly modified. I have a scabbard coming that I'll mount to the atv fender.

And I put some grip tape on it. Greatly helps the holdability factor.

My shockwave had a prior owner.  He had a nylon cord tied around the butt/grip so that it was tight on the grip and left a loop large enough to go around the wrist (Or hang it up on a hook or nail.)  He had worked security in the Phillipines for many years after his military service.  I removed it, but only because of the fire damage.  I can see a number of benefits to having a short sling on the rear of the gun.

 

I managed to salvage and repair his high standard pump shotgun that he carried for many years, even swapping a stock from a JC Higgins onto it.  Gun came out so slick I had to find another stock and rebuild the JC Higgins for myself.  His son is giving  back to him for his birthday later this month.  Waiting to hear about his reaction.
