Backpack chest strap over sling.

I do this when I need my hands, and I do not want to stow my rifle.

I would venture to guess that the "Big Ol" button sewn on the shoulder of my plaid mackinaw isn't what people would use today.  :dunno:

Both of which date myself.

I use to sew a small button on the right shoulder of all my hunting jackets or pack strap.

The Claw Sling also helps to keep from slipping.

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Hands are for carrying a rifle, slings are for shooting or carrying over your head and arm if you need both hands temporarily.

Slogan Outdoors http://www.sloganoutdoors.com/ makes a decent rubber sling that stays on your shoulder pretty well if you must carry it that way and will also work as a shooting sling and a very secure double pack strap style sling when you need both hands.

The Gun Bearer drives me nuts, think I would rather leave my gun in the truck than carry it that way again.
