Default Safety

[QUOTE=neilL;214012]Same - done some .22RFLR and also heavier loads with a single sling attaching and detaching at the handstop. Having to maintain the connection at the handstop and removing from the upper arm is just plain hazardous in a wood with the usual trip hazards never mind having a long dangling strap swinging from the front of the rifle. '

The rules as they stand create a potential safety hazard.

I've been testing two of these SP slings myself, trying to comply with the rule of having it fixed to the rifle and I can state that without a doubt the use of a SP sling, permanently fixed to the rifle is an accident waiting to happen.
