Sometimes do, sometimes don't. I usually do when practicing shooting from position. When I'm shooting from the bench for testing loads, etc. I don't. Depends on the trip to the range. Just blasting for fun, ... usually not.

I use the hasty sling I was taught to use during bacic in 1956.

When I shoot from the bench I use the same form. I only use the bench to support my arms and elbows. Dem shoulders do hurt when the elbows get under and up. 8)

Offhand has always been my best highpower position, or maybe it would be better to say least awful. So what do I practice doing the most at the range and dry firing at home.....offhand :roll:. I bring my sling with me to the range everytime, sometimes I actually use it and practice my sitting and prone. I really should force myself to use the sling and work on my positions more.

I did during basic back in the sixties but since then I never use one. I do think that they are indeed a good aide when target shooting however ...

Thanks for the replies and your input ... :wink:

Not all my rifles have slings. I just got tired buying them. If the rifle comes with one I put it on and it stays with the rifle for eternity. But if it doesnt come with one it gets fired with out. The only time I pull slings from another rifle is if I am going to carring it in the woods. Even if the rifle has a sling I rarly use it when firing I use what is around me to support the rifle, a tree trunk, branch, rock, a hump on the ground and when there is nothing my back pack
