    I was thinking about the issues with a 2 point sling hanging on the rifle when unslung and moving/fighting. Are you saying that you aren't worried about that? I just thought it was interesting to think about leaving the sling on the body (yet tight and not hanging loose) vs leaving it on the rifle. The way I understand it, if you go with a normal 1 point then the sling can be tight to the body but you don't have the option of going to 2 point. If you go to 2 point and hook or unhook then you have a looser sling hanging on you when unhooked. With this one, it stays tight like a 1 point but it gives you the option of going to 2 point to go on the back without trying to be loose enough to fight in 2 point configuration.

    Anyway, I haven't taken any of the CQB classes yet so this is just theoretical for me so far, just thought I'd mention it because it sounded like an intriguing concept.

    The 1 point is for vehicles that might explode so you take your rifle with you if you get thrown free. in CQB it's a cool guy concept along with the vfg, handy but not necessary

    If you are working in structures, tight and clean should be your motto. Snags = time, time= injury. keep it smooth.

    Better equipment is always a good thing but 'more complicated' does not equal 'better'.

    With slings, simpler is usually better IMO. Quick adjustment is often a good thing but for this...I'd rather just hang onto it. Equipment is for the things I can't do. I'd rather manage the sling myself than rely on an equipment fix in this case.

    Great points.... simple wins in close confines.
