I was thinking about getting a S.W.I.F.T. Sling for my Remington 870. I had to get a GG&G front sling attachment to put on my gun just to put any sling on it, because it came without any way of putting a sling on. Anyway, if anybod has exerpience with this particular sling or has other suggestions please let me know.

I have the S.W.I.F.T sling for my Benelli M1/4 Super 90. As a 3 point sling it's more adapt for tactical employment of the weapon during CQB/MOUT training or other military applications. Once you've adjusted the sling properly it will allow you to hang the shottie against your abdomen/chest during fire with your sidearm or primary longbow. I find that 3pt slings are much easier to to bring the weapon up the firing position, allowing the shooter to employ the shotgun tightly into the shoulder with out having self adjust a standard 2 pt sling.Originally Posted by Eddie A.
As for use in home defense, it would make for a cumbersome employment of the weapon due to time restrictions if a critical situation should occur in the home. For me, it's just as east to pick up the shotgun and shoulder it without the hassle of trying to throw a 3pt sling over my body for what would or will be a short hump to the bedroom door or hall way. They are nice, if you are truely employing the weapon in a CQB/MOUT condition.
