    Tactical slings?

    I am wanting to purchase a tactical sling for my AK but would like some input first. It seems that the sling entails attachment at the for-end and at the butt but some have a extra loop near the receiver. What would you recommend as a good product. Also would you think that they are even necessary for a SHTF weapon. Here's a link I found that was a basic primer for me.

    There was a thread not long ago about slings that may give you lots of answers.

    In context, yes. You will need hands-free ability. I'm becoming more inclined to the Suarez "Basic" style for the AK. With a folding stock, and a gray or worn olive-drab sling, an AK can be carried slung at your side, under a mid-thigh length army surplus, or similar, jacket, without attracting attention.

    This is the one I'm thinking about. It has a quick adjust so as it dose not choke you when you need slack.
