    SMOOTH BORE Non~Male Of The Week.

    Hi Folks...I hope that you can help out with this problem. I have been on a defensive Shotgun Kick these days. Do you think that having a sling on a home defensive shotgun is a good idea...or not?
    I always thought they were sort of a silly addition to a home defense only shotgun. What say you?
    Obviously this "average person" (that I found on the web) thinks that they are a worthwhile addition.
    I have heard both Pro & Con?
    Any comments related to shotgun slings for home defense applications would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm afraid I'll have to withhold comment until we can pan down and see the other sling attachment point.

    Not needed IMO . I can see a sling getting caught on a door knob or other home obstruction. Also can't see transitioning from one shoulder to the other as well with a sling on. In a home defense situation , the shotgun should be in one place. In your hands and at the ready.

    I agree...Inside the home I can see situation where a sling would create more problems than it would ever solve.

    I've had a sling on my 870 - until adding a mag extension. Since which a sling is not wanted and I prefer it without.

    I used to have an instructor that would say," why do you have a sling on that weapon? Is it because you don't want or need to be ready to shoot?" All my hunting long guns have sling swivels but my sling stays in my backpack unless I need to attach it to climb or drag my kill. Somebody PLEASE give me one good reason to have a sling on a home defense long gun ???---------

    Because it's also your hunting gun?

    Because it's also your ranch rifle?

    Because you may have to grab a small child in the middle of the night and drag them down a hall?

    Well if you cleared the structure first it would seem to be a logical next step to put everyone in a safe room. It'd be ideal to cover a choke point and let someone else take care of such things behind you, but odds are you'll be working alone in this situation.

    Plus, shocking as it may be, some crazy thing no one planend on could happen that you'd want your hands free for without giving up control of your weapon.

    I'm playing the devil's advocate here. I can see good reasons to not have a sling in this situation, but I can see good reasons why you'd have a sling on it as well.
