Dave shows you some tips and hacks to run your 2 point sling like a pro. It is no secret that Dave’s preference is the 2 point but after watching this video you can understand why.

These lessons were learned at various rifle classes, sniper classes, matched and Dave’s experience using a patrol rifle over the last two decades.
