Last month I took heed of St. Col. Cooper’s dictum that a rifle without a sling is not a rifle, or something to that effect, and managed to figure out how to make a reasonable facsimile of a two-point CW sling on my Garands. (I really like the CW Sling/Ching Sling concept;I could have done a 3-point Ching sling variant, but the particular sling that came with the rifle wasn’t long enough.) Getting the length right to match my arms was frustrating, but I eventually made it work. I can now mount my rifles and in superfast notime I’m slung tight.
I’ve got plenty of en bloc clips. I plan to order the Holbrook Thumbsaver shortly. Next I suppose I need to find a reasonably priced pair of bayonets.
They’ll probably try to make me undo it all at my first Appleseed, but we’ll see. There’s an Appleseed shoot in Sacramento next weekend, and I probably can’t make it, but we’ll see about that too.Of course I don’t have any .30-06 Garand ammo yet….
***BONUS*** CMP just announced they’ll be receiving enough .30-06 HXP to satisfy customer demand for “years,” in February. With their limit of 10 cases a year (almost 2k rounds) per person, that works for me.
