Ok. I didn't know he sold them. I read a few posts and it reminded me of reading it way back before I joined.
Looks like an easy diy project , but since it's a member that sells them, maybe I'll go that route instead.

The frankenstud is obscenely expensive for what it is. You can buy a pulley at Home Depot for $4, remove the wheel, and attach it to your pack to get the same thing for 10% of the price.

I think I will make and experiment with the Safari sling before going the other route. I am getting out the leather straps and hardware this week.
They both look like good concepts. I just need to try to see what works for me. I'd like to see more videos other than Boonies. It's been around a couple decades so there should be some on YT.

Obviously I can't make everyone happy but trust me...I'm not bending anyone's arm and you can always get by cheaper to rig up something with made in China hardware from ChinaDepot

But really?

Frankenstud insanely expensive for what it is?

You must not buy much 6061 bar stock aircraft aluminum or own a Okuma CNC Lathe or lathe tooling.....or own and use powdercoating paraphernalia
But by all means you-be-you

I made one and used it for a season to see if I liked it. I did so I bought a real one. I just used a piece of nylon strap and a couple pieces of paracord.

Good idea.
I went over a quick inventory of hardware in my shop.
I'm fortunate to have what's needed for it on hand.
It puts the right side up for a quick access handy position. Looking forward to trying it soon.
Thanks

The Boonie Packer is made to keep the top up. The ends attach to the swivels so there's a strap on both sides of the gun holding it upright. The ones on the butt are long enough to allow them to fall away when you bring it up to shoot. I think you'll find it much easier to carry that way than on it's side.

Most folks who have never seen a Safari Sling in use have lots of uninformed opinions about how it works.....


Casey

I've seen them in use by two hunters, these jokers were pointing their rifles at everyone around them. I asked them to not point their rifles in my direction. They acted like it's no big deal, cuz they were using that type of sling. After a few other hunters talked with them, they thought it might be a good idea if they removed their slings.
Saying that, I have not read any instructions on how to use this sling. I didn't think it was a great idea at that time, nor do i wish to learn about them. I'm happy with what I use in a safe manner.

Take care.

I use a Safari. I've said a number of times that muzzle control is it's 1 drawback. You need to pay attention when with other people. It's very easy to slide the gun forward or back to point it up or down but you need to remember to do it.

Indeed.
I think that's a given when handling any firearm regardless of carry method.
Muzzle discipline is a must.
Cooper's Rules of firearm safety.

Rule One: All guns are always loaded.
Rule Two: Never let the muzzle cover anything which you are not willing to destroy.
Rule Three: Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
Rule Four: Always be sure of your target.

I've seen trained LEOs AD on the line and cleaning, AFTER I warned them. So, I am convinced that safety rule repetition , frequency and discipline is key to safety more than any thing.
Carry methods all have pros and cons. For example, thunder wear, SOB, or appendix carry of sidearms.

Well, I'm sure god would perform (another) miracle to ensure your safety, so no need to worry.........

Wow, Crappy Hamper knows all 4 rules of gun safety, Good job Frank.
Now recite your ABC's for us.

Crappy is a tactical mall ninja, dangerous weapons trainer, kukri wielding super hero you know.

"Carry methods all have pros and cons. For example, thunder wear, SOB, or appendix carry of sidearms."

I'm not sure I have ever read such an insightful analysis of our carry options before.
Frank be the man! Laying it all out so we can all grasp this complicated subject matter.

You need to work on your come backs Frank; that one's pretty weak.

Also Frank, it's not cool to change the title on Ted's thread.

Reprobate? There was a guy who talked about judging others, wasn't there? What was it he said, "judge not" or something like that?

What was that guy's name again?

Crappy Hamper's name is Frank. At least that is what his buddy Wabigoon calls him.
