Another one eyed joke.  pirat 


You'd think with two eyes you could out shoot me. Keep trying.   clown

Thanks for the video Pete. I am going to give that a try. One question about muzzle down carry. It seems it would be easy to accidentally get debris in the end of the barrel. Have you encountered this when climbing thru the brush?

I haven't, but if an area is real bad i'll just hold the gun up high while going through it.

I don't shoulder the gun when i'm hunting. I hold it in both hands in front of me. Ready for a quick shot. I do shoulder it walking to new areas to hunt, and you never know when a quick shot is needed while doing that.

For a lefty like myself, that's a pretty good idea. It certainly is quick - quicker than the way I do it now anyway.  clown

I like the Safari style sling because it keeps the gun in front of you. If this works out like it should then I don't have to buy anymore slings. 

I'm short and we have short trees gnarly trees around here (no Aspens here) so I worry about bending down and poking the muzzle in the ground. I guess I could put a tab of masking tape as a protecter over the muzzle just in case (like I do when it rains).

As I walk along I have my hand on the forarm. if i see something I have to clear it's easy to pick the barrel up and over it. i can see all that right in front of me. 

With the barrel sticking up. It's harder to know when it's going to clear branches and other obstacles.

That works most of the time but sometimes you are using both hands to clear the way and that is when I could see having a brain fart and touching the barrel to the ground. 

Another thing you pointed out that will help me is there isn't as much "gun" sticking up above my shoulder. I can see that as a big plus too!
