I have a single point on my para, and it works well. I use a standard sling on my non-folder though.

single point would probably be great on a short barrel or folder, I have a Turner extra-length NM on mine (full sized)

A single point on my Izzy wouldn't keep the muzzle off the ground. I'd bet it would be handy as hell on a folder, though.

I tried out my friends once for a few minutes, real nut buster - IMHO a single pt sling is very poor design compared to a regular old 2pt

I recommend the one with the elastic (bungee cord?) feature.

That way when it whacks you in the nuts, and you instinctively jump away from it, your motion causes loading on the bungee cord.

This loading allows second and successive nut-slams to occur with added vigor.

You aint doin' it right until it whacks you in the nuts with the magazine, rear sight, cocking handle, and trigger guard all in one flinch.

Extra points if the "tooth" of the mag-release shows imbedded flesh.

I have one on a 18" para, it's a Troy IIRC, and I like it ok, it's probably my favorite single point.

I've got the sling thingy and made a 2-point sling that can easily convert to a single point when I need it. It not that bad of a nut-buster once you get used to it - you just sweep the rifle to your weak side with your weak hand while drawing your pistol. Bungee cord slings are NOT the way to go.

WEG - my wife says you should man up and wear a cup! :biggrin:
