Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

I'm Going to Build This Today.

From the forums: Make your own Tac Sling. Too cool.

UPDATE: Let me rephrase that. I would build this today, if any hardware/home improvement store within a 10 mile radius actually stocked the materials!


Further update: I purchased all the necessary materials on line from for $11.40 including postage. I should have it in a week or so. I selected heavy-duty polypropylene webbing rather than nylon, and I bought a shoulder pad, too.

Say Uncle advises checking out your local fabric shop. After, of course, I ordered my stuff.

UPDATE, 4/26: The stuff showed up in today's mail. It took ten minutes to assemble, though the instructions now advise that the short piece of 1.5" web should be 7" and not 5" for ease of assembly. Now I have a tac sling for my AR! Very cool. There's also a PDF file of the instructions if anyone wants to download it:

I want to add something else: This sling, while costing about $11, is a damned nice sling! At least as good as some commercial units I've seen with much higher price tags. Well worth the time & money.
