    I'm looking for sling recommendation for my AR.


    I did come across the following series of videos from Brownells PoliceStore and they were very informative.


    Tactical Sling Series -- Introduction


    I think I want to go with a 2 point sling, but I'm interested in hearing what you all recommend.


    I will primarily be using it for carbine or 3 gun matches.

    You beat me to it, Phil, as I was looking up the links. I'll post it anyway.
    ***************************************************

    I prefer 2 point to 1 point. Wouldn't have a 3 point if you gave it to me.

    Highly recommend Blue Force Gear: Weapon Slings

    Further recommend this one as it is what I use:
    Weapon Slings : Vickers Sling - Acetal Hardware

    My N4 has limited travel QR cups, which is also what I recommend as attach points. I don't like spring clip attachments. YMMV.

    I agree with the 2 vs 1 vs 3. I've tried all 3 styles, converted a 3 point to a two point, and have found pretty big differences among single point designs that make some a lot better than others.

    All depends on how the rifle's going to be used, and how the sling is going to be used, but overall I learned quickly to hate the 3 point sling.

    Thanks for the replies and suggestions everyone. This really helps me to narrow down my selections.
