Default Paracord rifle sling

Tried my hand at making a rifle sling for my .17, took me an hour or two and had to "weld" some parts of the rope together but overall I'm happy with the way it turned out.

Very nice. Does it have any stretch or give to it?

A tiny bit I tied it pretty tight cause I didn't want it too bouncy.

Add ways to make the bottom end a slip knot for your upper arm and the top end adjustable for length so you can make a "tight loop sling" for long range target shooting (ie USMC rifle qual at 500m w iron sights) and that sling will be hard to beat.

Thanks guys I'm gonna see about adding a thumb loop underneath by the chest to help hold it instead of having to hold on the bottom of the stock

Is that a camo 550 cord? If yes, where'd you get it, I make the survival bracelets like that and would like to get some of the camo para cord. Thanks.

Very nice bro.
