In the post listed below http://www.africahunting.com/hunting-africa/8393-guns-safety-africa.html There is a great discussion concerning gun safety. In post #17 olebailey talks about carrying his rifle using a sling. So which rifle sling is effective in Africa? I have to admit that the first thing I noticed about the Winchester .375 is that it is a lot heavier than my Browning A-bolt 30-06. Fatigue makes us all do stupid things.
