    First attempt sling

    I've made tons of other stuff from paracord. Bracelets, key fobs, monkey fits, and even cancer ribbons. Finally took a shot at a rifle sling. Only real complaints is I was out of red and it needed to be like 2-3 inches longer. Otherwise it's not to shabby at all IMO. What say all of you?

    Nice!! How long did it take you? I find that braid to take too long... For me anyway.

    I used that to make a belt. Seemed to take forever. Literally hours. For the slings I make, I use the trilobite braid. It goes a lot faster for me.

    I made one also some time back. Didn't like the feel of it. Too stiff. And I didn't like that it cannot be adjusted, so I unraveled it and put the cord away. Experience noted.

    Also my favorite for big projects.
    The downside is that it uses a ton of paranoid, the upside is that you have a ton of paracord if needed.

    That's some nice work guys! If you ever lose your day job, you should consider opening a weave shop in the mall.
