    Hi,

    I'm looking for a nice quality WATERPROOF shooting mat and good quality STRONG gun sling and attachments.

    I've seen this and that on Ebay, but its hard to know what will last and what is rubbish??

    Is there a good shop on line that only sells quality stuff, making chosing easyer?

    What have you guys found that works well?

    Thanks.
    Rob.

    Hi mate,

    I'd say the AIM mats are probably the best out there, well worth the money but I'd have to pass on the sling part.

    Have a go at making your own sling....from paracord.
    Cord is £5 ish for 100ft.....loads of colours available including camo of three or four shades.......plus price of clips about £12 ....and a bit of tourettes when you start !....and about 2 hours of your time.
    you will have some over to make bracelets and key fobs or short zipper tags....which end up in a square section of weave....
    you wont find stronger and they look the dogs danglies !

    Hi,

    That slang looks realy cool.
    I ordered a mat about 2 weeks ago from Sporting mats. I've had to wait a bit as I wanted blue and they were out of stock of bule. I'm sure it well be OK..

    To be honest, I'm a little unhappy about drilling into my stock. Not because I lack the skill, but because the for end swivel will be where I sometimes want to put my hand. The stock I have has the rose wood end added on. I don't trust the glue joint to hold 100% while the stock is under pressure from the sling. But where the rose wood is, is where the swivel should be.

    I'm not going to do anything about a sling just yet and see how it goes for now.

    Rob.

    Hi sunbeam,....
    I only have slings on my guns that are "pre drilled and fitted" with studs....Like you,I wont drill my other stocks.
    Thanks for your kind words.
