Handgun Sling

Here is a different method of carrying your handgun for self defense. It is a simple design. The handgun sling is a loop of cord, that looks to be elastic. The ends are joined by an 8mm tube and looped onto the cord is a coin tab. You loop the Handgun Sling around your belt, insert the tube into the muzzle of your handgun and tuck the pistol into your pants. Then you use the coin tab to lift the cord up and over the rear of the slide. Thereby securing the pistol.

This style of sling just looks complicated and it takes too long to get the gun out compared to other weapon retention systems. My biggest concern is that there is nothing to cover and protect the trigger guard and the trigger. Also, you are shoving a foreign object inside the muzzle of the pistol.

    Every time I read about a ccw story on tfb I find comments obsessing about draw time like everyone works as undercover cops in a cartel drug lab or regulary have to shoot through carjackings and robberies.

    Just carry with no chambered round and nothing can happen, not with this string, not while reholstering a regular holster. There are police forces around the world where this works well. Avoid situations where you don't have one second to rack it. Get to cover before you try to be a gunslinger. Perhaps move to a nicer neighborhood where ccw is not a must. Join a LEO where you can find an outlet to your fast ccw drawing skillz.

      @Ripley Carrying chamber empty works for some. But I dont want to be caught in a scenario where I have to use my other hand to do something like protect myself or call 911. By doing so, I cannot rack a round in the chamber.

    Yeah. Worst idea ever! Lets cover off on our own hand while we monkey with this thing behind our backs. What could go wrong?
