Does anyone use a single point sling for a hunting revolver? Been considering that for the walks into and out of the hunting area. I have a holster for the scoped 9" SRH, but that makes it such a huge all around package that I'd almost just rather carry a slung rifle at that point.

Anyone carry like that? Decent idea or not? Suggestions on how to hook one on the Super Redhawk?

Also interested in hearing about this. I wonder if teh carry would not be a lot better than the oversized multi strap chast holster i carry my 44 mag in these days...

I wouldn't go single point but it works pretty well with a setup like mag-na-port does on their Stalker conversion with a sling stud in the bottom of the grip frame and another out past the end of the ejector rod (housing).

Hogue makes a lanyard screw to replace the grip screw on SRH grips. While the connection on a 1-point sling probably won't fit you could use a key ring etc. I have a small stainless shackle that I have used. I have this lanyard screw on my SRH and my GP100.

I'd have to replace the factory grip (rubber with side panels) with a hogue mono-grip for that, right?

Nope, just replace the screw on the bottom. Hogue sells the replacement screw with the lanyard head. There are a couple lengths, but I don't remember which one to use. A quick call to Hogue and you can find out and order. Remember, with the Hogue grips you don't need to crank down when tightening the screw, just snug.

Last season I carried my scoped S&W 460XVR on a single point sling attached at the grip butt. It worked pretty well for carry but it does not assist your hold like a 2 point sling does. I carried it about 9 total days on various hunts with no issues. Long term I will probably mount a stud on the barrel lug for a 2 point mount. I would favor the single point over a holster for a big scoped gun, especially if you hunt above the ground as it will secure your gun from a possible drop.

Oops, had a brain fart there, yes you would need to replace with Hogue grips. I'm so used to Ruger's coming standard with Hogue's already on them.

I tried a single point sling on a handgun and it didn't work all that well. The gun eratically swung around too much. Went to a 2 point and was much more in control.

You do need the Hogue grip for the butt mount. Or you need to drill / tap the frame for a stud and modify the grips to fit around it. I have carried single shots with a 2 point sling for a long time and I like that much better. My joke this past season to my hunting buddies is that I have $1500 hanging on a $2, 10-32 machine screw. Sounds crazy.
