    Ok I looked back at the article and saw the image of the finished sling. I have to say I do like it and the idea of being able to unravel it in a pinch is nice but it's not really even close to the slings we used to use and make over seas. There are several differant variations to the sling and a little modification is what really makes it "yours".

      I made one a few months ago but it was too small for my shotgun and I gave it to my ex-gf's brother. When it was done it looked cool. U s start with 2 swivels clamped to a table the the length you want p. Plus 2". Have 52 feet of cord and loop it through the swivels leave a bit on the end you start at. You want to loop it so if the cord leaves the swivel on right on top it should enter swivel on left on top so when your done there a space between top layer and bottom. I'm not sure how many loops you can judge that on your own. You want to end the loop on the opposite end you started from. Then you start weaving it through the loops. Not exactly sure how to start but you should get it. Go through the top layer then under bottom layer then above top layer till the end then just reverse. I used a big 3" safety pin that was used for old diapers to help weave towards the end but any kind of dull pointy thin object will help. Hope this helps. Oh who cares why you wanna do it?!?! You want to! Why do you need a reason. Haha
