I picked up my first .22 rifle the other day. With all this anti-gun stuff in the media, I figured it was now or never. And I chose now. For anyone wondering, I live in NY, and its a Savage Arms 64F auto loader. Came with a scope, and a 10 round magazine.
My brother in law, who is in the Army Reserves, is going to teach me how to shoot it the next time we have a free day on the same day. (looking like 2 weeks). That said, I have picked up a package of snap caps to practice with, so I’m not a complete noob when we do go to the range.
But, while practicing, I’ve been surprised by how heavy it is. And, I don’t pretend to be a strong guy. I’m an IT guy by trade. We aren’t known for being particularly robust. So I wanted to get a sling for the rifle. But the trouble is, it doesn’t have any sling attachment points on it. So, instead of drilling holes into my first rifle, I wanted to try and find some other slings types.
Is there a general sling rule of thumb to try and look for?
