Hey everyone! I had a random question pop into my head to ask y'all!
I'm not sure if this has already been asked or not.
Depending on the number of slings you have, how do you store them? I have about five or six total, and they tend to simply become a big glob on my desk. Do y'all have a special place y'all keep your slings?
Let me know!

I store them tied up in bundles in a big cardboard box. Those which do not like to be rolled up I usually just losely coil and put on top. One is on a pin board. The ones I use regularly are coiled in my ammunition backpack.
Other popular choices are coathangers, nails in the wall or clothes rails.

I hang mine over a blanket hanging on a curtain rod on my wall. I think there was a thread about sling storage where I posted a pic and so did many others but I’m too lazy to go look for it.

Always have a sling on my key ring. The others live in my room or in my pocket.

I hang em on the clothing rail in my closet. That being said, being stuffed in a backpack has never hurt either hahaha

mine are all over the place. hundred or so in bags. Always a couple in my back pocket, and a nice woven one from guelu in my jacket pocket.
I think it was made from unravelled plastic washing line. Unlike the ones made with natural materials, it doesn't mind being scrunched up in  a pocket Smiley

My leather and paracord ones don't really care what you do with them Smiley

Can you tell me how to add a video to my post ?  I get the "too large" error on my smallest one.

Thanks in advance

New to the forums and slinging. I have some questions. First, how to hold the sling? With the retention shank and release cord both over your index finger or with the retention shank hanging down and the release cord held by your thumb on your index fingers? Hope that made sense as I'm not good at explaining stuff. And when using pointy rock the glande shaped ones do you put them (say the string is laid out flat and each end stretched out) running in line with the cords or at 90 degrees to the cord? And lastly, whats everyone's favorite slinging style, and your favourite sling? I'm looking for my next sling project. Wink

always load ammo horizontal to the pouch.
unless it's spherical Smiley

Most common way to hold a sling is with the retention loop over your middle finger with the cord pointing up (ie: above the back of your hand).
The release cord us then gripped between your thumb and index finger. Or if you have  along tail for cracking it runs along your palm. You still secure it with your thumb.
Hang on I'll take a pic Smiley

Okay this is the standard balearic grip. It's not what i usually use - but it's a great grip for beginners as it naturally seperates the two cords, reducing the chance of tangling and giving a consistent release point.

I will use it for balearic slings - but not for my own.
