Outdoor Connection Padded TOTAL Shotgun Sling System
Dont Underestimate this sling.
I was looking for slings for my 870 and I came across this one at the local store. I thought, How can you get any better than this. It has the magazine cap on it already so that's one less thing you have to buy. well I got it home and took it out of the package and I noticed the stock end was velcro. I was a bit disappointed at first. I figured im going to have a heck of a time keeping this thing on my gun with it being velcro. So i pulled it open and put it on the gun nice and tight and I was shocked at the amount of strength it took to pull that velcro apart. so I put it on the gun and it fits nicely. the shoulder pad is excellent. Havent field tested it yet but im certain it will working nicely.
Another BIG BIG plus to this sling is that it gets real long. Im a fairly big boy and I like to carry my shotgun not on my shoulder but across, and it gets big enough that I can carry it like that and have plenty of control of it climbing on the rocks and some of the places I go hunting.
If you need a sling for your 870. I would highly recommend this one.

Wrong Shotgun sling
I ordered a Red Head Sling. I revieved a no name brand sling. I am ok with what was sent just because i used a gift card and i was eager to get a sling on my gun. The quality of what i got is no where near compared to the Red Head i was supposed to get. I just don't understand the mix up but i don't know if there is much i can do about it now.

I have this sling one one of my 870's and I am about to purchase another. The velcro is a lot stronger than it looks. I used it for the first time during the 2010 turkey season and walked a few miles scouting for them, this sling was perfect and the padding made things more comfortable. A great solution to a simple problem.

Waiting to "field" test it.
Like another reviewer I expected the product to be a redhead brand. It is not. It does work well. I do not trust myself to modify the stock on my new shotgun for a sling, and now I don't have to. The velcro is very strong. I am waiting for deer season to test it in the field.
