We won’t beat you up HT.  Not even for sayin “kingscrew”.

 The only place you are likely to see a sling used in this manner is on the shooting range.  It does two things: pulls the rifle into the shoulder and assists in a steady hold of the rifle.  Both of these things improve accuracy.  I’d guess that my prone shooting group sizes are nearly cut in half by using a sling.

I was married to a woman that loved garage sales. Friday morning she'd be out and doing the circuit. The local paper had a section devoted to garage and yard sales, so she'd get a copy and take off early. One Friday she got a Springfield 1903 stock in great shape for $4 and this early Eddystone P14 action (ERA 516xx) for $70. I hung the Springfield stock on the wall in the kitchen, a great decoration, and had a local gunsmith install a Shilen XX barrel on the P14 action. The unfinished stock came from Great American Gunstock, no longer in business. I completed the rifle in 2002, she died in 2008 and I inherited all her firearms. Fannie May called, wanted me to pay off her Student Loan debt, but I had to refuse, she incurred the debt before we were married. They never called back.
