The Vickers two-point sling provides good weapon control when the shooter's hands are occupied with other tasks.
Which sling is right for you? For patrol or where maximum weapon control is needed, the three-point sling is the best choice. When weapon control is needed but there may be an issue with the sling getting tangled in gear, one of the modified two-point slings is the best choice. If maximum weapon mobility is required or a plate-carrier or load-bearing vest is being used, the single-point sling is the best choice, though the trade-off is less weapon control when slung.

My favorite three-point sling is the Specter Gear SOP. Its wide body loop distributes weapon weight comfortably and the cross-shoulder buckle is easily adjusted with one hand. The Blue Force Gear Vickers Combat Applications Sling is the best two-point sling going. The single-point slings reviewed here all worked well, but the bungee loop in the Blackhawk ZM provided some additional weapon mobility.
