BlueForceGear has teamed up with Larry Vickers to produce his VCAS (Vickers Combat Applications Sling). I’ve been through a lot of slings over the years (as evidenced by those featured here on this page), and finally ditched all of them in favour of my home-made strap when using a rig as there was no sling to get in the way. Maybe part of the problem is that there are many slings out there to meet different needs, but my particular needs as a civilian shooter are pretty basic. Nothing high speed, no life-or-death situations. Just playing on a range. So for the most part, I’ve turned down most sling reviews that have come my way, simply because I didn’t think they were different enough from what I already had on the site, or I wasn’t going to use it in the way intended.
However, the introduction of the VCAS caused quite a buzz in the shooting circles, partly due to Larry’s respected reputation, and the common knowledge that BlueForceGear offers quality and innovative sling systems. I felt that it was different enough from other 2-point slings that it merited examination. None of the 2-pt slings I’d used had quick-adjust capability.
