Long gun open carry
#1
Assuming a traditional sling, with the firearm cross-slung and to the back of your person, would you carry it with muzzle pointing up or down?

I think it depends upon how you've trained to bring it to ready. Personally I would think muzzle down is easier to bring to ready than muzzle up.

That's what I as thinking as well. I was curious to see if anyone thought that muzzle up might be "safer".

Discharge with muzzle up and the round goes "up" and comes down "who knows where." (maybe on someone's truck?)

Discharge with muzzle down and the round either goes harmlessly into the dirt, or ricochets off a hard surface and goes "who knows where".



Flip a coin.

I've always heard "muzzle down in times of peace, muzzle up in times of war."

Personally, I prefer muzzle down with the barrel behind my right hand. In that position, I can reach back and grab the gun just in front of the magwell to swing it forward.

I would think down is better. Although, the one time I carried a rifle, it was in front of me, across meh belly.

Depends on the length of the rifle and type of sling used.
