    I gave the shotgun sling a good test today, and it worked like a dream!
    Oh, I got a cheap dog collar from Dollar Store to keep the legs together---it was the smallest one they had and a nifty electric blue color.
    The padding on the shotgun sling was a joy though! I lugged it from the Lewis Creek trailhead on 41 down to a couple of locations at Corlieu Falls then back up.
    Definitely a thumbs up for this one!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    The older version of Manfrotto's shoulder strap have a 3/8" stud with a swivel that screw into the top of the tripod. I've used one with 3 different tripods now for 25 years or so.

    I have, in the past, bought camera bags at a Pawn Shop for low bucks. sometimes just for the dividers or the straps.

    Here in Houston, Collector's Firearms has a bargain grab bag with used rifle cases, holsters and straps at clearance prices (you can sometimes negotiate the price down).

    For moving around my wooden tripod, I have trussed up the legs with nylon dog collars and snapped the swivel clips of an old hippie-style camera strap to the rings on each collar.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Great idea! I have one similar for my old double barrel shotgun. Now have a new use for it.
