I like the Magpul MS3 sling. With an attachment points at the back of the receiver, rear if the stock and on the handguard. (As Photoracer mentioned)

There are alsocompanies out there that sell adapters to turn your regular sling into a ms3 clone. I think they're about $12

Magpuls are nice. Switching 1 to 2 point, with a quick adjustment slider gives you lots of options. I mostly like it as a 2 point, opening it and necklacing if I need to do shooting stuff, but the 1 point has its uses as well, especially on something small.

Just like most questions that start "which is the best ______", there will be plenty of opinions but the best answer is usually something like whatever works best for you/your specific weapon, situation and use, and training.

Now, which is the best rifle for me, an AR 15 or AK 47?

But honestly, I think it all depends how thick your body armor is. I have a hard time getting a 2 point comfortably around the 3 layers of ceramic plates when I am at Mondawmin.
Do you find yourself feeling undergunned with only an AK pistol at Mondawmin Mall?

Single point Jack Harper style. Lets the rifle or shotty rest by my hip when not in hand.

Oh yeah, gotta have a shock absorber thingy built in so it's not digging into my neck when bouncing.

Only 3 layers? You're brave!

Ive always like the 1 point sling. But some give yoy the option to make it into a 1 or 2 point... so why not have both lol

I just got done with about 5 weeks of training where I had to use my Ferro Concepts Slingster constantly for about 8-12 hours a day and I can confirm that it is awesome when you have a bunch of crap on your plate carrier. Really happy with this one compared to the other two points I have used in the past.

How is that 357 Sig Bar-Sto barrel holding up?

This topic is entirely subjective. However, opinion only - an adjustable 2 point sling is the most versatile. They are what generations of hunters have used and the militaries of most nations since the earliest uses of firearms. They can help you to transport your weapon and be used to stabilize your shooting position.
