Check your slings everytime!
Okay i learned a very hard lesson the other day. Taking "Carlos the Night Stalker" (my encore 204) out one evening as I stepped out the door and onto the CONCRETE steps my sling came undone and Carlos took a tumble. Naturally he landed directly on the upper turrent and crushed it by a good 1/4 inch making that Nikon Monarch a very expensive piece of junk. Now my slings are not trashy but good leather backed slings with swivels and mechanical fasteners. In fact it takes three motions just to get em undone and going out the door all the stars and moon lined up at that very moment. So before you go out the door make sure that you check your slings every time you go out the door.
