Loose Rounds published a tutorial on USGI sling use. Good stuff.
Of note, they talk about moving the sling swivel closer to accommodate those with shorter arms. I've actually contemplated buying a 15" rail so I can move the sling swivel out farther to accommodate my long monkey - arms.
Funny conversation from my dojo last night:
Me: "So what do you think I'd do if I saw one of you students out in public getting bullied by another kid?"
Student (with enthusiasm): "Pull out your gun!"
And thus came a short lecture on not seeing everything as a "nail" when one has a hammer.
Every man and woman who believes in preparing for uncertainty should own two shemaghs. After you purchase one, the next logical question becomes: "how does one tie a shemagh?"
Art of Manliness has a great how-to article.
It would be wise to experiment and determine your preferences, then commit to memory a couple of tying methods.
"I see your label 'JBT' and can only presume it means 'Jack-Booted Thugs'. That's a very nasty way to describe those that protect you from bad guys who break the law. Why so much hate for them?"

Went shooting with my son today. He put 150 rounds of M855 through his M4.
I got to test several other types of ammo in my new SPR build: Winchester match 69 gr., Hornady Super performance Match 75gr. 5.56, Hornady Match 75 gr., Federal Premium 77 gr., Nosler Custom Match 77 gr., and Fiocchi 77 gr. Matchking HPBT.
The Nosler matched the performance of the Federal Premium 69-gr. that I shot the other day. All others were not quite on the same level. None of them were over 2 MOA, but only the Nosler and Federal Premium 69-gr. were sub-MOA.
Interestingly, they both shot to the same point of impact (POI) as M193 clone ammo using my ACOG. That's good news, as they both should follow the BDC fairly closely according to published data. Either round should buck the wind much better than the lightweight 55-grain M193.
Given that price was the same ($19.99 per box of 20 rounds), I may stock up on the Federal Premium due to availability. I can find it at most Academy Sports stores in Tennessee, whereas the Nosler has only been found in a sporting goods store in Chattanooga.
