SWAT team uses the McLean sling in the Lewiston Maine Shooting manhunt as yet another mass shooting tragedy strikes the country. There were 18 people shot in a Maine mass shooting with victims ranging in age from 14 to 76. The suspect, Richard Card, was the subject of a 2-day-long manhunt and hundreds of law enforcement officers, including the FBI, SWAT and BORTAC worked to locate this armed and dangerous suspect. The ultimate discovery of the suspect was possible due to the hundreds of local, county, state and federal law enforcement members from all over the state and nearby areas.
Lewiston Maine Shooting SWAT team equipped with McLean rifle sling
We had incredible feedback about our rifle sling from the SWAT team responsible for the giant manhunt in Maine. When there is no time to waste in a fluid, fast moving and dangerous situation the McLean AR sling delivers. The team had to clear multiple buildings and rural areas and reported that the McLean Dynamic Retention rifle sling was the best piece of gear they’ve ever had. The McLean Rifle Sling uses our Patented Quick Release design to provide you the ability to switch from a retained 2-point position to single point shooting combat ready position quickly and efficiently. This multi functionality is unmatched by any other gun sling on the market.
On its own, the McLean Rifle Sling is a generic single point sling that offers dynamic movement with your rifle for CQC/CQB environments. It’s great for switching shoulders, shooting under cars or around barricades and even simple things such as just combat reloads or transitioning to your secondary/pistol. However, without constant positive control it is free to hit the user and makes running, or climbing next to impossible and you can forget about prisoner handling.
A generic 2-point rifle sling can be a solution to these problems but, a generic 2-point gun sling makes it difficult for the user to switch shoulders or to even reload, because of the restrained state of the rifle. The Quick Release Design of the McLean Dynamic Retention Rifle Sling offers the best of both worlds.
