    I hail from El Paso and still have family there. I designed this color combo for my mother's second husband. He's an artist that semi-retired. I made him a few tri-color shark jawbone bracelets. He liked it so much he gave one to a buddy that is a gun collector. He also saw my slings and asked if I could make one for his buddy in the same colors. I hadn't done a tri-colored sling so this is my first stab at it. I really like it! First the bracelet (the one on the right) and then the sling.

    How do you make it? My grandpa wants me to make a single colored 12in gun sling for his semi.

    That is really good looking! What were the colors you used on the rifle sling, and approx footage needed of each color?

    Colors are desert camo, tan, and teal. Length of cord depends on length of sling that you are aiming for. For a 36 inch sling I use two 24 foot strands for the two outside colors and 36 feet for the one strand on the inside.

    That is quite a project you have there, nice job btw. The colors, though singly don't really seem to match, you blended them well.

    Bamaboy, I really like the color combinations, does give them that southwest look.

    Another version of the same type of sling. This one for a lever action 30-30. Colors are OD, M Camo, and Copper for the center stripe. I wish I had a better camera!
