I thought it was hilarious.
Anyway on a more serious note, unless your planning on humping the rifle/shotgun some great distance while on foot, there really is no reason to put one on there.
I've aquired several slings over the 35 someodd years that I've been hunting & shooting but only one (a single point quick detach bungie) ever see's any real use & that one is attached to an airsoft PTW that I play 8 hour long mil-sim games with.
I wish I didn't need it on there because like all slings it has a habit of getting in the way, but since it's quick detach I can take it off & put it back on in a matter of seconds, having to screw around with a regular two point sling all day would drive me bonkers.
Just my .02 on the topic.
