In the video below, Kurt Troter of sofrep.com shows you how to transition from rifle to pistol. SPOILER ALERT! You move the rifle out of the way and grab the handgun. Now I know that seems ridiculously basic and violates the first rule of YouTube gun videos (operators must operate operationally). It is and it does. The real takeaway here . . .
Get gear that works, make sure it works and practice. To that end, Mr. Troter’s online article is much more helpful.
I generally stick to a two-point sling setup unless I am exclusively doing CQB; the sling I am currently using is a Blue Force Gear adjustable two-point sling. [Link added.] This set-up allows me to get the primary weapon away from my centerline easily and get to my sidearm in a hurry.
The article also proves that Mr. T’s got his priorities straight:
As long as you can efficiently and safely move the primary weapon out of the way while almost simultaneously employing the sidearm, you’re good.
Hey handgunnners! Can you sling the rifle electric? Or something like that . . .
