Riflecraft was created in 2012 by Todd Dow, AKA Rifleslinger. He started out by writing his blog, Art of the Rifle, and then moved to making slings that have sold world wide.
In early 2020 I took over the company. My introduction to shooting sports was about as informal as it gets. I learned to shoot from my childhood neighbor and mentor. He is a farmer and taught me the basics but I did not start with a strong foundation.
In 2013 I enlisted in the Washington Army National Guard and found myself at Fort Sill, Oklahoma for boot camp. My bad habits that had developed, slowly improved over the 11 week course. Formal training stopped after Basic Combat Training, and as a 13b Cannon Crew-Member in the Artillery, my training from that point on was focused on the accuracy of projectiles weighing 100 pounds. In 2017 I was lucky enough to be sent to a Squad Designated Marksman School at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. The instruction I received helped me to overcome the bad habits I had developed and built a strong foundation for shooting fundamentals. It was great training, although there was not much focus on the use of a sling.
Becoming familiar with Riflecraft slings taught me the importance of building a shooting system in which every aspect aids the shooter in improving accuracy.
Our slings are practical, durable, and simply the best sling available for shooters who want a sling that has more utility than just slinging your rifle over your shoulder.
