Has your rifle ever fallen off your shoulder? Of course it has, everyone can relate to that, that’s’ why the Pak-Rat was invented.
It easily attaches to any binocular or backpack shoulder strap, holds your rifle sling from falling off your shoulder and is opened to release your rifle in less than 2 seconds.
Imagine you’ve booked a mountain dream hunt for an Ibex, Marco Polo or maybe an elk and or mule deer and your rifle slips off your shoulder and bangs on the rocks; is your scope knocked off? Is your high end optics and gun damaged, do you feel confident that your shot will still be on at the moment of truth?
I stopped worrying about that because I have been using the Pak-Rat to hold my rifle on my shoulder, hands free for years with no problems. I first got one about 5 years ago while hunting Alpine Chamois in Europe and have loved it ever since. It kept my rifle locked on my shoulder but came back off in a second; it’s made in Idaho and it’s only $20 bucks.
Last rifle season I hiked 56 miles over eight days. You know what all of those miles had in common? I fought my gun. Yep, even with a great sling built with non-slip material on the inside, when the backpack shoulder straps and rifle sling try to occupy the same shoulder, there is conflict – the sling wants to slide off the shoulder. Thus, we hike with one hand on the sling to counter it or at very least constantly reposition the sling strap. Not anymore because I found the Pak-Rat Combo rifle support system.
