AbstractA sling assembly includes first and second straps with a shoulder pad therebetween, the straps releasably attachable to a user's belt. A flexible strap extending from the sling assembly includes a female fastener for connection to a male fastener previously affixed to the shotgun or the like. The male fastener includes a post with flared head attached to a first Velcro® strap. A second Velcro® strap is affixed to the weapon's stock. Upon wrapping the first Velcro® strap about the stock, a releasable connection occurs between the Velcro® straps with the male fastener in extension from the stock. The male fastener is presented for releasable connection to the female fastener in rotation therebetween to preclude interference of the sling with functional manipulation of the gun. A locking mechanism further secures the connection of the male and female fasteners.
