Was getting frustrated trying to figure out how to carry a .22 rifle in my Tara when it dawned on me- biathlon double shoulder sling

I think it is possible to use the HPG shoulder harness for this by taking that larger middle webbing loop and connecting it to the front of a rifle on a swivel stud. If you remove the 2 shoulder strap webbing and you can thread and connect them through those dock and lock hardwear- then connect them to a swivel stud at the butt of the stock.

it could be worn over the Tara in theory, just disconnect the sternum strap and unmount it for your back- could make for a very stable way to carry

I was trying to get it to work but do not have any swivel studs on my rifles.  I was cleaning my .22 so here is a mock photo with an old pea shooter

and here is the inspiration

So you would remove the whole pack to shoot and it would be hanging from the rifle when you fired, or am I picturing it incorrectly? I am not sure that I would want the weight dangling if I understand things.

I have VCAS two point slings on all of my rifles or at least provisions for them, except my marlin 30/30.  The 30/30 lives in a saddle scabbard and as a result I try to keep it as slick as possible. The other rifles are setup for carry.  On my hunting rifles I run a bottom swivel in the front and a side swivel in the rear on the rest of my rifles I have two side swivel cups.  I have found that for me, I can use the adjustment loop just like a traditonal leather sling. By that I mean I run my arm through the loop and tighten it down over my arm and then have a shooting sling for more secure carry. For brush hunting I use it in normal front body carry.  This allows the sling to support my rifle while glassing, working my way through the brush or any other time I need a spare hand and still have the rifle at the ready.  When I am traveling the rifle is either strapped to the side of my pack if it is a larger pack and I don't think I will need the rifle or slung over my back adjusted so that it sits behind my right hip. In this position the adjustment still allows me quick easy access just by loosening it and pulling it forward, but it is more out of the way than in front.  This is the way I would most likely have it with the tara most of the time. I just got my tara and as a result haven't carried a rifle  like that yet, but I have done it with several other packs with the same harness and I haven't had any issues. I know that tab makes a biathalon sling and figure it would be easy to rig something so you didn't have to have it as part of your pack.

With the Tara on I am picturing you would need an additonal HPG harness to connect to the rifle and it would ride over the Tara pack. I am trying to find a hands free method that allows me to run without having my rifle bounce around. I'll check out tab gears sling- thanks.

Gotcha, I wasn't picturing a second harness, and thus my confusion. That should work well, and would probably be more comfortable than the tab gear ones. I should say I haven't used one. I just saw it at a class. I have a friend, who posts on here actually, who was doing a lot of running/ruck marching awhile back. I know he was a bit constrained on what he used during the training and actual event, but he set up his sling to hang behind his back or maybe I should say right hip cinched down tightly and said it worked just fine for him.  He was using a VTAC sling instead of the VCAS, but should work with either one.
