While slings have occasionally been employed as shooting aids, most systems were awkward to handle and required a significant amount of time to implement. In 1986 Ching took a rifle class at the American Pistol Institute (now called Gunsite Academy) in Paulden, Arizona under Jeff Cooper and becoming mildly irritated with the military sling's disadvantages, Eric Ching conceived a sling system which was handier and quicker. The sling was adopted by Cooper in his scout rifle system and named after Ching. Galco offers Ching slings as well as their Safari Ching Sling (8 oz) the 3rd generation of the sling that requires only two sling swivels.

Famous quotes containing the word origins:

—Katharine Hamnett (b. 1948)
“The settlement of America had its origins in the unsettlement of Europe. America came into existence when the European was already so distant from the ancient ideas and ways of his birthplace that the whole span of the Atlantic did not widen the gulf.”
