FAIL: Single Point Sling Ad

Nine times out of ten if I order something shooting related it’s from Brownells or Midway USA.  There is another bargain outdoor gear mail order company that I once ordered something from and now I get a new catalog from them every two weeks (it seems).

In their latest, they offer a discounted price on single point slings.  Available in three colors and backed up by glowing online customer reviews, this sling can be yours for less than $20.  Beyond the incredible price, I was struck by the accompanying photo in the ad.

What's wrong with this picture?

Let’s get a closer look

You're doing it wrong

And then there’s this too

Seriously?

Maybe I’m being to judgemental.  Perhaps the sling is set up for someone 15 feet tall and the scope is simply mounted for shooting long range.   Like 2000 yards or something.  Either way I don’t know that I’d have supreme confidence if I had to call their helpdesk.
