Why do many rebel/militia groups live to carry their guns over their shoulders? Is it more comfortable or what?

      Probably because most of these guys were previously conscripts and were taught to carry weapons like that.

      With the Germans and their machine-guns, that particular style of carry seems to have originated from the traditional "shoulder arms" command you find in most Western armies, but with the gun shifted upward and more onto the shoulder due to its weight.

    It really is more comfortable, there is a pulley effect and doesnt put pressure on your shoulder and giving your arm something to hold on to relieves it

      For detachables fingers dont fit. Its way more comfy to hook your thumb in the carry handle with the rest of the hand on the delta ring instead of suitcase hold.

      Soldiers used the handle all the time in Vietnam. I did too when the A2 was in service.

    I'm a wildland firefighter and this is how I hike with a 30lb chainsaw.

    If I had to cover a lot of ground with a machinegun in the same weight range and wasn't expecting contact that's exactly how I'd carry it.
