Rifle Slings, Holsters

There are potential locations on the LS here:
What are those grey discs (I circled one) on the stock and next to the clip? They look like potential places for some kind of connector.

As for where to attach, just get as close to the front and back as you can. They should also be on the same side (pick one: top or bottom). I would use the hole on top in front, and then drill a hole in the stock. Anyways, drill a hole (or find one that's already there) and put a key ring through it and sow the strap onto the ring, or just tie the strap through the hole.

I have a shoulder strap on my Firefly, and I love the ability to use a Firefly secondary. Besides that, I don't know what to use for the strap. I used a strap from a backpack for my firefly. On other guns, I have attached straps using drilled holes and keyrings, but I very rarely find a suitable strap for anything. Maybe Duct Tape would work? (Two long pieces of it together)
Since I don't have any holsters yet, and I've gotten tired of shoving my Nf into my pants in the heat of battle, I really want to put a sling on my LS or 3B. My question to you is, what do you guys use for a rifle sling or strap? What do you use to secure it to the gun, and where do you connect it?
EDIT-Missed Flaming Hilt's post because of my slow typing. Go with what he said.

Probably dead by now, or something.

I don't like straps on guns becuase most have to be loaded from the front and its akward with a strap on. I would use a strap from an old lunchbox because it has a clip at each end.

1. Using this hole ( Pic #4 in the pics) I wasn't able to use, the stock comfortably.
2. It didn't feel right while one my back.
So I suggest cutting a hole if it doesn't feel right. Here are some pics. Sorry for blurry pics.
The new hole that I cut.
One of the stock holes I used. Near front of gun.
Hole that I didn't like.
Me with the gun slung on my back. (Front)
Me with the gun slung on my back. (Back)
Me with the sling and being able to use the stock comfortably.
Hope this can help you, or if it was a complete waste because I didn't read all of your post. I can run comfortably with this on my back as well.

What did you use to cut that hole, a dremel? I think I'm going to try that.

I do, however, suggest putting the strap points on opposite sides of the gun if you are going to attatch from the sides. The guitar strap pegs you can just screw right on, so I put mine on opposite sides of the gun. Installing the points of attatchment on opposite sides allows the gun to sit at a more natural position when not in use. It was extremily useful when I didn't have time to reload the crossbow and pulled out the duel lock n' loads.
