If he had a springer with him I'd guess it was a shotgun.

They are called "slings" not straps.:pAnd yes,perfectly legal to carry a rifle/shotgun on a public road when going from one shooting area to the next here Provided as said unloaded,and in a non threatning manner. Up to you whether you want to carry the gun slung or broken over the crook of your arm,or "Safari style",broken ,unloaded with you holding the muzzle[s] and the mechanism over your shoulder.About as common a sight in the country as cattle being herded along a road at this time of year.

Funny, you can walk along a road way ( public area ) with a rifle or shotgun . I cant walk out my front door with an airsoft gun ( includes airsoft shotgun or rifle ) , unless it's in a proper gun case . Has to be in a case while being transported . Can't be used / seen in general view of the public etc etc .

Breaking any of these rules results in confiscation of the airsoft gun and possible prosecution under firearms laws .

Because we airsofters don't have license for our rif so any body can walk in and buy one so if the law wasn't there every Tommy 46 convictions would be walking acting hard ruining the sport for the rest of us.

Seem to remember an old Reno side by side I used to have, having sling swivels.
