Yea iv always figured it was an animation issue. I remember Rockstar saying how hard it was to animate the rope from Red Dead Redemption so i can see why we havent gotten realistic styled weapon slings and other small details like that.

But i always appreciate the details. Using rockstar again, i loved that in Red Dead Redemption, every weapon had its place. Your pistol had a holster, your rifle had a holster, your knife had a holster and your rope was attached to your bag. Loved that stuff. Same goes for Rockstars Max Payne 3. Rather than have Max just magically throw his rifle on his back, he'd hold it with one hand or he'd have to drop it altogether.

The above opinions are documented to be proven right, 99.8% of the time.
