    Yes, my first inclination was it had to be strap, not the lug. Usually I
    don't carry that combo in that manner, but rather all attached to a tripod
    which I carry "rifle style". I'm glad it happened on grass rather than the
    rocks on the edge of the beach I had been travelling over just a minute
    earlier.
