when i first read this the dead shot field pod came to mind. or you could use a mono pod/pole that could be mounted like a bipod to the front sling swivel it would be easier to carry and easy to adjust to any postion

Handi's:17 Mach2, 17 HMR, 22LR x2, 22 Win Mag,17 WSM, 17 Hornet, 204 Ruger UV, 22 Hornet UV, 223 Ultra, 223(for now), 22-250 UV, 25-06, 35 Whelen, 30-30, 30-06, 20ga x2, 20GA USH, 12ga USH, 12 ga Turkey, 44 Mag, H&W 45-70 BC, H&R 45-70 BC(for now), 45 LC CC, 500 S&W and 40+ non-H&R types

If you have to shoot more than once you should not have shot the first time.

If he wants to be able to carry the rifle, and quickly bring it up to shoot, I think you're looking at it sling that stabilizes using his chest and immovable limb. It'd take some practice, but its not unlike how we sling up for match rifle shooting. The support arm really just becomes an anchor point, and the tension on the sling provides the stability. Since his arm is still attached, you might just help him sling it up and see how steady it is with a regular GI sling. Then look at stabilizing it back with a chest strap if you thought it necessary.

I wish you would rethink a hand gun. I have a S&W 8 3/8 long ,model 27. it shoots like a rifle out to 100 yds. you would take a lot of pressure off of him and ****, its fun. I'm handicapped, I know some of what he is going through. make it easy for him and you will gain pleasure. also its **** good for home.

a neighbor long since passed had lost the use
of both arms, and designed and had built a shooting
vise and platform that aimed the rifle via a pedal
system, and tripped the trigger with a cable arrangement
that he bit down on when the rifle was aimed to
his satisfaction.
I don't have any photos unfortunately, but I've seen
it done, so I know others can too
