Welcome to the forum! That is a great first question!

Do you want to carry your shotgun in the field, muzzle UP and over your shoulder, sort of behind you? Like marching soldiers do.

Or,

Do you want to carry it semi-horizontally across your chest where you can quickly snap it up to your cheek and get on target??

OP, I’m not sure what model you’ve purchased but looking at the 940 on Mossberg’s website I don’t see any sling attachment points on the shotgun. That doesn’t mean you can’t put a sling on it it just means that you will need to get creative.
As nitesite mentioned you need to first decide on the type of sling. Traditional 2 point sling or a single point type of sling.

513, adding sling swivels should be no issue once you've decided on the width of your sling. One caution regarding a sling which holds shells. These types of slings really throw the balance of the gun off and impact both your pointing and tracking ability. Plus the balance is constantly changing as you use shell from the sling.

I'd recommend a plain two point sling. The real decision points are the width and if you want it plain or padded.

A pouch on your belt will hold shells but if you want shells on the gun there are several side saddle shellholders available.

Also, welcome to the forum.

Regards

Check out the Mossberg site. Go to their store. They have a half dozen “basic” two point slings in various colors and camouflage patterns. I own one and they are very reasonably priced and of excellent quality. I’m extremely pleased with mine.

Wal-Mart has five or six different padded or unpadded slings in black or camouflage, with the sling swivels already on them so you only need on your gun the swivel studs (the post with the hole in it) front and rear, and all of those slings are under $20. They are in Sporting Goods of course, right between targets and gun cleaning supplies.

They are pretty decent quality and always in stock at least where I live. I've bought three or four of them and they are just fine for my needs.

If you buy a sling without swivels figure on $6-$10 for a pair of them. They are fairly "universal" to fit practically anything.

Shotguns don't require anything different than any other long gun.

I remember purchasing a 25 round sling/bandolier after my first Mossy 500 pump gun. The picture looked real cool. When I received it I installed it on the gun and loaded it up. My god it was so heavy and unwieldy that I immediately gave up on it.
Fortunately the sling fits around my waste and can function as a bandolier so all is not lost.
