No Pulse Sling

Anyone use the No Pulse Sling configuration in NRA Highpower?

I just got the resown keepers and I started setting this up but I won't get a chance to use it anytime soon. If you have any feedback please let spill it.

Thanks in advance.

I used it for SR and use a no-pulse for MR now. It really has no advantage over conventional configurations and neither is "no pulse". The only thing that I liked about it was being able to keep the sling on my arm and quickly attach it to the gun. The disadvantage was that I had to have another sling (old and worn out) to use standing. The other disadvantage is that I never learned the conventional way to put a sling together and can't help new shooters with theirs.

I tried one once....never had a whole lot of luck with it. I keep my 1907 sling "conventional" per say, except that I don't leave it on the gun (I swap it out between standing and sitting). I prefer a web sling for standing (MUCH less mass to get in the way in my shoulder pocket). I still love my Les Tam slings for sitting/prone.

for MR, I have a semi-custom Fields buckle sling (nothing special, just 12" longer than they usually make a sling). actually, now that I think about it, my service rifle slings are "extra-long" (I shoot a VERY low position)

I tried every version and method of the 1907 sling I know of but I use nothing but the good old GI web sling today.

Ok, I tried this a few times and I really like it. I set the sling up on my jacket at the ready line before I put my jacket on. Then it only takes 10 seconds to get it on the rifle on the firing line. it feels just like a regular standard sling but its more comfortable. The idea is the the sling only holds the back of your arm so it's not crushing your bisep. Since there is no crush you don't get a pulse in your bisep.

Good stuff.
