Received this email today from Mike Moore, who is a former SWAT Sniper and Gunsite Precision Long Range Instructor.
He has been testing the Pronghorn for us over the last month. Here are his thoughts on the sling.

I spent yesterday afternoon shooting with your sling. "I love it!" As you
know I do rifle instruction at Gunsite and here in Arnaudville. We are
stressing being able to shoot a rifle making first round hits to vital zone
areas under real field conditions. This means no benches etc. The sling is a
great way to enhance our skills and our "body support". Most slings are
simply carry straps that can be used as "hasty" slings, but they are slow
and also put relatively equal pressure to the rear part of the rifle as well
as the front, causing conflict. Military style slings alleviate this and
work great but are somewhat complicated (very few people understand how to
use one correctly) and are very slow. The Safari Ching Sling solves some of
these problems, but also has multiple straps to hang up on things. They are
also somewhat difficult to adjust. They are pricey too.
The Pronghorn looks good, carries good and is fast to get into. The loop
remains open allowing my arm to enter easily. Once locked into position, it
is a great supplemental support.
I will be using it this October in a general rifle class at Gunsite, a Mule
deer hunt and an elk hunt in AZ and a Hunter Prep course here in Arnaudville
Take care Buddy,
