I use the Turner biothane and converted it to Jim Owens' no-pulse configuration several months ago. I like it because it stays put and is much easier to get in and out of.

Let's see... I have had Turner leather, Turner Biothane, Jim Owens Turner Biothane no pulse, Ron Brown leather, USGI M1 web and a Jack Jones leather.

I have yet to use the Doc Jones but it is a stiff beefy thing of beauty. I have decided to embrace the simple M1 web this year and have been nothing but satisfied. Rigged properly it does not move, provides no pulse and is easy to adjust in position. The CMP new mfg web slings don't slip and for $10 hard to beat.

Web slings may not be as "cool" or "fancy" as a leather sling but they are every bit as, if not more, effective if deployed properly.

I don't shoot a lot and I'm no HM but I went to a web sling this year and my scores improved. It seems I can into position faster, lock in, focus and relax before the string. With the 1907 I always was taking the whole prep time to get set up and felt rushed and frazzled when time to shoot. Take it as the leg meat POV...

I have a web sling on my NM service rifle. I was just practicing prone. It locks in tight.

Seems like a waste. You could have given it to a new shooter.

Why hinder a new shooter with one? At least thats how I felt at the time. I've given away plenty to new shooters, they are not going to miss one sling.

I use Ron Brown slings. I got a Jack Jones sling at Perry last year, but I haven't tried it yet.

Default Sling question

Taking an unscientific poll here....do you use the 1907 style leather sling or a canvas web sling in CMP/NRA type competitions? Why?

I am very comfortable with the web slings, and I like that there isn't any break-in to worry about. But it seems like most of the pros are using the M1907 or similar. Trying to decide if there would be any benefit to making the switch.

Used in the proper configuration for competition shooting the web sling works just fine though a leather sling is much more comfortable IMHO. It is also very easy to get a web sling too tight which can cause just as many problems as one being too loose.

I like the Greek leather "web" sling, quick and easy and hold position.
