    That 3D Hunter came today, just got back from the range a little bit ago and really liked shooting it. I had to make a few sight adjustments because my anchor is different, so everything was shooting left. Just gonna have to keep at it to get a consistent anchor since I haven't really ever shot a hand-held before. I can say that I felt like my shots were much tighter and noticed a big difference in my 40-50 yard shots being much more on target than my wrist release (Fletcher .44)

    Gonna figure out how to make a "sling" for it.

    Tied up a sling tonight. Poked around for a few things that I have seen before and just went at it ... nothing like problem solving a diy ... and paracord is fun. I'll get some picture up tomorrow.

    Certainly useful. I have 100ft of it just sitting there waiting to make a couple of lanyards. Even bought some 'skull' beads to fancy them up. Might even look into making a belt.

    Got a good amount left, plan on making a lanyard for my range finder. Have 1 thing I want to change on the release sling and that is a clasp that I will add later.

    Not the best pictures, cell phone with crappy flash = bad image ... but you get the idea. Yes I used a Gorilla to model the photos.

    Basically used paracord as the main lanyard, did up some cobra weave and then another cobra to use as a 'tight/loose' line. Have it hooked up with a small ring at the bottom to another paracord knot that goes through the handle. Would like to attached a clasp at the end to to have a quick connect for in/out of the stand or target.

    Well done droppixel, very nice!

    How does the 'tight/loose' line thingy hold? I would have used a 'Cord-Lok' (http://cgi.ebay.com/Coghlans-Coghlan...-/110532810240) mainly because of how lazy I am.

    It actually holds fairly well. It is a tight knot, but loose enough that you can move it. Closes up the strap enough to keep it from slipping off my hand. I have seen a bunch of people that have made these do the same thing, so I figured I'd give it a shot.
