Yes I do. I shot with the velcro strap for years. As we all know, once they get used a bit, they tend to let you know just about where you've been wearing it as far as tightness. The one thing that caught me right off the bat with the buckle release is, from day one, you know exactly where you had it set last time. Not having the release in the same spot each time is just another variable that can cause minor variances in accuracy and feel. I know exactly what strap hole to use if I'm shooting in warmer weather with light gloves or no gloves, and what hole to use for heavier gloves in cold weather. Just a bit of a confidence builder I think.
