The TAB GEAR Rapid Adjust Sling (RAS) is the same as the regular TAB GEAR Sling from the rear of the sling up to and including the shooters loop that the shooter can slide an arm through and cinch down above the bicep.
The RAS Sling provides the shooter an ability to adjust the sling for slung up positions. By using the RAS Sling the shooter no longer has to mark the sling for different positions and experience the slow transition time when going from one position to another. The TAB Gear RAS Sling overcomes the old problems with sling shooting through the addition of the Rapid Adjust buckle that is in between the shooters loop and front swivel.
The critical adjustment feature of the RAS sling is to make sure that the Rapid Adjust Buckle is adjusted so that the shooter can easily reach the straps to tighten and loosen the sling when in a shooting position.
UNCONVENTIONAL DEPLOYMENT METHODS
If a right handed shooter carries the TAB Gear RAS rifle slung with the rifle muzzle down in the front of the body from the right shoulder it is very simple to just drop down into a shooting position and reach up and tighten the sling. Instead of the shooter’s arm being in the shooting loop, the whole body is now in the loop and the rifle is tightened down. The method is much faster than inserting the arm into the loop and just as stable.
When shooting off of a barricade or structure the shooter is able to keep the rifle slung in front and quickly place the rifle on the structure and tighten up the sling. The support arm can be sued to grip the butt of the rifle and place the elbow on the sling to exert downward pressure which tightens the sling into the barricade and dramatically lessens movement in the scope.
