Well after shooting #1 and #2 for a while each day. I have found out that just because I thought these slings felt nice in the hand, I was finding out, I really didnt know what "nice" meant, as far as functinality and comfort. So I am learning as I go and making these are a lot of fun even though I dont have all the tools, I am making due. So between #1 and #2 I thought, I would like #1 size, while shooting however, I felt like it needed to be larger. So I built #2. Although #2 fits the size, it does not fit the length and that is why I built #3. I just finished her and put on a set of bands I had extra. So far, I am lovin it!!
