Erik,

One thing that I wish that Viking had more of were some good pictures.  I read the instructions, but I am not quite sure how you would do a transition to your weak side if needed.  It seems that you would have to slip your weak arm out, leaving it around your neck only to get into that position.  Is that correct?

To me it looks like they took the Israeli sling, and with some changes came up with a better idea..  neat.

Bidah,
       I really can't say.  My problem is that I don't go bilateral.  I'm not a shoulder switcher.  I stay strong shoulder throughout, so I've never really evaluated the slings for use with bilateral techniques.  I would think you could just loosen the whole unit and give yourself plenty of slack and switch shoulders without much trouble, but I don't know for certain.

I do know a guy who uses this sling and goes bilateral.  Let me check with him and I'll get back to you.

I''ve got a sling from Blackhawk (can't remember the model) that has a quick release buckle for transitioning to weak-side shoulder.  Admittedly, I haven't compared it to much, and I don't shoot 3-gun, but I love this sling.  YMMV.
