Using a firearm, particularly a rifle, has two critical challenges that must be overcome. First, a shooter/user must establish a stable shooting platform in order to take a precise shot. Second, a shooter must maintain vertical and horizontal mobility in order to acquire a moving or alternate target. These challenges must be overcome while providing the shooter with the versatility to shoot from the standing, kneeling, sitting and prone positions.
Any device used to overcome these challenges must be small, strong, light, easy to deploy and operate and must attach to the rifle in a simple but secure manner. The device must also meet these challenges without necessarily being anchored to secondary objects such as, trees, tree limbs, posts, etc., because the operator may find himself standing in the open with no proximate object to which he can attach.
An advantage of the Gun Lasso is that it is useful for many purposes,
e.g., suspending a firearm from an elevated support while increasing
stability and maintaining vertical and horizontal mobility; attaching a firearm to a vertical support while increasing stability and maintaining vertical and horizontal mobility; utilizing anchored line tension for stability and maintaining vertical and horizontal mobility and securing an unloaded firearm against a vertically oriented support.
Current and past devices do not allow for the following wide array of
uses as does the “HAVOK” Gun Lasso which include the following:
1) Lateral Loop;
2) Single-line to Waist;
3) Lateral Single-line;
4) Overhead Loop;
5) Prone Foothold;
6) Single-line to Shoulder;
7) Single-line Down;
8) Single-line Up;
9) Secure Line.
